>> Bonnie Cha: Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at www.cnet.com.
>>And today we're taking a first look at the T-mobile sidekick LX. This is one of two new sidekicks for the carrier. This one is the follow-up to a sidekick three and goes kind of more the traditional route with the flip up screen here. So they did a lot to the design, it's thinner, and it's also about an ounce lighter, so it's really nice. Also, much to my delight, they've improved the screen. It's larger, and it's much, much better, it displays about 65 thousand colors, so it doesn't look like you're looking at an arcade computer anymore. On the inside, you've got the same, full QWERTY keyboard, it's really easy to use, and spacious, so it's great for messaging, which is what the sidekick's really good at. On the back you've got a 1.3-megapixel camera, you've also got this text [inaudible] surface, so it's easier to grip. They did add Myspace mobile app, so that's great for the younger audience it's going after. But for about 300 dollars, with a two-year contract, I would have wanted more out of the device, so you might also want to check out the Helio Ocean. I'm Bonnie Cha.
