For those who have been waiting for the Sidekick 4, it’s now available. But rather than continuing to bump up the model numbers, T-Mobile is calling this device the Sidekick LX. But don’t get confused by product names. This model — unlike the Sidekick iD — is a true successor to the Sidekick 3.

As the new signature model, it boasts a number of firsts for this series. For example, it has a 3-inch, WQVGA (400 by 240 pixel) screen that uses high-definition Sharp Aquos LCD technology.
