As you probably saw, T-Mobile has launched it’s latest Sidekick device. Also known as the “2008” model, the new Sidekick is probably the best yet. I’ve spent the past few weeks messing with one and it’s like a scrunched-up Sidekick LX with easy-to-hit buttons. I’ll have a full review for you guys next week, as well as a huge photo shoot tomorrow (or possibly today). So keep your eyes peeled for that shit.
After the jump, the full specs on the new Sidekick, as well as a few pics. Be sure to hit the Link up so you can vote on my Sierra Nevada-edition SK08!
