T-Mo Sidekick Tony Hawk

T-Mobile mid-Thursday updated its Sidekick messaging phones with its first limited edition of the current generation. The Sidekick LX Tony Hawk Edition both puts the pro skateboarder's look on all sides of the device, complete with blue, gray and white trim and his personal logo. It also includes functional upgrades, the carrier says: the back is given an easy-to-hold texture meant to resemble grip tape. The software is conspicuously different with a special Tony Hawk theme as well as a preloaded video and skateboard sounds when the screen swivels open.


In hardware, the Tony Hawk Edition matches the stock version with a wider and higher resolution screen than other Sidekicks, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth with stereo audio, and removable microSD storage. T-Mobile is uncharacteristically selective on details and doesn't offer an exact price or launch day; instead, the company says only that it will take pre-registrations soon and ship the new LX model in July.
