Today T-Mobile USA unveiled its latest, and most obviously greatest, Sidekick to date: the new 2009 version of the Sidekick LX. The new Sidekick LX sports a host of heavily upgraded features that are sure to garner the attention of T-Mobile loyalists.

For starters, there is a new super-wide 3.2-inch display that boasts 854x480 pixel resolution. That's 33% percent more pixels than even a regular VGA resolution display. The new LX is also equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera with an autofocus lens, for crisp photos and videos that can be easily uploaded to your favorite social networking site, thanks to tight integration with sites like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter.

To get those uploads and downloads moving quickly, the new Sidekick LX also features support for T-Mobile's 3G network. Other highlight features include MSN, Yahoo!, and AIM instant messaging clients, Bluetooth stereo, and a built-in GPS receiver.

In a nod to the fact that many Sidekick users have to live in the world of jobs and paychecks, T-Mobile is even promising a Microsoft Exchange mail server client in the not so distant future.

The new Sidekick LX measures 129.5mm x 61mm x 15mm (5.1in x 2.4in x 0.6in) in size and weighs 162g (5.7oz). The device's 1250mAh battery promises 3 to 5.5 hours of talk time, or 8 days of standby time. It is available for pre-sale today for US$199.99 and will be available at select retail locations and online on May 13.
