Not that big of a secret but finally made official at the stroke of midnight, T-Mobile’s Sidekick line-up finally gets a much needed refresh. It’s been covered a bunch before but here are the major selling points (or just random lines of text you can ignore):

  • A stunning 3.2″ 854×480 resolution Sharp F-WVGA screen
  • Integrated Facebook MySpace and Twitter (finally!)
  • GPS support! Live Search is now GPS-powered, too
  • 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with improved video capabilities
  • Microsoft Exchange support
  • T-Mobile 3G/HSDPA
  • Other really cool stuff you don’t know about

The new Sidekick LX will go on sale May 13th nationwide for $199 on a two year agreement. There are two color choices, the first being carbon and second is orchid which is after the break! Anyone interested?
