Sorry Android fans, 21 April T-Mobile event focused on Sidekick LX

I was getting all excited after reading about the upcoming T-Mobile 21 April event with just about everyone thinking it was going to be an Android launch event. I flew from Seattle to NY for one day for the G1 launch, but was not going to make the same trip for a G2 launch. Speculation then turned to a BlackBerry launch because RIM will be in London that same day for another event with T-Mobile. I received my invite today and can confirm it is a T-Mobile Sidekick Social Club event focused on the new Sidekick LX.

While maybe not as exciting for me as a new Android device, the Sidekick LX actually does look like a compelling device, especially for social media fans who use Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace to stay in touch with family and friends. I'll be getting a chance to play with the LX in a week or two and am especially interested in the social aspects, 3G support, new display, and 3.2 megapixel camera.
