Longtime Sidekick user and pro skateboarder Tony Hawk has his hands in all kinds of products these days, so why not his very own Sidekick LX? T-Mobile is making it happen with the new Tony Hawk Limited Edition Sidekick LX device, plus sponsorship support and programming for Tony Hawk's Boom Boom HuckJam 2008 North American Tour, and events benefiting the Tony Hawk Foundation which helps to promote and finance public skate parks in low-income areas.
The limited-edition Tony Hawk Sidekick LX will be available this summer from T-Mobile with a sporty skateboard themed design featuring Tony's popular hawk graphic and an exclusive video of Hawk performing skateboard tricks. In fact, this is the first Sidekick LX to ship with video record, play and share functions. Other enhancements include a better Web browsing experience, stereo Bluetooth, easier downloads, and more theme/background personalization options.
Current Sidekick owners can
upgrade to the T-Mobile Sidekick LX Tony Hawk Edition in July through
