Q. Hey man, I just wanted to thank you for all your great videos that has helped me alot.
That being said I have a question to ask you, DO you know if it has been confirmed about the new sidekick Gekko/Aspen coming out on July?  Is there any difference between the Lx to the Gekko/Aspen?  And also is there a difference with the new Tony Hawk SK and the LX coming out in mid July?  Do you know where I can get a Black Sidekick Lx?

Thank you for all your help!!!!!!!!

A. Nothing's been confirmed by T-Mobile, but it seems *very* likely that the new SK will be out this summer, and most likely in late July - I keep hearing the 27th.  It sounds like the new SK will have features and specs very similar to the LX, and a body/design somewhat similar to the Sidekick iD, with replaceable plastic bumpers and such.  Looks like a somewhat redesigned/updated user interface could be in the works, too.  This is all based on rumor & things I've heard and read, and none of this is confirmed - just to be clear.

The Tony Hawk SK is actually out now, though.  It's an LX with a limited edition housing/external design - the difference between the Tony Hawk and LX will be in the physical/external casing, and not the specs or features.

Hope that helps, and thanks for watching the videos.
