Just two days after I returned "Tony Hawk's Proving Ground" to GameStop because I couldn't do manuals with the Wii remote, T-Mobile showed me how lame I really am by throwing the new Sidekick LX Tony Hawk Edition in my face. The TH Edition will add video recording, Bluetooth file transfer, and stereo Bluetooth functionality to the current LX's feature set. Lucky for you LX owners, all of the new goodies will be coming to standard edition Sidekick LXs via an over the air update this Summer.
Tony Hawk's Sidekick will of course be skate-themed, and along with all kinds of skater sounds, skater images, and skater videos, "the bottom cover of the device is outfitted to resemble and feel just like the top of a skateboard, including a texture like grip-tape and eight simulated screws." Krazy.
No pricing info has been released, but T-Mobile did say that current Sidekick owners will get first crack at upgrading to the Tony Hawk Edition before it goes on sale to the rest of us soon thereafter. T-Mobile will also be sponsoring all kinds of crazy Tony Hawk stuff this summer, including a tour, a contest, and charitable work with Hawk's foundation.
