My twitterstream is full of my friend’s bitching about all the problems they’re having activating their shiny new iPhones 3Gs. I have to admit there is a small, evil, envious part of me that is glad their nerdvana has been delayed a few hours. The truth be told, I’d love to get my grubby paws on an the new iPhone — but I’m going the route of getting the First generation model off of craigslist for cheap. I figure by next week we’ll be able to pick up a ton of 8GB iPhones for about $200 then, 15 minutes later it’ll be jailbroken and sitting next to my SideKick LX and my Daxian x999+ that I got last week.
Just read this news article about the SideKick LX:
… the update adds two major capabilities: video record, play, and share; and support for stereo Bluetooth headsets and file transfers. You’ll also get some smaller but equally useful features, including an alarm clock, an integrated spell-checker, advanced instant-messaging functions
Holy crap. Video is cool and all (read: PORN!) but I’m most excited about stereo bluetooth! I am wondering what “advanced instant-messaging functions” is all about though.
While on the outside I am seated calmly at my desk in suburban Rockville MD, on the inside I am jumping on my chair a-la Tom Cruise in Oprah’s studio.
UPDATE: I found this full list of Official Sidekick LX Over-the-Air Update Notes here.
