Posted by at 9:58 pm on August 10, 2008

T-Mobile USA, Inc. has added the latest edition to the Sidekick family providing customers with the opportunity to create shells for their Sidekick with the images, colors or designs they choose.   The new Sidekick will ship with two shells: black and metallic green.

A variety of pre-designed shell patterns and colors also are readily available for customers to purchase at T-Mobile retail stores or online.   Customers can also design a completely unique shell using a dedicated online Sidekick site via SkinIt at http://www.sidekickshells.com.

After uploading a personal photo or graphic design, or selecting text, shapes, icons or logos, the final design is custom-printed onto the shell, then shipped. Once the design is complete, customers can share their art in a public gallery that will be hosted on http://www.sidekick.com.
