Deals: Get the T-Mobile G2x and Sidekick 4G for $99 and $29 respectively

Amazon seems to be set on becoming our number one place to buy Android devices. Last month we saw the company sell the Motorola Atrix 4G for a measly $49 price. Now the web giant is back for revenge, selling the T-Mobile G2x for just $99 and the just-released Sidekick 4G for $29. Like usual, you’ll have to sign a new 2-year contract with T-Mobile to be eligible for these deals.

On the T-Mobile G2x’s case, for $99 you’ll enjoy the following features:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 AP20H dual-core processor (2X 1 GHz)
  • 4G/3G capable,Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 8 GB of internal memory (ROM)
  • 32 GB of expandable memory with MicroSD card slot
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 4-inch (diagonal) wide screen
  • Corning Gorilla Glass capacitive touch screen
  • 800-by-400-pixel resolution
  • DLNA┬«┬ácompatibility with HDMI micro out
  • 1080p HD video recording
  • 8-megapixel still camera and┬á1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • LED flash and auto focus
  • Adobe Flash capable

Whew! That’s a lot. For $29, the more economical Sidekick 4G will give you all these features:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor
  • 4G/3G capable,Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • 1024 MB ROM
  • 2GB microSD, expandable up to 32GB
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 3.5-inch (480 x 800) touch screen
  • VGA front-facing camera and rear-facing 3-megapixel
  • Adobe Flash capable
  • Full keyboard (QWERTY)

Do any of these two phones with those incredibly low prices convince you to sign away two years of your life to T-Mobile? Me personally, I’m having a hard time not doing it.

    If I wasn’t already in a contract with tmobile I would think twice about signing for the G2x!

    Damn man..

    *wouldn’t think twice.

    I wish i hadn’t gotten my G2 so soon. :( :( :(

      I know how you feel. It’s pretty much impossible to buy an Android phone these days and not have one much better come out in one month.

      • http://Website geophf

        ikr? I mean, don’t get me wrong. The G2 is by no means a bad phone. It’s certainly one of the best Android phones I’ve ever owned. I just wished I had heard about the G2x around my time of purchase and I would have held off a bit before renewing my contract.

      Think of it this way, when your phone needs to be upgraded again, the G2x will look like an antique. :) I’m going to run my G2 into the ground before I consider buying anything else.

      • http://Website geophf

        Yeah, when you think about it that way, makes you feel better. :D

    The $99 for the G2X is for new activations. $150 for 2-year contract renewal.

    I think RadioShack has the G2X for $99 with a 2-year renewal right now.

  • ayocuz

    I considered a contract but my bill would’ve went from around $70 a month( even more plus with flex pay with the real unlimited data 500 whenever minutes ) to $108 unlimited everything. So I figure I’m just gonna cash out $540 and say “to hell with their contract”.

  • ayocuz

    Plus this G2x kicks ass and thats alot to say coming from a nexus one rooted and being a rom whore.

  • http://Website panic

    Lmao@tmobiles “true” unlimited plan thats capped after 2gigs, the g2x is a great phone no doubt about it but its an Android phone and what’s the use of having an android phone that’s not able to he used to its full potential all the time ? It’s like having the greatest sex of your life only to be cut off halfway without being able to finish BLUE BALLS !

    I have the Sidekick 4G, and while it’s underpowered compared to other phones out there the keyboard MORE than makes up for it. I use it as an IT professional, so my actual power needs are pretty modest compared to a multimedia rockin tween. For me it’s basically an emergency teenie tiny laptop that I can do finicky exacting remote server text based work on (like editing config files), VNC onto a client desktop to see their error messages and teleconference with Skype.

    If you strip out all the bloatware it’s actually quite fast (FYI I’m coming from an og Droid).
