T-Mobile has added new features to its latest Sidekick model LX 2009, which are attracting attention from consumers who are deaf or hard of hearing, says a statement from Deaf411, Palisades Park, NJ, a marketing company.

Among the notable deaf-friendly features are a larger, 3.2-inch display screen and a trackball navigator that lights up to alert users of e-mail, instant messaging (IM) messages, and alerts from any one of the three social network sites: Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook.

This new model continues its messaging capabilities with multiple e-mail and IM service options, and a spacious keyboard, says the statement. An upgraded 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus and flash, YouTube Mobile access, Flash video support, and the 3G network capability are included.

Sidekick LX 2009 can be used with T-Mobile’s Unlimited data and messaging plan offered to qualified deaf and hard-of-hearing consumers. The plan covers unlimited personal e-mail, Web browsing, and text and instant messaging.
