"It's official, T-Mobile's Sidekick 4G arrives on April 20," T-Mobile tweeted this morning. The G2x, meanwhile, will be available online on April 15 and in stores on April 20, T-Mobile also tweeted. It will sell for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year contract.
T-Mobile confirmed plans for the Samsung Sidekick 4G back in January, and provided more details last month. It features a 3.5-inch, 800-by-480 screen and is based on a heavily customized Android 2.2.1 and Samsung's TouchWiz. The screen slides up with a click to reveal the 5-row QWERTY keyboard.
Signeo's Soul by Ludacris series headphones are slated for release this May, the company said Wednesday. There are five headphones in the series, three over-ear and two in-ear headphones with prices ranging from $300 for the high-end SL300 to $69 for the entry-level SL49.
The SL49 in-ear headphones are your average sub-$100 cans. Priced at $69, the SL49 offers high-definition quality audio and has a tangle-resistant cable. Also included are three extra ear tips: small, medium, and large for an ideal fit. For $99 the SL99 offer nearly identical features as the SL49s with the exception of the construction of the ear buds, which are bigger.
For those who prefer over-ear headphones, Signeo and Ludacris offer three different models. The SL100, which retail for $149, are the smallest of the over-ear headphones and come in two different colors, with red/black and blue/black tones. All are compatible with iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, and iPods, and they include standard and iPhone detachable cords with an in-line remote. The detachable cords are compatible with most devices with 1/8 or 1/4 headphone jack. For an additional $50, the SL150 offers the same features as the SL100 but are bulkier with bigger ear cups and come in two-toned black/white and white/black.
Nintendo is keeping the hits coming with their announcement that the long-awaited Wii Fit will be launching here in North America on May 19. The game, which comes packaged with the Wii Balance Board, will be sold for $89.99 - about 1/3 the price of the Wii console itself.

If you are one of the first 1,000 to pre-order the game at the Nintendo World Store in midtown Manhattan between April 18-20, you even get a free Wii Fit T-shirt. Here’s to fanboys playing balancing games in the hopes of getting in better shape!
