It was on Friday that Mobilicity announced their $50 Mail-In-Rebate offer on select devices. Good deal considering some of their handsets have already been reduced in price for the holiday season. One of those devices called the “MobiFlip” was hidden away in the fine print and now we’ve got the details for you.
As for what the MobiFlip 3G is… well it seems to be a blast from the past by being the Sidekick LX. This was originally a T-Mobile device but it’s being brought up to Canada exclusively at Mobilicity. Specs have this with a 3.2-inch display (resolution of 854×480) with a swivel form factor, full QWERTY keyboard with trackball, 3.5mm headphone jack, 3.2 megapixel camera with flash and video capabilities… we’re looking into getting the official Mobilicity specs of the device. Taking a look at this upcoming flyer it seems that the pricing will be $49.99 no-contract (after the mail-in-rebate offer). We’ve received several tips that this will be launching this week, possibly on December 20th.
