Cell Phones and Technology on The CW's New 90210

Sidekick LX: A Star on the New 90210

Bada da da DA da da da da da Wa wa waa wee wah. . . get it?! It's the theme for 90210! Not the old Beverly Hills, 90210 of my young years, but the brand spankin' new 90210 that premiered last night. Truthfully, I tuned in to see Kelly Taylor and Brenda Walsh confront each other about Dylan McKay in their thirties, but I was equally intrigued with the new younguns, sure to challenge my teen drama TV cravings for Gossip Girl.

These new characters are certainly as techie — I was pleased to see Shenae Grimes's character pull out a Sidekick LX to read a text, since I like to think of Sidekicks as the smartphone for serious text messagers. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of geeky teens on the show!

Is the new Sidekick any good? I love text messaging and I am pretty fast but the Razr and Rirz keyboards are no good for texting.
