At A Glance

Second-generation T-Mobile Shadow adds some features and cosmetic tweaks, but is expensive for what it offers.

Manufacturer’s Description

The 2009 refresh of the T-Mobile Shadow brings some nice styling changes as well as WiFi support and an upgrade to the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system. Its 2-characters-per-key SureType QWERTY keyboard tucks safely away when not in use. With the Shadow, you can easily synch your email and calendar, and you can pound out text messages, IMs or picture messages to your friends. T-Mobile has brought us another great, multi-tasking device.
