The Shadow Knows A Good Deal: HTC Shadow Smartphone (T-Mobile)
Personal Electronics buzz

Excerpt: This T-Mobile Shadow made by HTC suits me just fine. My contract was up on my cell phone with another company and after seeing the Shadow I decided to graduate into the smartphone category. It does not have all the data options as some smartphones. It does have the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0.
Conclusion: The Shadow is slim, very attractive and hip looking, something we don't often say about MS smartphones. It does a good job of bridging the gap between a sexy-looking feature phone with entertainment on board and a business-minded device.
Pros: Great looking, relatively small and well made. Great display, solid slider with hybrid keyboard. WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0 on board. Ample memory for running apps and storing programs. SDHC support.
Cons: EDGE is slow by today's standards. Battery life is short. The Neo home screen theme makes it easy to do common tasks but it's not customizable. Speakerphone is annoyingly bad.
