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. Power users will be happy to hear the full compliment of WinMo features are there and novices will find navigating features easier.
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.
