Shadow arrives on T-Mobile

Gizmodo is reporting that the Shadow hits stores Wednesday for $200 with voice-T-Mobile_Shadow plan or $150 with $20-per-month unlimited data plan. (Both require two year contracts.) With it, T-Mobile and HTC have done the impossible: they have made Windows Mobile look good. Great even.

Like other WM6 devices including Sprint’s recently launched HTC Touch and Verizon’s Motorola Q9m, it has an interface skin that shields the user from the immediate effects of the Windows Mobile UI. But unlike those other two, this one goes a little deeper, letting you do quite a bit without ever seeing Windows Mobile.

Best of all, it manages this feat of user-friendliness without a touchscreen, just a comfortable click wheel. I’m a fan of the beautiful 2.6″ screen as well, and in this case the BB Pearl-style QWERTY keypad/numpad worked great combined with solid predictive typing software.

Check out Gizmodo to read more about this device and see a whole bunch of pics.
