In recent months, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and Sprint have done a pretty good job updating its smartphone lineups, but T-Mobile seems to be lagging in this area. Aside from the T-Mobile G1 and the RIM BlackBerry Pearl Flip, we haven't seen anything new and there are some aging Windows Mobile smartphones that need refreshing, namely the T-Mobile Shadow, T-Mobile Dash, and the T-Mobile Wing. Well, it looks like at least one of those devices will soon have a replacement.

Phone Scoop spotted the T-Mobile Shadow II on FCC's Web site Tuesday, complete with specifications and a draft user manual. As expected, the Shadow II gets updated with Windows Mobile 6.1 and has a faster processor. The smartphone also sports rounded edges but keeps the slide-out keyboard and 2.6-inch, nontouch QVGA display. Other features include integrated Wi-Fi, a 2-megapixel camera, a microSD expansion slot, quad-band world roaming, and possible support for T-Mobile's HotSpot@Home service. No official word yet on availability or pricing.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
