First Look: T-Mobile Shadow

1:25 /

For young professionals who have outgrown their cell phones but aren't quite ready for a business-centric device, the T-Mobile Shadow offers a nice compromise.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a First Look at the T-Mobile Shadow. This actually looks like a cell phone but it's a Smartphone; it's running Windows Mobile 6 and T-Mobile is aiming this kind of at first time Smartphone users somewhere in between the Sidekick and the T-Mobile Dash users. So you've got this really nice sleek design here, it's got this beautiful screen and T-Mobile's kind of tweaked the interface so it's more fun and less business-ey. On the front you've got the navigation wheel which is new, you can also push it up and down like the traditional wheel. It's a little lose so I had a hard time using it. You can also slide this up and you get a 20-key QUERTY keyboard; it's like the short type keyboard on the Blackberries but it doesn't use the same technology. On the back you've got a two-megapixel camera. T-Mobile is advertising this more as a phone first, Smartphone so you've got My Fave so you can call your five contacts on the minute. You've also got e-mail and instant messaging as well though and like I said it's running Windows Mobile 6 so if you want you can use it to look at office documents if you're ready for that. Otherwise it's a nice quality for 150 dollars. Call quality was pretty good so if you think you're ready to make the jump from a cell phone to a Smartphone the T-Mobile Shadow is a pretty good choice. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been a First Look at the T-Mobile Shadow. ^M00:01:20 [ Music ] ^M00:01:24
