T-Mo Shadow 2 Launch Leak
T-Mobile's Shadow II is on the verge of launch, a leak of final launch details at BGR would indicate. The carrier's second custom-designed Windows Mobile phone from HTC is now said to be launching in less than two weeks, shipping with the American provider on October 15th. Pricing would increase sharply from the discounted current Shadow and result in a $150 price after signing a two-year agreement.
Photos accompanying the new slip also reinforce many beliefs about the phone, which will add Wi-Fi for short-range networking and is believed to be one of the first Windows Mobile phones to support GSM-to-WiFi call bridging, which would come through the carrier's HotSpot@Home service and save call time when near wireless access points. Most other details are absent, though it should carry at least a two-megapixel camera and an updated MyFaves app for those who use T-Mobile's special calling plan.
