T-Mo Shadow 7510 and Curve
T-Mobile on Wednesday said it has begun shipping the 2009 edition Shadow smartphone as well as the Nokia 7510 Supernova. The former is T-Mobile's new flagship Windows Mobile device and should now cost $200 with a two-year contract for its 2-megapixel camera, microSDHC storage, and Wi-Fi with support for HotSpot Calling over VoIP. It comes in two different color options can be had contract-free for $350.
The 7510 is the carrier's more feature-limited but still mid-range equivalent and comes with a similar-spec camera as well as Wi-Fi calling in its narrow clamshell shape. The handset depends on removable faceplates for custom colors and costs much less than the Shadow, selling for $50 on contract and $200 without the obligation.
T-Mobile has also set a final release date and price for its version of the BlackBerry Curve 8900. RIM's latest smartphone will arrive on February 11th and will cost $200 US on a two-year plan for its 480x360 display, GPS, and Wi-Fi with HotSpot Calling. Electronista has already published a full review of the new BlackBerry, which is similar to the Bold for AT&T and drops 3G in return for a lower price and a smaller body.
