Bellevue, Wash. — Jan. 28, 2009

Today, T-Mobile USA, Inc., announced the availability of the new T-Mobile® Shadow™. Featuring a more rounded and compact design with two new color options, support for T-Mobile Unlimited HotSpot Calling, and increased processing power, the new Shadow is the perfect device for sharing life’s special moments.

Available exclusively from T-Mobile, the Shadow is designed to significantly reduce the complexity often associated with many feature-rich devices, while maintaining the powerful calling, messaging and picture-sharing capabilities people crave to keep them connected. The Shadow is powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 and is the first Windows-based phone to provide support for T-Mobile’s Unlimited HotSpot Calling service,* which provides great mobile coverage at home and unlimited nationwide calling from Wi-Fi networks, including T-Mobile HotSpot locations across the country.

With a navigation wheel, a slide-out 20-key QWERTY keypad with predictive text, and a large, vibrant screen, the Shadow was built to make popular calling, messaging and picture-sharing features quick and easy to use. The radiant display lets you view and share photos taken with the 2.0 megapixel camera, surf the Web and watch movies on the crisp QVGA display. The Wi-Fi Web browser allows you to feed your discussions in real time, while the enhanced multimedia capabilities provide an entertaining, top-screen way to share your favorite music.

“The T-Mobile Shadow provides customers with a variety of ways to easily stay connected — whether it’s calling their loved ones with one of T-Mobile’s unlimited calling services, e-mailing friends or sharing family photos,” said Travis Warren, director of device marketing, T-Mobile USA. “We’re excited to bring a new, very attractive and stylish design and two new colors to the T-Mobile Shadow lineup.”

The T-Mobile Shadow, designed and manufactured by HTC, comes ready with a more powerful processor for faster access to the information you need. The new Shadow also features a larger battery for more talk time, an improved photo album to easily view and share photos, and enhanced messaging capabilities, such as threaded short message service (SMS) and copy/paste functionality.

The T-Mobile Shadow is available in two fashionable colors, white mint and black burgundy, at select T-Mobile retail stores, partner stores and online at
