Almost 150 of you have picked up a t-shirt to show your AllShadow.com love. That said, we realize that the prices we first showed you ($19.15 for the basic shirt, and $24.40 for the thick shirt) were a bit steep considering the state of the economy. So, to give you a break and give the rest of you an opportunity to grab one, we’ve reduced the prices for the shirts to $14.73 for the basic shirt and $19.75 for the thick shirt. We will hold these prices until mid February. Both shirts come in a variety of color choices. Click on for our t-shirt store!
As promised, we’re giving away a Shadow 2009, plus three AllShadow.com t-shirts to the runner-ups, for our Community Video Contest. All you have to do is post up a video to this forum thread that captures the essence of the AllShadow.com community. The most creative entries will win. The deadline is this Monday, 2 February. Good luck!
The new Shadow’s price is similar to that of the original (when it first came out). Without a contract, the new Shadow is $349.99. With a two year contract, it’s bumped down to $199.
You’ve got two choices of colors – the White Mint, shown above.
And then the Black Burgundy, which is what Mike has been filming.
As we continue to unbox the brand new Shadow 2009, you get to see the new Shadow in action against the old Shadow. Thanks to the faster processor, the new Shadow is more responsive.
Also, Mike goes on to explain his first impressions of the UMA capability, which allows you to seamlessly place calls over WiFi. More to come!
As promised, we’re breaking the new Shadow to you first! The new Shadow is here, and Mike Benton takes us through the unboxing. Press play above!
This is the Shadow 2009. Many of you have waited anxiously for this day. I know many of you are wondering how this compares to the Shadow 2008. How well does the UMA work? Is it worth an upgrade? Keep reading this review for the answers you seek. (All Pictures are linked to higher quality images)

Chuong wrote in pointing out there is a ruckus going on in the Android Market due to a MalWare app that does can erase your memory, destroy your memory card, spam your email and more. It’s called MemoryUp and a lot of users are reporting similar crimes against their G1’s. There is no need for the MemoryUp app as the Java components on Android clean up memory on their own. You are warned!
