Shadowing iPhone

The Shadow looks interesting. As a former T-Mobile customer, I wish them well in their effort. Personally, I’m still planning on getting an iPhone, eventually.

This does raise a question: are all US carriers going to come out with an iPhone competitor in the next few months? My guess is yes. Shadow’s targeting a business user, more specifically Blackberry users. With the recent release of Mac OS X 10.5 (aka Leopard), there’s doubtless an iPhone update not too far off. What’s going to appear in the bottom row?

For now, being able to use any device on any network remains a pipe dream for many, at least in the US.
