The HTC Shadow Hotspot is a mid-grade cell-phone designed to provide more casual users a smartphone with a unique slider design. The Shadow Hotspot is offered through T-Mobile and uses the unique 5 faves design on the home screen, allowing quick access to the most frequented contacts. The Shadow Hotspot can be used both for a universal media device and/or a casual business tool; it specifically offers phone, messaging (picture, SMS, e-mail, voice, IM), media (music, video and photo playback), and business (Microsoft Pocket Office, Adobe Acrobat Reader, Voice recorder/ notes, internet explorer, Windows Mobile 6.0 OS) options.

The Shadow Hotspot device differs from the original Shadow device due to the integrated T-Mobile hotspot compatibility; which means the device does not include wi-fi support but can be connected wirelessly when users are near a T-Mobile hotspot. The HTC Shadow Hotspot includes actual device specifications such as a a large 2.6" color display (64K color), a fully backlit 20-key QWERTY keyboard, an integrated 2.0 megapixel camera, and 256MB/128MB onboard memory with an integrated microSD slot for additional storage.
