There's been another sighting of the T-Mobile Shawdow II, and this time we have a release date to go with it, courtesy of TmoNews.

When last we saw the Shadow II, we were reporting a delay past the holidays and into the first quarter of 2009. The TmoNews post is in line with that, citing Jan. 28 as the day to mark on your calendars.

It's also looking more and more like this thing won't have T-Mo's brand of 3G out of the gate. But there should still be WiFi and T-Mobile @Home access, so that's still better than nothing for you data hounds.

The story also specs the phone with Windows Mobile 6.1, so we're still in search of the first device to launch with the fabled Windows Mobile 6.5.
