Will this LG device be next in the T-Mobile Shadow lineup?

Summary: Arne Hess has been busy digging through the FCC site and found that the LG KS20 Windows Mobile Professional device may be coming to the US in 2008. I saw the LG KS20 at Mobius a couple of weeks ago and thought it had a great form factor for a touch-screen device. According to the FCC details GSM/EDGE at the 850 and 1900 MHz frequencies are supported, but there were no specifics on UMTS or HSDPA. It does have Bluetooth and WiFi as well. These wireless options makes me wonder if this could be the next device in the T-Mobile Shadow lineup.

When the T-Mobile Shadow Windows Mobile Smartphone (see my first impressions) it was passed along that this was the first device in the Shadow lineup. I think it makes perfect sense that another device in the Shadow group would be a touch-screen device and with the 1900 MHz band and integrated WiFi, with no stated HSDPA/UMTS at this time, T-Mobile would be the preferred carrier for the device. Maybe it will be known as the T-Mobile Shadow Pro or something. We'll have to wait until 2008 to see who picks up this compact touch-screen device.
