I’ve been keeping my eyes on the rumoured Sprint HTC Evo Shift 4G, (aka Sprint Knight or Sprint Speedy.) I came within seconds of buying a Sprint Evo in November but just could not get past the size. I though, “I would love this phone if it was a little smaller, but just as fast.” Looks like HTC and Sprint heard my thoughts. This phone seems to be just that. From what I’ve read on other Blogs and Forums this is how it shapes up so far:
3.7 inch screen
Either a 800Mhz or 1Ghz processor
512Mb of storage
5MP camera with flash
Front facing camera (unknown)
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
It’s full QWERTY slide out keyboard is an added bonus. Every since I’ve gotten my HTC Hero I’ve waited for when HTC would introduce a phone with a physical keyboard. The possible launch date is January 9th, 2011 during the CES. I probably won’t get one right away. I’ll wait until it gets rooted then I’ll pick one up.
