want you to love the HTC EVO Shift 4G
, and they want you to pre-order the WiMAX smartphone through them rather than direct from Sprint. The retailer has pushed out an early review
of the EVO Shift 4G, complete with a ten minute video demo comparing it to its larger predecessor.
"The bottom line is that the HTC EVO Shift combines solid hardware with a fine display and the performance benefits of Android 2.2. If the EVO 4G was too big for you, or if you wanted a physical keyboard, the EVO Shift gives you smaller size and a physical keyboard in a well-engineered package." Wirefly
It's hardly an unsurprising conclusion - we could've told you the same thing just from seeing the various leaks - but the EVO Shift 4G is still likely to make an impression on would-be EVO 4G buyers who were holding out for a keyboard. It'll go on sale from January 9 2011, priced at $150.
