Wirefly unboxes the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt

Wireless retailer Wirefly has unboxed a pre-production model of the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt and posted the video on Youtube.  The phone comes in a mysterious black package that has all the traditional accouterments.  And aside from some slightly comedic difficulty getting the phone out of the box, there's some really interesting details.

HTC EVO Shift 4G gets early video hands-on by Wirefly

Wirefly 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. [youtube ZET2gMKAH2U]
