The HTC Evo Shift 4G has been seeing a lot of leaks in the past few weeks, from accessories to blurry photos to entries in databases. Today, Sprint finally made the phone official, and announced that it would be available starting January 9th for $149.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate.
The Evo Shift 4G sports the following specs:
- Android 2.2 with HTC Sense
- Slide-out 4 row QWERTY keyboard
- 3.6" WVGA touchscreen
- Qualcomm MSM7630 800MHz processor
- 2GB ROM, 512MB RAM
- 5MP camera with single LED flash and 720p video capture
- 1500mAh battery
- 4G/3G connectivity, Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, digital compass, 3.5mm audio jack
- 2GB microSD included with support up to 32GB
The Evo Shift takes many design cues from the Evo, such as the layout and design of the buttons on the front. Interestingly, the Evo Shift 4G will be $50 less expensive than the HTC Evo 4G, which has been on the market for six months.
