Running on the 4G network, EVO Shift and its predecessor are both lightning fast but HTC has sacrificed a few things to bring us this slimmed-down version. The 3.6” captive-touch screen display is still large enough but trimmed down from the original EVO’s 4.3”. This sacrifice may have been made in part to accommodate a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a feature not offered on the original EVO.

wpid-sprint-logo-11

The idea from Sprint, it seems, is to start luring “traveling enterprise users away from notebooks.” By tempting them with tablets, Sprint has another way to cash in on their wireless data needs. In reference to tablets, Sprint president of business markets group Paget Alves did say that he couldn’t “think of anything that’s moved this quickly.”
