We were lucky enough to get our hands on the HTC Evo Shift 4G from Sprintfor a very short period. The Shift is the successor of the HTC Evo also from Sprint. The big difference besides running on a newer version of the Android Fryo 2.2 is the Slide Out keyboard.
The HTC Evo Shift 4G has an 800 Mhz processor and with the 4G connectivity on the Sprint’s network this device will be very fast and functional. The QWERTY Slide out keyboard gives consumers now the option to choose this device over the HTC Evo 4G. Many consumers still prefer the keyboard to be part of the hardware over the on-screen keyboards.
The HTC Sense groups all the communications you have with a contact together. These communications include E-mail, text and the Friend Stream for your social media networks.
The build-in WIFI Mobile Hotspot app will allow you to connect up to 8 devices. These 8 devices will take advantage of the powerful 4G network that your HTC Evo Shift is connected to.
