It looks like the HTC EVO Shift 4G will be called...the HTC EVO Shift 4G. Accessories being shipped into Best Buy locations are printed with the name, so it looks like other candidates like the HTC Knight or HTC Speedy are out. Launch date is expected to be January 9th for Sprint's 4G network. As far as pricing is concerned, speculation has centered on a $150 price with a signed 2 year contract.
As we reported
, the model is a scaled down version of the HTC EVO 4G with a side sliding landscape QWERTY keyboards, a bigger battery but without the front-facing camera.
