Picture of HTC EVO Shift 4G shows physical QWERTY, but no front facing camera
Originally called the HTC Knight, don't be alarmed by what appears to be a very thick body-it looks like someone put a case on the device before taking the picture. If indeed this model does get launched by Sprint, this will be the carrier's third 4G enabled handset, the second with a keyboard. And take a look at how spacious the QWERTY is on the HTC EVO Shift with plenty of real estate between letters.
No launch date or possible pricing has been discussed, but with T-Mobile trying to steal the 4G thunder from Sprint, and with the holiday shopping season upon us, it would behoove the pin-dropping network to get this phone released soon.

i think it's a camera there. as it is big enough. eventhough it's not officially yet...

The "camera" is the proximity sensor for the touch screen (most likely)

if the phone is black/dark grey, why is the qwerty out line blue then its out line of the outline is grey and the fnt is yellow and track pad white??? HTC could of done way better but this showed they have no taste and are lazy hopefully they didnt do the same thing to its performance

Function txt on keys in Sprint yellow.
htc has used blue backlit qwerty keyboards on the last 3 phones I have owned.
I suspect the qwerty keys are white on black and the photo lighting does not show this well [white on black is highest contrast I can think of].
I think the trackpad is useless so I have no thoughts on why it may be white...

Either way, it looks ridiculous.
If they are going to make a new Evo, it should look very similar, with no keayboard.

The R O F L on the keypad are underlined and also written on the screen of the phone. Looks like a fake or someone having fun putting two phones together to me.

yeah look at the sun on the screen. clearly says ROFL. this is not a real phone. its a fake. even if its not, what a waste of time by HTC to take am evo and slap a keyboard under it. not to mention the snap on cover.. looks like part of a droid2 to me by looking at the keyboard.
