HTC EVO Shift 4G shows up in full glory, running HTC Sense
What could be better than a speedy 4G phone? Our guess is – its sequel. And it seems that the HTC EVO 4G, the first device running on Sprint's high-speed WiMAX data network, might get its successor in the face of the HTC EVO Shift 4G. The EVO Shift 4G, also known as the HTC Knight/Speedy was not shy in front of the camera and posed on HTCPedia's shop in a variety of cases and in a distinguishable resolution. And while the cases are already up for sale (out of stock now unfortunately), the phone has not yet arrived.

Judging from the newly leaked pictures, the device will feature the familiar HTC Sense interface and information about a smaller screen points to a more compact version of the HTC EVO 4G. The HTC EVO Shift 4G is also expected to carry Sprint's logo and run on its blazing fast WiMAX network, but the screen comes at 3.7 inches, down from the 4.3 inches on the HTC EVO 4G. Other rumored details include a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a front facing rear camera with single LED flash. (thanks, skymitch89)

The EVO Shift 4G appeared first on the XDA Developers community with a single blurry picture and has spurred a lot of talk since then. The handset is rumored to hit shelves on January 6th, so if you are waiting for a 4G phone that would better fit your pocket, the wait could only be a month.

Um...don't you mean now front facing camera?

It would be nice to see a pic that shows off the keyboard. From these pics, it doesn't look like this phone has one. I'm also wondering if it is going to have a 1st gen Snapdragon processor, like that in the Evo and HD2, or if it will have a 2nd gen Snapdragon processor, like that found in the MyTouch 4G.

the incredible HD is supposed to have LTE... so although it has no wimax, thats only because verizon wont ever offer wimax

well to all you of you who comment on this. First it is suppose to have a 1.5 ghz dual core processor by Qualcomm. The same company that made the first gen and second gen processor that you speak of. Then as for the Incredible comparison this phone blows away the incredible on both the Wimax level and processor. Oh and by the way the LTE company LEAP will be selling the product to other companys so that they will not have to build the network nationally all on there own. So the company Clearwire or the Wimax network you speak of is one of the potential buyers. So it is very likely that Sprint will later on have LTE as well as Wimax, since Clearwire is the company that provides wimax for sprint. Later.
