HTC Shift available with Rogers
HTC Shift is a UMPC, running a fully featured Windows Vista Business edition, and so it offers the functionality of a computer, but at weight of only 1.8 pounds. It employs the SnapVUE technology, which allows the user to load a basic operating system, to check emails, messages, and contacts without the need to boot the heavier Windows system, thus helping to improve the battery life. Shift features a 7” touch sensitive screen, 40 GB of storage, a full QWERTY keyboard and a touch pad. As it has a quad-band GSM and tri-band HSDPA receiver, it can work worldwide, but keep in mind that the GSM/3G connection is used for data only. However, do not expect the Shift to replace your phone, since it cannot function as such.
