Picture of HTC EVO Shift 4G shows physical QWERTY, but no front facing camera

0. phoneArena posted on 11 Dec 2010, 22:43

Looking like a Sprint 4G version of the HTC Desire/G2/Merge, the HTC EVO Shift 4G offers a landscape sliding physical QWERTY keyboard but does not offer a front facing camera for video chats; when launched this will be the third 4G enabled device on the carrier's lineup...

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.
