Even before CTIA really got started HTC was announcing new devices!
The HTC Shift is a ‘shift’ (excuse the pun) from HTC into the Ultra Mobile PC (UMPC) market.
Available later this year in the US the Shift is a Vista Ready device that has a 7-inch widescreen touch display, a 30 GB hard drive and a slide-open QWERTY keyboard.
Shift is slightly bigger than the mini-laptop offerings from OQO and FlipStart but a whole lot smaller than standard or sub-compact laptops you’re familiar with.
The Shift isn’t lacking for connectivity with support for 3G tri-band UMTS/HSDPA, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity as standard.
It also has an inbuilt bio-metric fingerprint reader.
HTC also announced a Windows Mobile 6 version of the HTC Advantage which has similar connectivity to the Shift but has a 6GB Hard Drive in it along with 256MB ROM and 128MB RAM.
The screen is slightly smaller at 5″.
