We’re still waiting to hear something official from Sprint about the sliding QWERTY handset, the HTC EVO Shift 4G due any day. Previously listed with a product number of A7373, the Knight/Speedy has recently been spotted in Best Buy‘s internal system with a designation of PG0610. As to the difference, if any, remains to be seen. Specs of the Sprint-branded Desire Z look pretty solid with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8-megapixel camera, a 3.7-inch Super LCD (800×480) screen, and (most likely) support for Sprint’s 4G network. Still unknown at this point are whether this will have a front-facing camera.
We’re really hoping to see this phone announced ahead of CES so we can get out grubby hands on it.
