Hey Look! Images of HTC Evo Shift 4G Surface… Yet Again

Hey Sprint, why don’t you do us all a favor and just announce the EVO Shift 4G?  It’s fast becoming one of the worst kept secrets in Android. Yet more photos of HTC’s next Sprint device have surfaced, showing a working version of the phone.  The 4-row QWERTY grows on us a little more each time we see it, even if it would be the 2,000th Android phone with a sliding keyboard.

As a recap, we’re expecting the HTC EVO Shift 4G to offer 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.  The phone has been spotted in Best Buy’s internal system, indicating the retail stores are gearing up for a launch in the near future.  As much as we want them to, we don’t anticipate Sprint making any noise around the phone until at least CES at the earliest.

    3.7″ screen? I’m not a huge fan of 4.3″… but why call it an Evo if it’s not?

      exactly.

      Small screen, too much dead space on the front, and uninspiring keyboard with the d-pad on the wrong side.

      Fails to impress.

    I’m not sure why this phone is called an EVO, hehe and do we know that it is going to have a 1GHZ processor, there has been lots of talk of it only being 800mhz. If it really only has 800mhz….take the EVO name away HTC!!!

      It’s 800Mhz but apparently a Second Gen Snapdragon.

      But yeah, I’ve sort of been thinking of the Evo name as being the beast of the Android phones and with dual cores coming out soon I think this one (although probably a great phone) slips below it’s name’s reputation.
