Yet another picture of the still unannounced EVO Shift 4G has been uncovered, this time with its stylish slider keyboard fully revealed in what looks to be a press-release quality action shot.


The device is likely Sprint's iteration of Verizon's also unannounced HTC Merge. I've got to say, though, that the Shift 4G looks like it received a far better treatment from HTC's design department. The blue brushed-metal around the keyboard looks great, as do the EVO 4G-style capacitive touch buttons. Verizon's space-age aluminum overtones on the Merge, while streamlined, just don't look as cool as the Shift.

But maybe that's just a matter of taste.

    Does anybody else see the "ROFL" right by the sun on the weather widget? I wonder if this image is legit?

    If it's genuine, it looks great. But, I'm happy with my Evo, and the larger 4.3" screen.

      I think it was the captor's attempt at a watermark, a hilarious one at that.

      We just had a convo about this in the AP chatroom.

      Weird, eh?

    I'm still wondering why the Knight (or whatever) has all that empty space below the capacitive buttons. The phone would look SO much more finished without that wasted space.

    Anyone know the screen size? Is it the same as the current evo?

    • Kane

      It's supposed to be 3.7", so definitely smaller than the EVO.

    They should had never added a keyboard to that phone. Just my opinion!
