With the impending launch of the HTC EVO 3D, other Sprint phones in the same price point are starting to look a bit... lackluster. Fortunately, there are always killer deals out there for those looking to score a new phone without breaking the bank. This is exactly the case for the HTC EVO Shift 4G from Amazon Wireless - sign a new two-year agreement, get the phone for $40. This is a solid deal, especially when you consider that Sprint is willing to pay you if you switch before June 23rd. If you're already on Sprint, the deal is not quite as sweet: it'll set you back $99 after you re-up your contract.

Spec action:

  • 3.6 inch 480x800 TFT display
  • 1GHz single-core Snapdragon processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 5MP rear shooter with 720p video capture
  • WiMax
  • Physical, slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • Android 2.2 with HTC Sense

Okay, so it's not going to break any records - but it's still a great mid-ranger for a solid price. If this is the deal for you, head on over to Amazon Wireless and grab one.

    2 days ago I ordered the Shift 4G for $0.01 from AmazonWireless. Perhaps the price will go back down in the next few days as the 3D release date approaches?

      Oh really? Damn, that's low. The price will undoubtedly come down soon.

    I know. I was fortunate to find it. I was actually pre-ordering a 3D for myself and the Shift is for my wife. Good deal!

    I love the battery on the shift. It isn't my primary device however the device works great as a modem and I'm able to make it through a full day on one charge.
