New HTC Knight / EVO Shift 4G Photos Show Off World's Ugliest Phone Cases, Confirm 4G

We haven't heard much about the HTC Knight (or EVO Shift 4G, as it may be called) lately, but HTCPedia Shop recently came into possession of some photos of the device - albeit wearing some aesthetically questionable cases.

The phone itself, though, actually looks very slick. Clearly, design points were taken from the EVO 4G, which in my opinion remains the best-looking Android device on the market. As has been previously reported, the Shift 4G will be graced with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, HTC Sense, what appears to be a 3.7" screen, and Sprint's fabulous (if you live in an area with coverage) 4G - as can be seen by the WiMax logo in the pictures.

All Droids (Excluding The Pro) Now Part Of Verizon's Holiday Buy One Get One Free Offer

With the cheapest one costing $149.99, Verizon's Droids aren't exactly stocking stuffers, but at least the price comes with double the value now. That's right - the infamous BOGO (buy one, get one free) deal has now been extended to the carrier's flagship Android devices... all except the Droid Pro, that is. Additionally, the original Droid 2 is excluded from the ad despite being part of the deal, most likely because its global brethren already appears in the ad.

Sprint 4G In The San Francisco Bay Area To Launch December 28th, 2010

Along with hundreds of thousands of people inhabiting the San Francisco Bay Area, I've been waiting for the Sprint 4G launch ever since Google graciously gifted us the EVO 4G powerhouses back at the I/O conference. In fact, it was June 16th, which happens to be my birthday, when I first noticed a strong 4G signal in Mountain View, not too far from Google's own headquarters. Little did I know back then that the wait was not over, and we wouldn't be getting 4G until the very end of the year.

New Version Of MIUI ROM Now Rolling Out Over The Air, Bringing Built-In Theming, Better Folders, CPU Management, And Major Speed Increase With It

The MIUI ROM is definitely one of those things you'll either love or hate, but judging by the waves the arrival of the latest version of the mod has been causing, the community (or at least most of it) is of the former opinion. And rightly so, if you ask me - the ROM is now even faster, features user-creatable (and downloadable) themes, and pinch-to-zoom on homescreens, among many other additions.

HTC Desire Z Review Roundup: The Best Of Both Worlds In One Not-So-Light Package

EVO Shift 4G Specs Leaked, Could Be Sprint's Desire Z

XDA-developers, who originally leaked details on the phone under the codename HTC Knight, have now provided more information on this bad boy, now known as HTC EVO Shift 4G (model number PG06100). Most of these specs aren't too surprising, but do leave a lot of room for questions:

    • Android 2.2
    • Sliding QWERTY Keyboard
    • 3.7″ Screen
    • 800Mhz Processor or 1Ghz Dual Core Snapdragon according to a different source
    • 512MB RAM
    • 5 MP Camera or 8 MP according to a different source
    • Sprint 4G

    Assuming the 800 MHz processor and 5 MP camera are correct, then this is almost definitely Sprint's version of the Desire Z (the same as T-Mobile's G2).

    Sprint's HTC Knight To Be A WiMax QWERTY Slider?

    Even though it's only the third largest network in the United States, Sprint has a habit of cranking out some pretty nice Android devices. With the legacy of the EVO and Epic to live up to, the rumored HTC Knight is going to have to be something pretty special to be considered a true flagship. But will it really be the flagship we're all hoping for? Boy Genius Report got a tip today which adds further confusion to the matter.

    The Mother Of All Deals: Motorola Droid Pro, Droid X, Droid 2, And Droid Incredible On Sale For A Mere $0.01 At Amazon

    Wow... that's the only word I have to describe what Amazon Wireless pulled this morning. Amazon and Wirefly oftentimes offer killer deals compared to the carriers (like yesterday's $50 Droid Pro Wirefly deal), but this one is just ridiculous. All of the Droid phones, including the newly released Droid Pro, are exactly 1 penny over at Amazon Wireless for new Verizon customers:

    In addition to the free 2-day shipping and the absence of any tax, all activation fees related to establishing a new account are waived.

    360° View Of HTC Merge Discovered On Verizon's Site, Quickly Pulled

    An Android Central forums member managed to find the 360° view Flash file for the HTC Merge, and Phil @ AC was smart enough to grab a video of it in action before it was pulled. It's nice to finally be able to see how this guy looks all the way around - a screen and keyboard shot only gets you so far, after all.

    A bit gaudy for my tastes, but I'm a simple kind of man.
