HTC Shift

Key Features

  • 7-inch widescreen display
  • 30-gigabyte hard drive
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • Microsoft Vista Business OS
  • Windows Media Player 11
  • Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA
  • Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0


Other than that, this thing comes with a built-in fingerprint sensor, an integrated camera, GPS, built in speakers, mic, USB port etc.

The SHIFT comes with two processors, implying - this thing can be used as a laptop (OS Windows Vista) or as a Pocket PC (Qualcomm Processor). Looks cool for a laptop.

I doubt I would ever use this as a cell phone. It is just too huge to be a phone. Yeah sure, one could use the headset or bluetooth or whatever, but I would seriously prefer to use this as a laptop only (that's just my view)

On Vista, you can have about 3 hrs of run time (impressive, given the size) . Stand by this thing can give you up to 53 hrs (Push email enabled).

This thing looks quite impresive although a tad bit impractical. say, do you know if anyone in Kuwait's got the HTC Touch? I saw it in the UK last week and was pretty amazed with what it can do. It's got an extra sensitive touch screen a la the iPhone and I somewhow seem to prefer it to the iPhone. For now at least!!!

I am waiting for the I-phone to get better. Will wait for a bit more.

About the HTC Touch, Well I did see a few HTC models at Carrefour. No harm in giving it a shot.
