juz got verbal confirmation fm htc taiwan tat tis fone supports normal voice calls + video calls + internet calls! great news, seems like i'm more determine 2 get it tis time!
the only reason why the shift is not in stores is that there is a prob with the WI-FI, but my question is can you upgrade the HDD as 30Gb is so small can the SHIFT take a 120GB?
Very good machine, but dear friends, I'm not using QWERTY keypad, and haven't intention to do that...because touch screen is what I need.
Currently I'm using MDA Pro and my dream is new one, similar to HTC Shift.
Without QWERTY keypad, I think is possibility to do smaller and not so heavy HTC...
Could be similar to Iphone. Could be an excellent ...mobile phone & Pocket PC...
Thanks & good luck
I really love HTC, and that having been said i work in a shop that sells mobile phones so i work with every tipe of phone there is. I've never worked with a SHIFT though and can some one tell me what the battery life is on it, aswell as how is the OS
I have an htc shift, 60gb, and using the other os on it, the one except vista, i spoke to my friend on the phone. Its not really a miniUSB port, its anormal one u would find on a pc, so i managed to plug in jacks and a microphone through the USB port and i could speak+i can make sms too.
Why HTC didn't make this one with phone function. This would make the item perfect as we don't need to carry too many gadgets while we travel.
guys this is not a cell phone though u can send sms & mms , making calls is not possible. Can compare this to a mini laptop wid usb will have to use a sim card with 3G network services, in short this is a gadget u can carry as ur office in ur pocket, not sure about the pricing but as an HTC product shoul suit middle budget, still to launch so not sure about bugs specially the hdd part having a 30 gb so might be slower than normal though it promises a 1 gb ram so wait n watch can be worth a buy
This is not a phone. According to HTC, this a mobile computer capable of connecting to the Internet using 3G networks with a USIM/SIM card, or WIFI. It can also send/receive SMS, but it is not possible to make regular phone calls through a cellular network -GSM/3G/UTMS etc.
It's not actually a phone... if you read the review at coolsmartphone.com, it seems unable to make calls. it is a UMPC.
Welll.... I can see HTC Shift a good start to reduce prices of notebooks and have a good advantage to have all-in-one as phone, PC with brandwith and many other things.... coming to Brasil, I will be to purchase!!!
Congratulations for HTC!!
It's 800gms of weight. Who the hell is going to use the CELFON of this weight. And the price is 1,500 US$. I would rather go for Fujitsu very compact laptop
