from my, point of view, the idea of more ram vs more cpu is kind of smart. Instead of sucking more power to process more tasks per second, more memory helps keep more tasks on hand rather than lagging the whole system. It's like the way more L2 cache works on a CPU. Obviously on a much lower scale, but if you ask me, it's the best of two worlds for power consumption and multi-tasking.
Just seen the video review on Engadget.
Looks awesome - Has Qualcomm 400mhz processer, 64mb rom and WM6 Pro Plus 1Ghz processor, 1gb DDR2 ram and Vista Business running areo. This thing has 2 Processors and 2 Operating systems. 3Hrs on Vista and 5 Days on WM6 - Nice. However it does not so voice off the Qualcomm (yet).
updated info on the HTC Shift. Hugo Ortega from Gotta be mobile had a chance to a test run for the Shift. Many intresting information comfirmed. In his video he stated that the Shift runs on both Pocket Windows and Vista.
Windows Vista Business (3 hrs battery)
Intel Santa Rosa A110 Processor
1GB DDR2 RAM
HSDPA (Data only) ready
Windows Pocket PC (over 5 days battery life when used exclusively)
Qualcomm 400MHz Processor
However, I just don't understand why Shift can only be used for data. Yes, if there's voice, then many people will start useing internet voice communication instead of their network provider, but since it runs on two OS then why can't HTC make voice to work ONLY on the pocket windows side? The HTC Shift is just inches away from being the perfect mobile device for this generation, hope that they can make it work.
the phone with best feature i had ever experienced in my life
look at this video, amazing
1Gb ram with 1.2 Ghz only.....what were they thinking about when they decided on this...........!
it must be able to display to the external screen like LCD projector or TV.
if you people pay a little more attention this phone is equipt with pluetooth thechnology , so you can use hands free kits for making and receiveing calls without your face being covered !!
it's the best yet.it's like a laptop comp.i wud like to buy as soon as it comes out.how much wud it cost?
only problems r camera n gps
nice piece of tech.. but u'll be covering ur whole face when making calls. LOL
Interesting stuff, but...
How the hell are you going to keep it at your ear to talk with it?!?
Surely the big problem is the resolution, only 800x480 on a 7" screen! The Toshiba G900 has that resolution and fits in your pocket. For productivity and a decent web viewing experience it needs to be higher
I so love this phone it's a master of it's kind, and will remain for years to come. it's about 1000 gbp, which i'm gonna save up.
gawd i started crying when i saw it i can't stop thinking about the power and beauty of it..............
Get it out already! Lets see what u are made of in the flesh before some other brands (Palm Foleo?) starts riping u off.
Hi dear HTC
I always get amazed by your products but in this case i just feel sorry because of 2 important things missed in SHIFT:
1.at least 3 MP camera with flash and video light
2.GPS: we know that it's available in many little in size cheap phones now thus why not included in your elegant SHIFT
I promise that if you do this at least me and 30 of my friends (we are all IT men) will but it without even thinking.
Be always the best as you are.
