You guys don't understand that it has 1,2MP VIDEOCALL camera, which is far superiour than any CIF (288x352)/0.1MP right now on the market. I just hope the Shift will have GPS too..
seems like they' ve thought about everything but a GPS... why is that there can't be a complete phone after all? they just make it perfect, put all in one and forget about one little detail...in this case is not so litle, is a GPS which became very handy lately, at least from my point of view...I need a gps so I bought an hp 6915, works great. I admire this one as well but the fact that has no GPS it's a great drawback ! PLEASE put a GPS on so I can buy it !!!
It is really a very nice phone
I will purchase it soon but the main drawback is only its camera.
Very strongly I believe that this piece would be unique and buy at first sight. But camera???? Huh...... If I am gonna spend a whole lot of price and get camera even lower then an ordinary china make celfon. Camera must be improved before it is launched or otherwise it will be available at lower price within a week (just like Apple I-Phone)
if we look to this handset, it is the only set which everybody wants to use in life.
as by using this phone u will never wish to have any laptop or comp.. So, in my opinion its the best
according to my understanding, this gadget should be the most sexiest piece ever lunched in the market but very seriously speaking the camera has to he updated with somewhat with 6 -7mp or else, there is a chances of going flop.
Well, what should i say? Excellent palm-sized phone and pc, but camera should be upgrated, including tv-out, fm, etc. What's more, dateline to release is unexpectedly too long. Wanna buy at first sight!!! hurry to deliver to the market.
this phone doesnt have a normal speaker so u can only tok using a wired handsfree
Have this device USB port??? it is usefull to install my modem USB :-P
Its a great thing, that lags GPS, a good 6-8M pixel camera, Infrared, flash, and supercapacitor/ultracapacitor as a battery.
With these addins, it'll be the best companion of a software professional on the go also for day to day life. I would also love if HTC releases a "Linux" version.
Overall, its a GREAT achievement.
Keep it up! :-)
that's not even a phone, it's a tablet PC with GSM support ... but it's one hell of a good system though, light-weight for a tablet, small , with alot of great features, the price will be the factor upon which i'll decide whether to like this thing or not, cuz there are alot of cool tablets out there for reasonable prices, and even better capabilities.
htc is taiwan base company...the company behind dopod and imate...before they market their product htc is a component supplier to imate and dopod...
Someone has figured out how to combine a Phone and a PC!
It's about time!
Now if they would just release it in the US already!
3rd quarter is almost here maybe when the time comes that Shift is out Nokia will come out with the same specs and cheaper

Boy, the current techonology doesnt allow so many features cramped into a small device. If u willing to pay 1 billion, I can make one with wide screen + 12mp + MS VIsta business + 1TB HDD + qwerty keyboard + 7.1 ch audio system + GPS + HSPDA + WLAN + 512 Video memory + Core duo 2 2GHz + etc
