Actually this device has got GPS, and you can make phone calls with it. But only with a cooked ROM. The lack of wifi on the WinMo side is bizarre though.
Oh, and Windows 7 rund like a dream!
what is the point to have such powerful device but without build-in GPS??? people like all in one high tech high touch gadgets.
briliant piece of technology. But its a shsme it doesnt have a voice call. HTC work on this problem.
ONE MORE THING:
You don't need a cell phone service with this device because the speed of the Sprint's internet is more than fast enought for Broadband Telephone Companies such as VONAGE! ( Sprint's download speed is at least 1MB per second).
HTC SHIFT'S PROS:
- 2.0 regular USB ( you can connet: Sprint's USB modem chip, optical computer mice, and anything else you would connect to a regular PC!)
- 1 GB RAM!!!! ( just like on my 15 inch screen ACER PC)
- EXTERNAL TOUCH-SCREAN DISPLAY!
WHAT ELSE CAN YOU WISH FROM A MOBILE PC?
1) Make Calls (Vonage $33 month service can let you call to 60 countries!)
2) Store plenty of applications
3) Always cary the device with you!
This PC is AMAZING!!!!
You don't need need a regular
Cellular Carier with it.
JUST USE SPRINT'S MOBILE INTERNET ($70 month)
and Download Vonage Softphone ($33 after taxes).

Phone call with the shift is simple and easy. Just download Skype. I use my shift all the time for calls. Also, Skype to skype video calls work great. No hardware needed as the on board mic and cam do the job well.
i have this phone is all nice there only problem
it too expensive don't invest ur money
instead buy a laptop and any phone i waste 500 pounds
it exactly like laptop but too fat to fit in ur pocket
You can in fact make calls with it. But you have to do some work.
