HTC Shift: Vista in your pocket

The HTC Shift is more UMPC than anything else, though HTC was careful not to call it a "UMPC" specifically. The mini-laptop has a QWERTY keyboard, a 7-inch screen and a 30gb hard drive. The Shift runs Windows Vista and, of course, features WiFi connectivity in addition to tri-band UMTS/HSDPA and quad-band GSM/EDGE. Pricing is not yet available, but the device is expected to hit shelves in the U.S. and Europe in Q3. I suggest using a BlueTooth headset rather than trying to hold this thing to your ear.
