Sprint’s HTC Speedy (which may have dropped the HTC EVO Shift 4G naming and goes by the codename HTC Knight) has surfaced in a real life photograph showing off the slide-out keyboard in its full glory but with no front facing camera after all.
We’ve seen exclusive renders taken from a leaked ROM and we couldn’t help but wonder, against all rumors, where that certain front facing camera would be and it looks like we were right as there seems to be no camera on the front of the device to support video calling. If you can nevertheless live without video calling, the Sprint version of the HTC Desire Z/T-Mobile G2 would definitely be a good addition to all those who love slide-out keyboards, whenever the carrier might decide to launch it.
And speaking of launch dates, looks like the initial rumor was just a few days off as PhoneArena posted a picture with the alleged launch dates for Sprint devices. An HTC A7373 device (most probably our HTC Speedy) is set for a Janury 9, 2011 launch.
