Just a couple of hours after its launch, the HTC-made Sprint EVO Shift 4G is being video-reviewed by retailer Wirefly in a close to ten minutes of footage regarding hardware, software and comparison to other devices.
There’s a general hardware tour of the freshly announced device followed by a side-by-side comparison with the keyboard-less Sprint EVO 4G as well as the Motorola Droid 2. There’s also a short software tour including a Quadrant test where the EVO Shift 4G, running Android 2.2 Froyo, scored 1,429 points, surpassing the Nexus One, Droid X and the EVO 4G. Take a look at the video below in its entirety to see the Sprint Hotspot and its settings also being mentioned:
Also, Wirefly has the device on preorder and, opposed to the $149.99 price-tag, the retailer has it available for $119.99, shipping Sunday, January 9. A new Sprint account is still required but a $30 discount makes this an attractive price.
As a reminder, the device sports a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 3.6-inch WVGA (800 x 480) screen, 2GB ROM, 512MB RAM, a Qualcomm MSM7630 800Mhz processor, five-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, microSD card slot that can take up to 32GB, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, Digital compass, G-Sensor, proximity sensor, light sensor, GPS and 3G/4G capable radio with mobile hotspot capability.
