    Detailed images of HTC's EVO Shift 4G were just released on HTC's Facebook page. If you don't already know, the EVO Shift 4G is a qwerty-slider version of the EVO, albeit with a smaller screen. Specs are reportedly include an 800MHz processor, which makes many people think this device is more closely related to the T-Mobile G2 (plus WiMax) than the large-screened EVO.

    HTC is showing off its actual 4G-enabled Android-powered device line-up in the current issue of the Rolling Stone magazine where, besides the T-Mobile G2 and the just announced Sprint EVO Shift 4G, we meet the Verizon Thunderbolt and the AT&T Inspire 4G. We have previously met the HTC Thunderbolt (aka Incredible HD or Mecha) featuring a huge 4.3-inch display and LTE capable radio to fit Verizon's 4G LTE high speed data network. The HTC Inspire 4G first popped up when we brought you the news of the manufacturer filing for a trademark on the name. We hinted that it will most probably refer ...

    Sprint has made the HTC EVO Shift 4G official as the QWERTY Android smartphone -- subject to many recent leaks and rumors -- will be available starting January 9. Pretty much like the RadioShack rumor implied, the device will be available starting this Sunday and will go for $149.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate and activation on a new two-year service agreement plus a data plan with the required $10 Premium Data Add-On. According to its dedicated webpage, 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, ...

    Turns out Walmart had at least one spec wrong on its dedicated HTC EVO Shift 4G page as the camera on the device, at least according to the official packaging -- and we'll trust this one -- is of five-megapixels and not eight, as per Walmart's listing. Engadget's got a couple of pictures of the device which looks ready for prime time and judging by the packaging, we should see this one go on sale any time now. The Sprint EVO 4G's QWERTY enabled sibling also sports a smaller display (3.6-inch versus 4.3-inch) besides the lower megapixel count (five on the EVO Shift, eight on the EVO) and ...

    There are several things we need to take into consideration here: first of all, we first heard about the HTC Knight coming to Sprint roughly a month ago; then the HTC Knight (aka HTC Speedy) was first referred to as the HTC Speedy in a context in which a battery cover accessory indicated a possible January 6, 2011 launch; last but not least, we heard HTC filed for trademark for the naming "HTC EVO Shift 4G" (after a similar trademark filing for "HTC EVO 4G Shift"). Now that we've put the pieces together, Engadget's tipster is certain that the trademark filing for "HTC EVO Shift 4G" ...

    We've been following the HTC Knight / EVO Shift 4G for some time, and now it looks like the Sprint-bound, Desire Z-esque handset will be available from Best Buy for just $150 on two-year contract. This according to a supposedly leaked screenshot published by Android Police, which lists the 4G QWERTY slider at $550 retail, but doesn't reveal when the big box retailer plans to begin selling the device. Those Sprint customers looking to pick up a Shift 4G as part of a contract renewal will also apparently pay the same $150 as new customers. We've heard that the newest EVO will pack the same ...

    As the release of HTC's EVO Shift 4G on Sprint nears, some of the lingering questions we've had about the handset are starting to be answered. It definitely looks like the "EVO Shift 4G" name has stuck, we learned what the phone will likely sell for, and now we're hearing that the rumored release date for the device will be January 9. The first accessories for the phone have started pouring into retail stores, confirming the EVO Shift 4G name. Since accessories are of no use without the phones to go with them, a release is likely imminent. The timing of the arrival of these accessories ...

    We already had strong hints indicating that the upcoming HTC Evo Shift 4G will be released on January 9 and that the handset will go for around $150 but thanks to a RadioShack ad listing the smartphone, we get another confirmation. To be more specific, the price will be $149.99 with a two-year agreement, falling pretty nice into place with the BestBuy price of $150 with the same conditions -- and a $449.99 price without a contract. The date remains January 9, 2011, that is one and a half weeks from now but there are no other details given out -- not that we'd need any with all the rumors ...

    Whatever you want to call it, the HTC Knight/Speedy/EVO 4G Shift now has some up-close photographs of it available, thanks to a tipster sending them in to phoneArena. Just as we'd heard, the phone is a QWERTY slider, and a compact one at that. Sadly, no pics are available of the FCC sticker or anything else that would help us nail down just what hardware this is; in addition to the many possible names, we've seen multiple ID codes used to refer to the smartphone. The source for these pictures claims the EVO Shift 4G, as he calls it, is running at 800MHz. If this is indeed a WiMAX-enabled ...

    We saw the HTC Knight picture with rumors pointing towards Sprint and after trademark filing, we hinted that the Knight might be Sprint's EVO Shift 4G as it last week passed FCC with CDMA and WiMAX. The device goes by the names of HTC Knight, EVO Shift 4G and HTC PG06100 and some more technical details leaked according to which, similar to the T-Mobile G2, will sport either an 800Mhz or a 1Ghz Dual Core Snapdragon processor (different sources), 512MB RAM, 3.7-inch WVGA screen, either a 5 or an 8-megapixel camera (again, different sources) as well as a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Now, will ...

    We posted about HTC filing for trademark on "HTC EVO Shift 4G" denomination (after a similar trademark filing for "HTC EVO 4G Shift") and we also asked questions whether the HTC Speedy/Knight is the new EVO Shift 4G or not. Looks like an HTC device supporting CDMA and WiMAX just hit FCC with model number PG06100 and judging by the technologies supported it could be heading for Sprint, in which case it might as well be the HTC EVO Shift 4G. All this is supposition based on previous rumors so feel free to let us know of your thoughts in the comments below. Update: A bit of rumored specs for ...
