First look at the HTC Shift

Well the news seems to be all over the web today that the lucky fella, Hugo Ortega, from Uber Tablet, has managed to get his hands on the new HTC Shift.

The HTC Shift heralds HTC’s entry in to the UMPC market. But HTC aren’t content to bring out a basic device, the HTC Shift sports some unique features, such as a dual operating system. It runs Windows Mobile 6 AND Windows Vista. Windows Mobile 6 offers over 5 days battery life whereas using Vista drains the battery in around 3 hours. This goes to prove how power hungry Vista is!.

A Tilt-controlled touchscreen (similar to the Advantage) and a SIM card socket offering HSDPA connectivity are also part of the generous spec.

Hugo seems suitably impressed with his:

In summary I would have to say that this is one of the BEST Ultra Mobile PC I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. If I were a manufacturer of a UMPC, or with a UMPC about to hit the market, then I would be shaking in my boots given what The HTC Shift is capable of. “I put my order down right away!”

HTC Shift specification:

  • Windows Vista Business (3 hrs battery)
  • Intel Santa Rosa A110 Processor
  • 1GB DDR2 RAM
  • 40GB HDD
  • HSDPA (Data only) ready
  • Web Cam
  • Biometrics security
  • Windows Pocket PC (over 5 days battery life when used exclusively)
