HTC Corp., the world's leading provider of Microsoft® Windows Mobile® smart devices, today announced the expansion of its product portfolio to include a groundbreaking computing device that focus on providing users with the definitive mobile computer experience. The HTC Shift brings a new era in mobile computing by combining the power of Windows Vista®, 3.5G/HSDPA connectivity and always-connected push email into an innovative sliding keyboard design. The HTC Shift is the epitome of extraordinary form, and delivers unparalleled functionality in a sleek, compact design.
The HTC Shift is HTC’s first device to feature the innovative new SnapVUE™ technology. SnapVUE™ provides instant access to emails, calendar, SMS messages and contacts without the need to fully boot up the device, helping to conserve power and extend battery life.
With onboard tri-band UMTS/HSDPA and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, the HTC Shift allows users to link up to any mobile network, and enjoy high-speed internet access anywhere. With Bluetooth® 2.0 and Wi-Fi®, the Shift is also a perfect companion with most PCs, notebooks and wireless LAN networks.
Weighing in at just 800g and equipped with a 7” touch sensitive ‘slide-n-tilt’ screen, the HTC Shift also hides a full QWERTY keyboard. With up to 2 days of battery life on standby, the HTC Shift is the new way to work efficiently and effectively on the move. (Subject to operation circumstances and settings)
“The HTC Shift is changing the paradigm for how people work and communicate when they are mobile,” said Jack Tong, VP of HTC Asia. “This device bridges the gap between being mobile and being in the office, giving customers a new choice in how they work, communicate and live.”
