Along with the news that the HTC Shift is going through FCC as the CLEO 100 and 200 devices (dependant on cellular radio type) JKK has posted a link to a (presumably) new e-learning tool for the HTC Shift.
It indicates that the Shift is still moving towards production but having just gone through a number of the e-learning sessions, it’s clear that SnapVue is as it was when I tested it. No new features. The battery is the same and there’s no talk of Windows XP. Only Vista. Given the huge improvement that I’m seeing on the XP-based Amtek U560 over the Vista-based Q1 Ultra (all three run on the same Intel platform) I find it very disappointing and as I said before, and this is despite Vista actually running quite well on the HTC Shift, Vista is going to be a deal-breaker for me. Or at least it would have been because I’m out of the Shift buying-zone now. It has slipped down my wishlist and I’m focusing on a MID (an Everun until the Gigabyte, LG or Digitalfriends MIDs come out) as my personal mobile device and maybe a 7″ or 8.9″ notebook if needed at a later date. I’m waiting to see if anyone brings one out with a Core 2 in it. (Yes, I’m looking carefully at the P1620)
