Stylish and surprisingly spritely for a Windows Vista device. This is a device that works an almost any situation; whether in a cafe, on a train or walking through a crowded street. You can turn empty minutes in to productive minutes with the Shift. HSDPA antenna sensitivity very good making it one of the best all-round mobile devices. If only it had more than 2 hours battery life though!

Product Notes
The HTC Shift contains a second processor and can operate in either Windows desktop mode or switch to a low-power, cut-down PocketPC mode. The PocketPC part is based on a 400Mhz Qualcomm cpu with 64MB of memory. Mouse pointer is actually a mouse pad. X9000 (US version) contains Sprint EVDO module, not HSDPA as in the X9500
