HTC Shift (Model: X9500) Specifications and information

HTC Shift alternatives
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!

HTC Shift alternatives

Toshiba Libretto W100 (W105-L251 PLW10U-00201V ), 7.0 inch, 699 grams (1.54 lbs)
A new and interesting design from Toshiba. Dual capacitative touchscreens and some well-integrated keyboard software make this a very interesting choice in the UMPC sector. Heat could be a problem and battery life with the small battery down to 2hrs. High-performance CPU should drive Windows 7 touch and muti-touch features well. Premium price.
Kohjinsha SK3 (SK3KX06GA), 7.0 inch, 720 grams (1.59 lbs)
Viliv X70 EX, 7.0 inch, 660 grams (1.46 lbs)
Samsung Q1EX, 7.0 inch, 648 grams (1.43 lbs)
Archos 7 (320GB), 7.0 inch, 640 grams (1.41 lbs)
Raon Digital Everun Note (S16S), 7.0 inch, 742 grams (1.64 lbs)
A very cheap touchscreen UMPC. 1Ghz CPU is as powerful as INtel Atom at 1.6Ghz. Battery life is quite poor but additional batteries are cheap and small. Good keyboard. Build quality not the best.
Raon Digital Everun Note (D24S), 7.0 inch, 742 grams (1.64 lbs)
This is one of the most powerful UMPCs we've ever tested. Its light enough to be used as a carry-everywhere PC solution but the small form factor does not lend itself well to long periods of work. Battery life can reduce very quickly when under heavy usage. Processing power is locked to 800Mhz when under battery power.
3K Razorbook 400, 7.0 inch, 907 grams (2 lbs)
Everex Cloudbook (CE1201V), 7.0 inch, 950 grams (2.09 lbs)
Viliv S7, 7.0 inch, 830 grams (1.83 lbs)
An attractive, highly mobile and productive form factor and feature set.
