Who has two thumbs and is holding the latest phone in Sprint's Evo line? This guy, of course. Meet the HTC Evo Shift 4G on Sprint -- with its four-row sliding keyboard, 4G high-speed data all the usual HTC goodness.
Initial impressions are pretty good. We like the 3.6-inch screen size. Not too big, not too small. The phone's a bit on the portly side, but having a 4G radio and a sliding keyboard will do that. The chrome accents on the bezel, speaker and capacitive buttons are a nice touch.
There's no front-facing camera, and no HDMI out port. We can live with that. Others might not. To each his own.
But here's the really cool thing Sprint told us -- it's time to stop thinking as the Evo 4G as just a phone, and the Shift as a follow-up. They're just the start of the Evo line. More phones are coming (and fairly soon, it sounded).
We've got a bevy of pictures and a hands-on video after the break. And while you're at it, be sure to swing by our Evo Shift 4G forums!
