HTC introduces HTC Shift UMPC to European market
HTC Corp. have announced the availability of the HTC Shift, combining the power of Windows Vista and Microsoft’s new Origami Experience 2.0 with always-connected 3G/HSDPA connectivity that features true push email with up to 3 days of battery life.

Microsoft Origami Experience 2.0 enables improved access and consumption of content through the addition of a new finger-friendly browser, RSS Reader and media player. It also includes Origami Now which gives users one-touch access to information, including e-mail, calendar, weather and to-do lists on one screen that changes according to the time, the day and even their current location.

“Bringing the new version of Origami Experience together with the HTC Shift provides an improved and more natural mobile computer experience. I think that users will really enjoy the updated Web experience that utilizes finger touch navigation,” said Peter Chou, president and CEO, HTC Corp. “The HTC Shift has led to a new experience for customers wanting an always-on and always connected mobile computer packed with the features and functionalities they expect from a notebook.

“The HTC Shift is the first mobile computer to combine the power of Windows Vista and Origami Experience 2.0 in a sleek design that integrates 3G connectivity and a sliding keyboard,” said Bill Mitchell, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Windows PC|3 Division. “Microsoft is pleased to be working with HTC and we look forward to continuing our strong legacy of innovative smartphones and now mobile computers.”

The HTC Shift provides all the power, functionality and connectivity the busy professional needs in a sleek design that is half the size and a fraction of the weight of standard notebooks.

The HTC Shift is the first device to feature HTC's new SnapVUE technology that provides instant access to emails, calendar, SMS messages and contacts, without the need to fully boot up the device helping conserve power and extend battery life.

Weighing just 800g and equipped with a 7" touch sensitive 'slide-n-tilt' screen, the HTC Shift is similar in size to a couple of DVD cases and comes with the Windows Vista Business edition and a 40 GB hard drive.

Packed with advanced connectivity, the HTC Shift features high-speed global connectivity through with Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA and, Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi.

HTC is making the HTC Shift available now through Telefonica in Spain, Orange in the UK and will soon be available through TIM in Italy and in specialized retailers across Europe for EUR 1199.
