HTC announces availability of the HTC Shift in the United States
HTC Corp. has announced the U.S. availability of the HTC Shift, a Ultra Mobile PC (UMCP). Merging Windows Vista and the Microsoft Origami Experience 2.0, the HTC Shift brings advanced wireless connectivity with a sleek design that is half the size and a fraction of the weight of a standard notebook.

Operating on the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network based on CDMA EVDO, the HTC Shift can leverage always-connected connectivity and features push e-mail with up to three days of battery life.

“For the first time, customers can experience an extremely small, touch-optimized PC with high speed cellular connectivity and push email. The result is an unmatched mobile computing experience,” said Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC America. “We are pleased to meet our customers’ growing mobility needs by bringing this state-of-the-art product to the United States.”

The HTC Shift features HTC's new SnapVUE™ technology, providing instant access to e-mails, calendar, SMS messages and contacts, without the need to fully boot up the device, which helps conserve power and extend battery life.

Other features include the 7" touch sensitive screen, Windows Vista Business edition, 40 GB hard drive, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi connectivity, and Bluetooth 2.0.

The HTC Shift is available for pre-order in the United States now begin shipping on Monday, 24 March.
