HTC shifts into Vista

HTC shifts into Vista.


HTC, maker of high-concept phones (excuse us, "Microsoft Windows Mobile-based smart devices"), such as the T-Mobile Dash, is bringing Windows Vista to UMPCs with the HTC Shift, announced this morning at CTIA 2007.

The company describes the device as about the size of, "a couple of DVD cases," and it sports a 7-inch wide-screen display, 30GB hard drive, and every flavor of wireless connectivity you can think of, including, "Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA, Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi."

We've already seen Windows Vista in the promising, if not entirely practical, Sony VAIO UX390 UMPC, so we're eager to see what the Shift can do to raise the bar on ultramobile PCs.

Pricing and more detailed specs (such as the CPU) are still forthcoming, but the HTC Shift will be available in the U.S. and Europe in fall 2007.
