HTC EVO Shift 4G gets official, but do you care?

Evo-shift-4g Sprint formally announced the HTC EVO Shift 4G yesterday and it's pretty much exactly what all of the previous leaks and rumors suggested it would be: Android 2.2, 3.6-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, 800MHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear camera, 720p HD video recording, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 3G, 4G, $150 on contract, available January 9th.

And that about does it. A fine phone, sure, but a bit of a letdown in the context of being the "next EVO," don't you think? I don't doubt that an "EVO 2" is in the works that actually raises the bar that our EVO has put in place, but there's no sign of it just yet.

I don't plan to cover the EVO Shift 4G here at G&E due to lack of interest, but since it bears the EVO name and will be released in a matter of days, I had to acknowledge it one last time.

Crossing my fingers that the next addition to what is now an EVO family will be truly worthy of its name!
