HTC Shift UMPC Reviewed (Verdict: Avoid Unless You Enjoy the Plague)

Gadget Lab‘s Danny Dumas trounces the HTC Shift, which is a bit of a disappointment to me; I’d thought its form factor obviously ludicrous, but still intriguing.

WIRED Built-in CDMA WWAN radio, which lets you access Sprint’s data network when out of WiFi range. Microsoft Origami software offers a decent touchscreen experience.

TIRED Truly horrendous keyboard makes typing anything but short burst messages out of the question. Performance slower than a tortoise full of rigor mortis. No ethernet jack. One USB port. Wrapped in tacky leather. Way overpriced.

But besides that it’s great!
