HTC Shift Review
With the world’s first real Ultra Mobile PC, the HTC Shift you get a complete mobile office communication.
Bear in mind that it is not a mobile phone. You can only call with this device if you install Skype or any similar application on it. But you can send SMS and do other basic functions.
The smartphone HTC Shift has a powerful processor to ensure a smooth operation of these technologies. In fact, this device is based on a good Intel Ultra Mobile platform (UMP) and is powered by processors derived from Intel Dothan 800 MHz and equipped with a 7-inch touchscreen (800 x 480 pixels), which slides over the keypad QWERTY, sliding forward and upward.
The user can use this smartphone as a GSM phone with support for GPRS and EDGE cellular networks built, and will boast a wide range of wireless connections from the wireless 802.11b / g Bluetooth. Can also be optionally equipped with a 3G module.
Two Operating Systems
HTC Shift is the first mobile device that will finally be able to work with two different operating systems: in fact it can interact with both Windows Vista and Windows Mobile 6 Professional. This amazing feature has led to the need for very specific hardware configuration: The HTC Shift has, in fact, 64MB RAM and 128MB of ROM (Read Only Memory, a type of memory that only allows the operation of reading data ) dedicated to Windows Mobile, and 1GB of memory and a hard disk 30GB or 40GB capacity, to ensure the functioning of Windows Vista.
Unbelievable but true.

But if you consider the technical features that this mobile pc has in it, the dimensions are very small and the price, although not for everyone, it is justified to match, what this phone can offer. The product is a true jewel of technology just as the newest and the best bluetooth showerhead.
