  • HTC EVO Shift 4G's slimmed down features allow for a much more aggressive price point that will bring the power of the Sprint 4G Network to the masses.

  • HTC EVO Shift 4G is an Android-powered smartphone with a slideout full QWERTY keyboard. HTC EVO Shift 4G is using the latest generation and more powerful architecture of the Snapdragon Qualcomm processor, running at 800MHz.  As improvements to processors are made, better performance is achieved, which allows comparable performance to earlier versions of the Snapdragon processor that runs at 1GHz.

  • HTC EVO Shift 4G specs are virtually identical to its competitors, yet HTC EVO Shift 4G is available at an incredibly aggressive price point.

  • HTC EVO Shift 4G offers more navigation options than its contemporaries. It features a full touchscreen with pinch-to-zoom capabilities, a slideout full QWERTY keyboard and a D-pad on the keyboard for easy navigation when the keyboard is in use.

  • HTC EVO Shift 4G is not EVO 2. It is designed to complement the award-winning HTC EVO™ 4G and build upon the EVO brand as the next in line for the EVO family, which allows Sprint to reach an affordable price point. Staying below the $200 price point helps expand the EVO brand to a broader swath of the U.S. population.

  • Sprint offers our customers a variety of form factors, features and price points to choose from based on how they use their device, what they do most often and how much they are willing to pay.

  • Since Sprint introduced 4G in 2008, we have announced 17 4G capable devices – the largest selection over any U.S. competitor. Sprint offers nearly a dozen 4G devices – 3 phones: HTC EVO™ 4G, Samsung Epic™ 4G and HTC EVO Shift 4G, Overdrive™ 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot by Sierra Wireless, and an embedded 4G notebook and 4G netbook and will add MiFi 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot by Novatel this February. No other carrier offers as many 4G-capable devices as Sprint.

  • Experience: Sprint offers a proven 4G experience compared to other national wireless carriers. Today Sprint covers 71 markets and we’ll continue to expand across the U.S.

  • Value: Among the top four national carriers, only Sprint offers unlimited 4G plans, at a simple, affordable price.

  • Network: Sprint has more spectrum than any other national carrier for rolling out 4G. What does this mean? The Sprint 4G network will continue to offer you a strong, fast, dependable 4G experience even when the network has millions more users.
