Reader Cody Blotske tipped me to a notification he received from Dynamism that the retailer is accepting pre-orders for the HTC Shift for $1,499.  I headed over to their site and sure enough they have it up already.  I find it a bit strange that neither HTC nor Dynamism mention the dual processor nature of the Shift.  Is it possible this is only one configuration option?  Only time will tell.

  1. Well, the name of the device alone says it should be a standard feature… I mean, “Shift”? Shift what, except between two OS:es?

    Too bad it only has the WSVGA screen. 1024×600 native would have been great. Still, considering how much I use my Pocket PC now, having one integrated in a UMPC seems mighty tempting. Maybe I’ll have to get the Shift after all.

  2. I always figured it meant you shifted it from being a notebook to a UMPC (mini-tablet) form factor…

    800×480 is probably to provide support for Windows Mobile, which I doubt supports 1024×600 but does support 800×480 (witness the toshiba g900)

  3. Kevin: I think the Windows Mobile on Shift goes only to 640×480, it does not fill the whole screen.
