HtcshiftbacksideThe current (or coming soon) HTC Shift UMPC offers up wireless connectivity of the HSDPA flavor, so when Engadget found a Shift-like diagram on the FCC site of a CDMA device, it didn’t take much to put two and two together. Known in FCC-land as the CLIO200, the FCC diagram is an identical match to the on in the HTC Shift manual on Page 18 of this PDF as shown here. The tell-tale air vents gave it away since there aren’t too many phones I know of with those.This might open the market up for the Shift a little more here in the U.S., but my early opinion is that the device is a wee short from mobile device nirvana. There’s no question some folks will plunk down the cash for this well-designed device but the short battery life and 800 x 480 screen is a let-down. Then again, maybe the CLIO200 is already a next-gen shift that addresses these concerns. Check out Steve’s first impressions of the Shift, the GSM one, not the CDMA version, right here on UMPC Portal.

  1. SSomething is terribly wrong with a UMPC that only lasts for 5 minutes before needing to attach the power cable. I think it might be a battery issue with the review unit Steve got from Expansys.

    If the Shift becomes more readily available in the US I’ll probably get one. CDMA would be a plus for me. I recently recieved a Verizon Moto Q from work so I could transfer my Treo 700 personal data plan to the CDMA Shift.
