HTC X9500 Shift release date in November
The HTC X9500 Shift has started popping up all over the internet on European retailer sites for pre-order. Several of the sites are claiming release dates ranging from November 20th to the 29th. For those of you not familiar with the HTC Shift, it is HTC's new UMPC device which features Windows Vista as well as Windows Mobile 6 Professional. It will be the first device ever to feature both operating systems.
There is still a lot of excitement around the hTC Shift even though some recent review of the pre-production model have shown great disappointment with how WM6 runs on the device.
HTC Shift features SnapVUE™, an always-on mode that provides you instant access to critical information — including e-mail previews, local weather, calendar, and SMS — even if the device is not switched on. Push e-mail gives you instant alerts whenever you have new Outlook® e-mails. Through Wi-Fi or 3.5G high-speed connectivity, you enjoy the ultimate productivity and highest fidelity Internet experience around.
