HTC Shift And Advantage

HTC has be coming up with a lot of good products over the past year and now these two UMPCs are about to be released with some really interesting features. Where do you draw the line between a really smart phone or a really small laptop, but this is bound to attract certain types of customers. I think HTC makes some really interesting products, and they do pack some punch for their size.

    i played around for one day with the HTC Advantage here in Kuwait, and let me tell you: its a man’s phone, and the keyboard snaps magnetically… amazing engineering.

    yeah, you have to start wearing baggies or taking a bag to put it somewhere

  2. AngelOfDeth: They did a very good job with it! I think you have to carry a small bag to carry it, its not something you can put in a pocket! lol!
