“Truly horrendous keyboard makes typing anything but short burst messages out of the question. Performance slower than a tortoise full of rigor mortis. No ethernet jack. One USB port. Wrapped in tacky leather. Way overpriced.” -Bryan Gardiner

Agreed Wired, the HTC Shift is an interesting device but since it is too big too be a cell phone, too small to be an ultra mobile PC it doesn’t really have a place in most peoples computing world.

Although I would enjoy using this, beyond using it to read RSS feeds from my couch I don’t know if I would be able to find any use for it.
