According to repotsl, Radio Shack has leaked details and a launch date for a "HTC EVO Shift 4G," the sequel to the HTC EVO 4G phone that saved Sprint. Previously leaked details about the phone point to an actually slower and smaller model than the EVO 4G, this time with a slide-out keyboard.
"Its 800Mhz processor and 3.6-inch screen (down from 4.3 inches and 1Ghz) are reminiscent of the T-Mobile G2 and HTC Desire Z, and the price certainly reflects the change; Sprint will be offering this phone for $149 on a 2-year contract, as opposed to $200 for the EVO 4G."
Radio Shack's circular has Jan'9th as the release date, which makes a lot of sense given that CES 2011 is happening the week before.
