HTC EVO Shift 4G launching January 9th

-The HTC EVO Shift 4G / HTC Knight / HTC Speedy, depending on your rumored name preference, is actually Sprint’s HTC Desire Z iteration, and there’s a new clear image of the phone circulating the web.

Sprint's new flagship EVO Shift 4G by HTC might be in stores January 9th

The first thing you’ll notice is its four-line QWERTY keypad. The image shows the phone sitting in a protective case that adds some bulk, however, but essentially it’s a EVO 4G with a sliding QWERTY.  It is also rumored to have a release date of January 9th.   This falls in line with Sprint’s tendency to launch new devices on Sundays.  Should see this announced at CES 2011.
