HTC Shift available for Pre-Order

HTC announced the Shift almost one year ago to the day. If you still feel excited, the price still has not come down, despite the strong push of low-cost Linux based UMPCs.
The HTC Shift is selling for $1,499 on There is no shipping date given yet.
One of the highlights of the Shift is its Sprint EV-DO connection. Laptop Magazine has a review of the HTC Shift up and they call it the "best surfing experience of any UMPC". If HTC would offer this "experience" under $800, it would have a chance on the market.
