No question, when I saw the HTC Shift announcement the first time I was thrilled by HTC's first UMPC but now I wonder if the recently announced Fujitsu (Siemens) is the better choice?
the::unwired reader Ralf just sent this photos from the WinHEC he's currently attending in L.A. and no question - both devices have their advantages:

I think everything comes down to the included WWAN options and while the Shift is announced to have GPRS/UMTS/HSDPA I haven't read a single line about WWAN functionalities of the Fujitsu (Siemens) UMPC yet. If WWAN isn't part of the pack, it's a no-go anyway.

Hi Arne,

I asked the MS Guys about the Fujitsu (Fujitsu didn't attend the WinHEC).
They told me that the Fujitsu will come with Bluetooth and WLan but no GPRS/UMTS.

Cheers,

Ralf

Hi,

I believe the FJ device has a CF slot so it'd be possible to use a CF-GPRS/EDGE card or if you live in Japan (where it will be released first) you can use a 3G CF card - Seiko VC701SI.

The alternative is to use one of the USB devices becoming incrasingly common - Huawei E220 or Bandrich C100 with USB to ExpressCard converter.

Cheers,

Rob K.
