Unveiled earlier already, the HTC Shift UMPC is officially coming to Orange UK which hopefully keeps some pressure on HTC to finally launch the heavily delayed Shift in open market channels as well.
Exclusive to Orange UK, the Shift packs the punch of a laptop in a smaller, lighter form factor, with full mobile data connectivity. It perfectly blends style with functionality, boasting a seven inch touch screen that smoothly slides and tilts to the perfect viewing angle, as well as a full QWERTY keyboard. The always-on "mob-top" is the perfect accessory for those that want to both work and play. Users can easily switch between Microsoft Windows Mobile and the fuller Microsoft Windows Vista mode, at the touch of a button.

Customers can always be contactable thanks to a long battery life (in Windows Mobile mode) and innovative technology which enables users to preview their text messages, E-Mails, calendar and contacts as well as providing alerts and reminders when new items arrive - even if the Shift is not switched on.

Supporting both UMTS, HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi connectivity, a first for any Ultra Mobile PC, the Shift can seamlessly move between networks, ensuring customers can access internet and E-Mails whether at home, in work or out and about. Customers who are constantly on the move can maximize their time as the Shift comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office in Vista mode enabling users to download, view and edit their Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint documents.The Shift comes with a traditional 30 GB hard disk drive and a built-in fingerprint sensor, meaning that your contacts, content and E-Mails are kept safe.

The HTC Shift will be available to buy online at and in selected Orange retail stores throughout the UK from the end of February. With a data tariff, the HTC Shift will be priced at £999, around US$ 1,950/1,330 Euro which isn't a good price at all if you keep in mind, that you can get an unbranded HTC Shift from online stores for around 1,200 Euro already (if available).
