Matthew MILLER teste le HTC Shift enfin final

| 0 Commentaires

Matthew MILLER a testé le HTC Shift en version finale et accessible aux USA au prix de $1499 USD sans compter l’abonnement DATA.

Cette version finale est conforme aux spécifications édictées et disposent d’un HTC SnapVue, le mode Windows Mobile accessible instantanément mais profondément remanié et apparement difficile à débrider

Une vidéo de 9 minutes est disponible et montre le produit souos toutes ses coutures.

Les spécifications de la machine testée sont les suivantes:

  • Intel Stealey A110 800 MHz processor + Little River (945GMS) + ICH7U
  • 1GB DDR2 microDIMM RAM, 64MB for SnapVUE
  • 128 MB ROM for SnapVUE
  • 1.8 inch 40GB 4200rpm hard drive with G-Sensor shock protection
  • Windows Vista Business
  • 7 inch TFT-LCD with adjustable screen angle and touch-sensitive screen, 800×480 resolution with 262k colors and landscape only orientation
  • CDMA2000 1xRTT/1xEVDO
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • 802.11 b/g WiFi
  • 2700 mAh rechargeable lithium-polymer battery
  • VGA (640×480) digital camera for video conferencing
  • Secure Digital input/output slot
  • 1 USB 2.0 port
  • VGA out connection
  • 3.5 mm stereo headset jack with microphone
  • Biometric fingerprint scanner
  • Stereo speakers

On notera l’avis très fin de l’auteur qui liste sans parti pris les très bonnes choses du produit, les bonnes chaoses, les moins bien et les choses qui sont définitivement détestables. Je retiendrais pour ma part que l’essai est loin d’être transformé et que le produit ne vaut pas le prix demandé.


  • Keyboard is best UMPC/ultra portable keyboard I have ever tried
  • Form factor is great, allows working on your lap or on an airport tray
  • Mouse/trackpad is accurate and serves as a wonderful navigation method
  • SnapVUE always-on capability is very good
  • Quick resolution, communication manager, and SnapVUE buttons rock
  • Stereo speakers rock!


  • Sprint EV-DO connectivity is a nice bonus
  • Biometric scanner offers good security
  • No bloatware loading of apps is awesome
  • Integrated Secure Digital card slot is nice (when will Apple learn this?)
  • Nice leather case included with device
  • Included USB hub and ethernet is helpful
  • Small A/C adapter is a thoughtful feature
  • Origami Experience 2.0 is useful
  • 1GB included RAM is adequate


  • Stylus is poor since it doesn’t stay extended when pulled out
  • 1024×600 software resolution is fuzzy and not good for text entry or viewing
  • Can’t remove leather case if you want to travel a bit lighter
  • Vista is too much for the device
  • No recovery CDs are included
  • No portrait mode for eBook reading, etc
  • No storage card in SnapVUE, hyperlinks go nowhere, call support appears in menus, but are not supported while text nessaging is supported
  • Skype is unusable, audio is shaky and video is virtually non-existent


  • Battery life with Vista is unacceptable for an ultra-portable
  • 40GB hard drive, 33GB showed as available and then 23GB actually available out of the box is lame
  • 800×480 default resolution on a 7 inch display is too low
  • US$1499 is too much for the device. Then adding US$60/month for Sprint data makes the cost even higher
  • Inking is virtually unusable since the display is larger and very sensittive to any pressure. No palm rejection technology is used and the slightest touch sends it off vectoring bad
