    Why would you do that? What if the shift never gets the updates. Like 3.0 or 3.1 and so on.
    3.0 needs a 1ghz to run 3.0

    The hacking developing community is where me and dex get updates so no worries there , besides the the fact that this at 800mhz is more power the the evo at 1ghz.

    I might sell my evo for 300 and grab this for 150. Hmm, decisions.

    And btw, google has never said its going to put processor requirements on the updates. Its purely rumor.

    That makes no sense considering the 800mhz proc in this(if it's the same as the G2) is better than the 1ghz proc in the Evo.

    It all boils down to what you want the shift will be nice but I'm willing to bet that we will see an evo replacement and it will make the shift feel like a joke. The shift will most likely get 3.0 who knows about the evo

    That 1GHZ krap was a rumor...

    obviously if HTC puts out a Phone like the G2 that has a processor which Runs Circles around my EVO *Thx for stealing my thunder igotsanevo4g* Gingerbread and Future Releases dont require that... Its recommended... Not Needed...

    I'll keep the EVO. No need to step down and use a physical plastic keyboard that just adds more bulk to the phone. Plus those keyboard phones seem to be aimed at teenagers.

    i think i like the shift regardless of the keyboard for the screen size. if the z and g2 are any indication, it won't add that much bulk and you don't have to use it. plus i mean its kind of silly to talk about bulk when you own the second biggest phone out there. the evo is hard to use its so big.

    Personally I like the Keyboard regardless if its aimed at teens

    using swype is not nearly as quick as physical keyboard... I love my Evo but i need Function

    I think the Keyboard will free me from my BB obsession at long last

    Honestly, I want the keyboard for games. I want to load this up with an emulator and old school SNES games.

    There's no way I'm giving up my screen real estate. It's early and I have no doubt there will be something bigger and badder on Sprint by this summer.

    see now i just came over from BB to android about 4 days ago...ive wanted the EVO since it was announced and now im pretty nervous about the EVO in 4 months being old news. I wouldnt want the SHIFT cause i dont want a slide out qwerty. so i guess ill stick with the EVO

    I have no doubt the Evo 2 or whatever will come out this summer sometime but I don't think the Evo will be old news. There are a lot of people buying phones like the Optimus or Transform right now and they are going to be using them for 1-2 years+ so the Evo will be fine.

    Lol, I use to say the same thing about my palm pre. Now I have an open mind to all devices. However, the shift hasn't impress me yet. Waiting for the prize fight on both phones.

    Ps. My vote goes for the EVO. Yea!!!!

    I'm sticking with the Evo. I hate slide out keyboards and all that they drive me insane. Plus I've fallen madly in love with this beastly phone.

    Would definitely make sense at some point. Seems to be the one thing sprint needs now is a slab phone with decent specs and a smaller screen.

    Also people (myself included) who like to email from their phone. I rarely send emails from my Hero, but I never thought twice about it when I had my Curve.

    Although now that I have Swype, I don't miss my physical keyboard as much!

    But I agree, if you don't text or email a lot, physical keyboard is likely not as high on your priorities.

    when it comes down to it... I dont use my EVO like I should

    the lack of Physical Keyboard stops me from Txting / Emailing

    Hence the need to retain my blackberry...

    Yea Im that guy... The one with 2 phones at all times
