We’ve seen snaps of Sprint’s upcoming WiMAX gadget, the EVO Shift, which is a slightly less powerful, hardware keyboard equipped spin-off of it’s larger predecessor, the EVO 4G. But Phone Arena‘s source provides out first opportunity to spy the device without a case. I’m not sure that makes much of a difference to any of you, but there you go. Along with the new photos comes information that the CPU is clocked at 800MHz, making this QWERTY mobile a competitor to T-Mobile’s G2 and Verizon’s much buzzed HTC Merge.
A CES launch is likely as Shift recently turned up in a purported Best Buy inventory database (second image below).
