Sprint’s HTC Knight to be called Evo Shift 4G?

Expected to be officially announced on January 6, the rumored HTC Knight / Speedy may be launched by Sprint as a successor to the Evo 4G.

According to Engadget, the upcoming smartphone could be called HTC Evo Shift 4G (HTC has already filed for this trademark).

The Evo Shift 4G should feature a 3.7 inch WVGA display, sliding QWERTY keyboard and, probably, Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Another rumor has it that Sprint may have wished to launch a Samsung smartphone that features a curved display – like the Nexus S (you may have noticed in these photos that the new Nexus is slightly curved). The problem is that Samsung was “unable to deliver the product in the volume” Sprint was asking for. This likely means the Nexus S will be the first smartphone to come with a curved display.

    Why would they do this? If they name this knight crap shift evo I’ll be very pissed. They should leave that name to a worthy successor with same size screen as evo now but better maybe slimmer and better battery. Maybe an improved kickstand. Not taking away but adding to the things that made the first evo so great.
