Sprint’s HTC Knight / Evo Shift 4G shows off its keyboard

We’ve seen the HTC Evo Shift 4G (aka HTC Knight) a couple of times before, but it’s only now that we get to take a look at its sliding QWERTY keyboard, thanks to a photo that showed up over at the Sprint Users Forum.

Like in the previously-leaked images, the Evo Shift 4G appears dressed in a protective case – so in reality it’s slimmer than what we’re seeing here.

The smartphone’s keyboard has a trackpad (like the first Motorola Droid) and the keys seem a tad flat – hopefully they’re not terrible to use.

The Evo Shift 4G could be officially announced at CES 2011, on January 9, and it should run Android 2.3 Gingerbread- nevermind what the screen in the photo shows, that’s photoshopped anyway (just the screen, because the handset itself is most likely real).

    At issue is whether this handset has a forward facing camera. If it’s missing, while I’m sure it will see sales, it’s true potential will be hobbled by this GLARING omission.

    It shows a front-facing camera in the pic… it’s the little pinpoint to the left of the speaker just like on the EVO.
