It’s not the Dream, but HTC’s Origami 2.0 coming Monday

It’s not getting the attention of the HTC “Dream” phone being developed with Google’s new mobile platform, but the company’s new “Shift” looks pretty nifty as well.

The Shift is also a real product, going on sale Monday for $1,499, although it’s more pocketable computer than computerish phone. Here are the stats:

— 7″ touch sensitive ‘slide-n-tilt’ screen.

— Windows Vista Business edition.

— 40-gigabyte hard drive.

— Light weight of 1.8 pounds.

— 802.11b/g Wi-Fi connectivity.

— High-speed data connectivity with CDMA-EVDO service through Sprint

— Bluetooth 2.0

Here’s the HTC Shift site with more info.
