HTC Shift screen resolution

James Allan Brady - Oct 9, 2007

Alright, so I doubt any of you have forgotten the HTC Shift right? Well if you have it’s the UMPC/PDA device that HTC is releasing that has a full keyboard and “Shifts” to show the keyboard and at the same time props the screen up at a viewable angle.

It also has 2 processors for two separate OS’s, Vista and some sort of proprietary low power HTC OS. Well one of the few, and I do mean few, problems with the device is the low 800×480 screen resolution.

Apparently it has some voodoo technology in it (someone performed some technomancy) that allows it to artificially up the resolution to 1024×600. Usually this type of technology really just makes the screen and picture look like crap, well, that’s apparently not the case according to a gentleman by the name of Steve “Chippy” Paine, he says it doesn’t really look all that bad.
