The first full keyboard shot of the HTC EVO Shift 4G has appeared and it’s looking a lot like the keyboard we’ve seen on the HTC Merge, only with d-pad replacing directional keys.  The phone is also sporting a protective case, so we aren’t seeing the device as we’d like to, but this is the first real clear image we’ve come across of Sprint’s next 4G Android entry.  What we know from previous spec leaks is that the Shift 4G will have a fairly small screen at 3.7″, will run Android 2.2, 512MB of RAM, and the same 800MHz processor seen on the G2.  It’s not a bad looking phone, but that screen size kills it for me.

Your thoughts?
