HTC Clio 100 & 200 is in fact the HTC Shift in GSM and CDMA
It seems that we have had wool pulled over our eyes, we are talking about HTC FCC filing for an HTC Clio. The versions are HTC Clio 100 and 200 which is in fact 2 versions of the HTC Shift in GSM and CDMA.
The FCC filing in fact shows a landscape oriented QWERTY slider phone that many have said was the speculated HTC Advantage/Athena, well the light has shined and FCC have finally posted some exterior photos of the HTC Clio 100 and 200 (HTC Shift).
Are we glad that we have seen this? Hell yeah of course because this means tat the HTC Shift will be hitting most national carriers in the US, the GSM version will have HSDPA and the CDMA version looks to have EVDO Rev.
