HTC EVO Shift 4G

We when saw the HTC A7373 leak yesterday, we were bemoaning the fact that we had yet to see the HTC EVO Shift 4G's keyboard.  A poster over at Sprint Users has changed that, though, leaking an image of the EVO Shift with its keyboard out for all to see.  The keys looks nicely spaced and a little flat, and there's also that nice little trackpad hiding in the lower right corner.  Unfortunately, there also seems to be a case on the device, preventing us from getting a good look at the EVO Shift's body.  One more quick note: many believe the handset in the photo is a dummy unit with a Photoshopped display, so don't look too much into the screen (also, the "ROFL" you see above the sun is the name of the user that leaked the photo).

It's tough to get an idea of just how good (or bad) the EVO Shift 4G's keyboard will be with just one image, but I like the inclusion of the trackpad.  It looks big enough to still be useful, but not so big that it could get in the way.  We'll reserve judgment on the rest of the 'board until we can get some hands-on time with it, which could be as soon as January 9th.  So, are any of you sold on the WiMAX-capable EVO Shift 4G now that we've finally gotten to see what its physical QWERTY looks like?
