HTC Shift slightly delayed, hits the States in a month

HTC hasn't been terribly forthcoming about this, since its "official" launch date for the Shift -- at least in Europe -- was November, but we gave them a ring today and they say the UMPC should be shipping in Europe and Asia in about a week, and Stateside in about a month. Nice and vague, just like we like 'em. And sticking with that "shifting" motif, Dynamism currently has the pre-order price for a Shift import pegged at $1599, a whole $99 more than it read in August.
