It's only been a couple weeks since the Windows Vista-capable HTC Shift UMPC was just released in the US and it's already getting an EV-DO version for you to hook up to Verizon or Sprint (theoretically). LaptopMag's review of it mirrors what we've seen in European reviews of the device (it's been out there for a few months): it's got a cramped keyboard, slightly slow CPU, short battery life and weak Wi-Fi.
