The keyboard isn't great. The disappointment starts when you slide it open; there's no spring assist to snap it open and closed. The keys themselves are separate and raised from the surface, but their flat shape makes them surprisingly difficult to tell apart by feel.

Which style of keyboard is your favorite...

No it does not. I work for Radio Shack and have sold one to a friend of mine already. I do use the Evo and I can definitely that it doesn't suffer from the same light leak. the bottom bezel is much larger on the Shift than the Evo 4G, and I think that...
