Rogers bringing HTC Shift to Canada, GPS support coming

Rogers Wireless announced today that they will be selling the HTC Shift in Canada, starting immediately. At $1,599 with a three year contract, it doesn’t come cheap, but this thing is a beast. You can check out a review of the GSM version’s CDMA brother over at Crunchgear.

In an additional announcement that was oddly obscured within the availability announcement, HTC and Rogers announced that they will be pushing a software update to customers within three months which will enable GPS connectivity and Telenav navigation. No word yet if the update will be made available for Shift owners outside of the Rogers network.
