XDA Exclusive: HTC Knight (Updated)

Yet again thanks to the vast resources of this wonderful community, we learned about the underground existence of a brand new device coming our way. This time, for Sprint and it looks like a smaller version of the EVO but with a twist because it seems that it will have a slide out screen.
