Sprint and HTC today announced the Arrive (formerly the HTC 7 Pro), the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device to be sold in the U.S. The Arrive differs a bit from other WP7 devices in that it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that can also tilt up for a better viewing angle. The Arrive features all the same user interface and software tools that are available on other WP7 devices, including the Marketplace, Bing Search, Zune, and Microsoft Office integration. It has a 5 megapixel camera with flash, autofocus and 720p HD video capture; and stereo Bluetooth 2.1 EDR, Wi-Fi and GPS. The Arrive has a 3.6-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, and it is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon processor. It has 16GB of built-in storage, and it has access to another 25GB of data storage in the cloud. It will be available starting March 20 for $199.99 after $100 mail-in rebate with a new contract.

So Sad...

Although HTC makes great pieces of hardware, it's a shame to see them tainted with the abomination of redmond

Eh?
Have you tried WM7 ???

Price Complaints?

Are people seriously complaining about the price of this phone being $200 after MIR? Does anyone remember that the pocket pc, mogul, touchpro, and touchpro 2 used to be $300 after the mail in rebates?

World Phone? No

Crying or Very sad

Sprint missed the change to make this a World Phone (with GSM support).

I will have to keep my Touch Pro 2.
The TP2 has GSM support? I didn't know that.

Very Nice

I have been a perpetual HTC user for many years. Even before they were considered "Cool". My HTC Pro2 was a work horse. If the build quality is as good as the Pro2, I feel coupled with the new Win7, this will make a great universal handset for anyone.
