Review: HTC Arrive
The HTC Arrive is a solid device. While it doesn't offer much new in the way of software features, it brings WP7 to Sprint for the first time and does so with a hardware keyboard that business users might appreciate.
Personally, I find the Arrive to be a bit bulky and heavy, and the keyboard is not among my favorite features, but the build quality is excellent, and the phone still feels good to hold and use.
The battery life, call quality, and overall performance were as good as any other device in this class, though it is a bit disappointing that Sprint and HTC didn't shoot for the moon and include WiMax.

The WP7 software, features, and tools remain really good, though short of fantastic. This platform still has a lot of maturing to do. While Microsoft has finally gotten one update out to its WP7 handsets, it needs to get new features (mobile hotspot, multitasking, etc.) on board as soon as possible.
For the Microsoft fan who happens to be a Sprint customer, there's no better (hell, there's no other) choice. The Arrive from HTC has, er, arrived with style and substance.
