Syncing with Outlook on XP Pro AND Windows 7 desktops

I currently use an HTC Mogul which syncs with my XP Professional laptop, BUT NOT WITH my desktop at home using Windows 7.
I need a Windows phone which will sync backwards (to XP) and forwards (to Windows 7). Is this phone it?
I am getting conflicting advice on this point. Can anyone tell me definitively that this phone will do what I need it to do?

Good phone for me?

I've been due for an upgrade. Using a Palm Pre now.

I've been considering an Android phone but I really am not a "power" user. 4G is nice but we still don't have it here in Indy (supposedly there are 2 towers in town experimenting with it).

I mainly do texting, email, and mobile web. A few other apps like Pandora and The WeatherChannel.

I've never been a Microsoft fan, but this OS does look interesting to me. I like the idea of the Start Screen.
Thanks for the advice.

BIG let-down....

I thought this thing would be awesome if the top and bottom outer mesh designs were speakers

but instead there is just an "auto f-up, sit down and cover-up" back speaker

c'mon man!

When will Android be available?

Looks like an interesting phone, but it would be much more interesting if it ran Android. Anyone know when Android will be available on this phone?

lack of 'goodies'

not sure why there is no front facing camera, the HTC evo does a great job of incorporating video chat. Hopefully video chat will be incorporated into the arrive. Also it seems to lack Pandora.. again, i hope this changes.

3.6 inch screen? No 4g? No FFC? No 5-row keyboard? It seems like the phone will be obsolete by the time it comes out.

Copy and Paste is already present!

Turns out there is a feature missing from every WP7 on the market: copy and paste. Or, I should say, it's missing from every phone save one- the HTC Arrive. I was copying and pasting for days before I realized that this feature wasn't supposed to exist.

For the record, grabbing text is very intuitive and easy. Click on a word and it's highlighted in green. Drag the arrows left or right and you've copied more. An icon appears, looking like two pieces of stacked paper, which you click to copy. That's it.

Since the phone has no "menu" button to speak of, your ability to paste the copied text is reliant on the next app you open, like a note, message, or email. But sure enough, as soon as you're in a text field, that same icon appears, allo...

I'm in love.

Picked up an Arrive today. Initial impressions: quality hardware, beautiful screen, nice detail finishes (mixed materials on the back look industrial, but really cool). I've integrated with my Exchange account, Facebook, and downloaded the Twitter app, and I've begun using it as a business tool.

Downsides? I'm not an XBOX user, and the level of Zune/XBOX integration seems primed for folks who are. More to come on that, but so far it's unnecessary.

I'm really liking the onscreen keyboard, but not too pleased with the limited ringer/notification selection (reminiscent of the initial release of webOS on the Palm Pre).

The interface is slick, the sound quality is great so far, and setting it up might have even been easier than my HTC Sh...

This is a downgrade.

I would not jump on this device quite yet. Compared to what it is supposedly replacing in the Sprint line up (HTC Rhodium Touch Pro 2) outside of the OS would appear to be a hardware and feature downgrade.

In addition, this phone will require a plan upgrade if you're on an older Sprint plan or at the very least the $10 premium data add on if you already have an Everything Data or Simply Everything plan. Which is fine as long as you know what you have and what you may be giving up.

WinMo 7 is too new and lacks too many things. WinMo 6.5 was very stable and had evolved into a very workable OS especially with the HTC sense UI . It was foolish of MicroSoft to scrap WinMo 6.5 and shut out all of the developers that worked on it when creat...

Hey HTC!

Can I get this with Android 2.2 on it? Please!
The merge is a step in the right direction, but that 5 row qwerty with tilt is soooo what we need on the next HTC android. Oh, and for Verizon would be nice.

I'm actually excited...

to get my hands on one of these! I have never been a huge fan of windows, but I really like the way 7 works compared to 6.5 and below. I'll have to play with one for a while, but I'm pretty sure I'll be purchasing this device.

World Phone?

I was hoping that they would make this a world phone (with GSM support).

Looks like they left that feature off.
