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...

You are a the biggest idiot I have ever heard on here. Why would anyone stay with a 6.5 phone when 7 in beta stages would beast any 6.5 device. Sounds like your stuck with your touch pro 2 for another year and being a hater. Noting you say about 6.5 would make anyone change there mind. Also there is no $10 Preium on the Arrive because this is a 3g Phone no WiMax.Dummy! Your stuck with a phone that MS does not even support anymore. Just to clear things up I am not a fanboy of sprint or WinMo. I have a Verizon iPhone and not looking to jump ship but sir you are a buffoon. Do your research and study hard next time you come on this thread. If your where on my blog we would eat your face off.

Wow, my guess is that Will Rodgers never met you.

But anyway, effective January 30, 2011 ALL PDA devices activated with Sprint will REQUIRE the $10 premium data add on this includes Palm Web OS, Instincts, WinMo, & Android Devices. The HTC Arrive will be Sprint's 1st WinMo device that will require an Everything Data or a Simply Everything plan until now WinMo devices have been immune to this requirement.

As far as no support, big deal WinMo 6.5 runs trouble free.

You have have an iPhone with VZW? This is a discussion about Sprint and an HTC Windows device.

I was simply stating that one should do their homework and survey the impact on their carriers plan before purchasing. But you, my friend, are being an unnecessary malicious...
