I do not own the HTC Arrive yet, but I had a chance to use one for a short time. Here are my comments on the new phone:

I just read on Microsofts website that this phone does not support ActiveSync or any other software for directly synching Microsoft Outlook with the phone. Just like Android, this phone requires that you upload all your contacts to google or bing. This is a deal breaker for me.
