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 creating WinMo7 they placed themselves at a huge disadvantage by having done this. I say this having been a Windows Mobile user for years and years.

Don't jump at it, do your research, and wait for the next model or at the very least the next release/update for WinMo7.
