Sprint and HTC today announced the Arrive (formerly the HTC 7 Pro), the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device to be sold in the U.S. The Arrive differs a bit from other WP7 devices in that it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that can also tilt up for a better viewing angle. The Arrive features all the same user interface and software tools that are available on other WP7 devices, including the Marketplace, Bing Search, Zune, and Microsoft Office integration. It has a 5 megapixel camera with flash, autofocus and 720p HD video capture; and stereo Bluetooth 2.1 EDR, Wi-Fi and GPS. The Arrive has a 3.6-inch display with 800 x 480 pixels, and it is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm SnapDragon processor. It has 16GB of built-in storage, and it has access to another 25GB of data storage in the cloud. It will be available starting March 20 for $199.99 after $100 mail-in rebate with a new contract.
HTC knocks out the first Windows Phone 7 handset for Sprint in the Arrive, a sideways slider that has a full QWERTY keyboard and the latest software from Microsoft. Does anything set the Arrive apart from the crop of WP7 phones?

No WiMAX? No FFC?

World Phone? No
