Review: HTC Arrive
SInce we last reviewed a WIndows Phone 7 device, Microsoft has released the full Mac syncing client, which makes transferring content from a Mac to a WP7 handset a pain-free experience. (WP7 has always synced well with Windows-based machines.)
The Zune player is so interactive and graphically rich that it is great to use. The media player interface itself is easy to navigate and use, and the on-screen controls make controlling your tunes easy.
As far as multitasking is concerned, tap the home button to return to the Start screen. The media player controls will float at the top of the screen for a moment before disappearing. The controls will return with a tap of the screen.

The Arrive's Zune player also offers support for podcasts, radio, and the full Marketplace for buying music.

I loaded Death Proof onto the Arrive. The movie looked and sounded great on the Arrive. I happily watched the opening sequences with the Arrive sitting on my desk, blasting it.
