Rumor: HTC Arrive is WP7 Handset, Joining Kyocera Echo on Sprint

Based on how HTC filed its trademark paperwork, we’ve been leaning towards the just-revealed HTC Arrive as being some sort of Sense-like software, whether for smartphones or future tablets. While it still remains to be seen what HTC will do with the name, an anonymous tipster has told Engadget that the Arrive is most definitely a smartphone, specifically a Windows Phone 7 device, and that it will be carried by Sprint.

Sadly, we don’t have anything more to go on than that un-backed-up claim and an image of the Arrive’s logo. Without more evidence one way or the other, it’s premature to make the call as to what Arrive will become, but now you can throw “WP7 smartphone” onto the short list of possibilities.

In addition to the HTC Arrive supposedly going to Sprint, the rumor’s source names the Kyocera Echo as joining it. As with the HTC, this phone doesn’t exist as more than a name and a logo right now, so you’re going to have to use your imagination. There’s some speculation that the Echo will be an Android device, but the source didn’t comment either way. We’ll keep you updated on both the Kyocera and the HTC as new information arrives (no pun intended).
