[Full 7 Pro Review] Released January 2011, the HTC 7 Pro is one of the only Windows Phone 7 devices to feature a full QWERTY slideout keyboard.

Its 3.6-inch Super LCD display has a WVGA 480 x 800 resolution. Inside the HTC 7 Pro smartphone is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 448MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM. It also features a five-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording and LED flash with autofocus. Read on for the latest HTC 7 Pro news, reviews and videos:

    Yes, the day has come: Sprint has released the first Windows Phone 7 handset and the first ever CDMA Windows Phone 7 handset, the HTC Arrive, also known as the HTC 7 Pro in Europe in the GSM variant.

    Even if you are not a Windows Phone 7 user, you most probably learned by now that Microsoft has started pushing out a first Windows Phone 7 update, a prerequisite if you will for the upcoming NoDo to be out in March. On the same note, you probably also heard that there were some issues involved and Microsoft has made its stance public on the first ever Windows Phone 7 patch roll-out process. According to Microsoft, 90% of the people who actually got the update notification and started the process have managed to finalize it with success. 90% is a good number if you refer to nine people out ...

    The HTC 7 Pro that we've got is an unlocked European version with only HTC's branding. That means there aren't any carrier-specific apps that were added to the device, and you only get the HTC customizations and bundled apps. You'll notice in the 7 Pro that HTC actually added their own custom "htc" theme accent color. It's close to the other greens already available, but definitely slightly different. Of course, you get some custom HTC ringtones as well, and a number of HTC's special bundled apps and live tiles. You'll see the HTC Hub right away on the Start screen. You also get the image ...

    Next up, we've got our hardware tour of the HTC 7 Pro. In terms of internals, it's got all of the usual suspects; 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 576 Mb of RAM, 512Mb ROM, 8 GB internal storage, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, Assisted GPS, etc. It's also got a 5 Megapixel camera with LED flash, 1500 mAh battery, and 3.6" LCD screen. The big thing about the HTC 7 Pro is the keyboard though. It's got one of the best-designed easiest to use mobile device keyboards ever made. In the video below, you'll see a little bit about how it compares to the other best-designed mobile device keyboard; the HTC ...

    Remember that HTC 7 Pro that was floating around a while back, but certainly wasn't released back when all the other Windows Phone 7's came out? We just got one and we're going to unbox it. This is the European GSM version and you can get it from Clove.co.uk. Of course it's only got the European 3G UMTS bands, so if you're in the U.S.A. like me, you're only going to get EDGE speeds. That's okay though, 'cause check out that keyboard and spring-loaded tilting screen! What do you think so far? Stay tuned for more about this great hardware design and what kind of software ...

    The HTC 7 Pro has been announced since day one, that is with the occasion of the Windows Phone 7 launch event, as being a CDMA phone that will (sometime) arrive to Sprint exclusively. Back in December we saw the first confirmation of a European GSM variant of the phone which was then filmed later on. Not much later the first pictures of the original Sprint variant surfaced and now we can witness the unboxing of the European HTC 7 Pro (though not in a final, retail packaging). Everyone compares the handset with the HTC Touch Pro2 and even more, everybody is expecting the Taiwanese company's ...

    Have you unlocked your HTC WP7 device using ChevronWP7 and found it re-locked after syncing with Zune? XDA user thesecondsfade at has an interesting thread going about keeping your HTC WP7 device from locking itself after using the ChevronWP7 app to unlock. This program uses some of the same methods that the ChevronWP7 custom ringtone manager uses to add ringtones to your device. Rather than add ringtones however, it accomplishes this goal by using TouchXplorer to copy a provisioning XML, or "ProvXML" file to the device. The ProvXML is named CustClear.xml, and is loaded by running HTC ...

    The HTC 7 Pro seems finally ready to make its retail debut, as German carrier O2 will start selling the Windows Phone 7 handset next week. Last month we heard that Europe would first see the 7 Pro sometime this month, but we had been left hanging as to exactly when the smartphone would first be available. Now O2's tweeted that German WP7 fans can pick up the model next week in any of its retail locations. Putting €29 down, and then paying €22 a month for the next two years will make you the proud owner of an HTC 7 Pro, which after working out the installment plan math and converting to ...

    We know that CDMA-compatible Windows Phone 7 smartphones are being manufactured, but so far there hasn't been much indication as to just when carriers will start selling those models. It still leaves us with a big release window, but now we have some confirmation straight from Redmond that both Sprint and Verizon will have WP7 phones by June 30. This claim comes from Microsoft Mobile Communications director Aaron Woodman. Clarifying statements made by Steve Ballmer during the Microsoft CES event, Woodman narrowed down when we could expect to see these CDMA WP7 devices, like the HTC 7 Pro. ...

    The HTC 7 Pro was the first CDMA based Windows Phone 7 device that we've been hearing about since October, but it hasn't appeared yet. It turns out there's also going to be a GSM/UMTS version, and both will sport what looks like the excellent slide-out keyboard that we're familiar with from the HTC Touch Pro 2. Windows Phone MVP Arne Hess has posted a video tour of the device over on theunwired.net and you'll get to see the interesting new screen tilting mechanism among other things. If you have trouble viewing the video above, be sure to check out the original on theunwired.net Source: ...

    We've known since the October 11th Windows Phone 7 device launch that the HTC 7 Pro QWERTY slider would be hitting Europe in GSM form sometime early next year, and now o2 Germany has told us to expect the handset as early as next month. The carrier has posted a landing page for the 3.6-inch WVGA device allowing customers to reserve their units, specifying January as the anticipated month of availability. No pricing was given. Also coming to Sprint in a CDMA embodiment (WiMax support is still unknown), the 7 Pro will be just one of three Windows Phone 7 devices with physical QWERTY ...

    Recently a photo of a GSM version of the 7 Pro showed up on TheUnwired, granting hope to the many GSM subscribers that were hoping to get their hands on the svelte Touch Pro2-like slider, which runs on Windows Phone 7. Now, said GSM subscribers can feel more confident that the 7 Pro GSM will come to fruition as HTC has posted a specification page on their website showing the new device. Sure enough, the 3G bands are 900/2100, meaning that USA users won't be able to get high speed data on the device. But hey, EDGE data isn't so bad, is it? Despite the page being live, HTC hasn't officially ...

    Back when the current crop of Windows Phone 7 devices were announced, we were all drooling over that HTC 7 Pro that was announced to be coming to Sprint in 2011. Arne Hess has recently tweeted a picture of the HTC 7 Pro in GSM form (as opposed to Sprint's CDMA). This GSM version will likely be available on a variety of European 3G networks. The HTC 7 Pro looks like a great successor to the successful HTC Touch Pro 2 from 2009. That Touch Pro 2 keyboard was the best mobile device keyboard ever, and having that on Windows Phone 7 is sure to be pretty awesome. Now all of you international GSM ...

    The CDMA Windows Phone 7 launch saga continues, as a new, unnamed source has stepped forward to confirm a January 2011 launch window for Sprint and Verizon. According to Neowin, a trusted source claims that we can finally expect Windows Phone 7s on both CDMA carriers next month. Of course, this lines up nicely with a recent rumor stating that the HTC Trophy will be heading to Verizon at the start of the new year, as well as the leaked pamphlet to Microsoft employees. Sprint's plans have been kept relatively quiet, although they did tease us with an unfinished product back in October. ...
