[Full Arrive Review] The HTC Arrive is the first Windows Phone 7 device on Sprint. It is also one of the only Windows Phone 7 devices to have a QWERTY slideout keyboard. What's different about this slider is that when the keyboard is slid out, the screen will tilt up to give a better viewing angle when typing on the keyboard. Inside the Arrive is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 448MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM. The Arrive's Super LCD screen measures 3.6-inches and has a 480 x 800 WVGA resolution. It also features a five-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording with LED flash and autofocus. Read on for the latest HTC Arrive news, reviews and videos:

    Over the past couple of years Sprint has had the opportunity to release some of the best smartphones available. With the launch of their WiMax network last year came the HTC EVO 4G, a monumental achievement in the US mobile industry. So it is no surprise that Sprint would release the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device, the HTC Arrive, which is essentially a slight variant of the HTC 7 Pro, now hitting Europe. Along with the debut of the Arrive also comes the first major update to Windows Phone 7 which warrants improved searching through the Marketplace and the ability to copy-and-paste. BOX ...

    As the first Windows Phone 7 device to officially have the NoDo update, the HTC Arrive also has some other pleasant surprises. In this video we go through the software of the new HTC Arrive for Sprint. The Sprint Arrive is a clear example that Microsoft does not want the operating system to be fragmented with unnecessary apps. Sprint made a wise choice by limiting the number of proprietary software titles on the Arrive. The only true Sprint title is the Sprint Zone app, which is basically an insider app that displays related news from Sprint about recommended apps and tips. Until now there ...

    Some of HTC's Windows Phone 7 devices got their taste of Microsoft's NoDo update a little ahead of schedule, as we saw ROMs leak for the HD7, Mozart, and Trophy earlier this month. Now the GSM-enabled version of the HTC 7 Pro is joining their ranks, with a NoDo ROM of its own. Popping up like the others over at the XDA-Developers forum, this ROM appears to install just the same. That means that in order to complete the flash you'll need to take advantage of a "gold card", a specially configured microSD card that will allow your HTC handset to accept system updates that don't match the ...

    As the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device becomes available we wanted to highlight some of the best hardware features of the Sprint HTC Arrive. The solid built Sprint Arrive is as alternative model of the HTC 7 Pro. Unlike the 7 Pro, this device is operating on Sprint's CDMA 800/1900 network. The Arrive has similar internal specs of most other Windows Phone 7 devices. This includes a Qualcomm 1GHz processor, an adequate amount of internal storage, a WVGA display (800 x 480 pixels), a 5MP camera with dedicated button and support for 720p video recording. All this muscle is powered by a 1500 ...

    In this video we unbox the new Sprint HTC Arrive. This is the first Windows Phone 7 device in the United States capable of operating on a CDMA network. The Arrive is a variant of the popular HTC 7 Pro that was released in Europe and other parts of the world back in January. The device feels very sturdy in hand and the innovative spring loaded Super LCD screen is a wonderful improvement over earlier HTC tilting screen devices. The box includes quite a bit of documentation, a micro USB charging/sync cable, a wall charger, and a stereo headset. The Sprint Arrive will be available on March ...

    Sprint announced the HTC Arrive, the carrier's first Windows Phone 7 -- and CDMA that is with the NoDo update -- at the end of February with a March 20 availability for $199.99. The CDMA version of the European HTC 7 Pro is up on pre-order at Wirefly for $49.99, a great price, that is with a new Sprint account. The price jumps to $489.99 without a contract which is still a good deal for HTC's slide-out QWERTY Windows Phone 7. The smartphone sports a 1GHz processor, 3.6-inch WVGA screen, five-megapixel camera, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and a 1500mAh Lithium-ion battery. Source: Wirefly ...

    Sprint released the HTC Arrive, the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 the operator will be carrying, at the end of February with a March 20, 2011 announced date for availability. For your daily dose of Rumor, the CDMA version of the HTC 7 Pro might be available in the Seattle area on March 17 according to WPCentral's sources. It's not the actual three days in advance we are interested in -- and neither should you be -- but the date itself. It wouldn't make sense to release a NoDo Windows Phone 7 on the market before the actual roll-out process begins for the other devices out there, though we've ...

    Not convinced by the image of the HTC Trophy on Verizon that popped up yesterday? As if it was answering our demands to get a closer look at it, the Trophy has made another appearance, giving us an even better opportunity to check out the phone's hardware. Windows Phone Central brings us this series of pictures, courtesy of an unnamed tipster. Although not visible in some of the renders that we came across earlier, now you can clearly see the Verizon-red hiding underneath the phone's grills. This is also our first look at a Verizon WP7 app installed on one of its phones. As we mentioned ...

    Mobile analytics provider mtiks has made some Windows Phone 7 related numbers public on its blog regarding app statistics by device, country and usage. According to the figures, the US market is the number one market for Windows Phone 7 applications with 57.3% -- which is to be expected as a home country with a vast population and two carriers to start off the platform -- followed by Germany (18.48%) and UK (7.49%). Both app number and app usage-wise, the Samsung Focus is the most popular Windows Phone 7 device followed by the HTC HD7. From a centralized point of view, the top Windows ...

    Shortly after the HTC Arrive announcement, the carrier's first Windows Phone 7, with CDMA support, Sprint has published a couple of pictures on its website featuring the device with the Games Hub in Landscape orientation. We were speculating on the odds of NoDo bringing further Landscape support to Windows Phone 7 but we were pretty much convinced that it was just a "Photoshop" error. If you head to the Sprint HTC Arrive page now -- check the source link -- you'll see that the picture has changed to better reflect reality. The Landscape oriented Xbox Live Games Hub has been replaced with ...

    If you've seen Sprint's Arrive web page you might have noticed a landscape version of the Windows Phone 7 Games hub. Is this just Photoshop trickery? We know the Sprint Arrive from HTC won't arrive until after the NoDo update is released because that's the only way you'll get CDMA support on this thing. So it is possible that Microsoft may have snuck in some more landscape orientation support into Windows Phone 7. One of our biggest complaints with the European HTC 7 Pro was its lack of landscape support in Windows Phone 7. What do you think? Source: Sprint

    The HTC 7 Pro was the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 handset we heard about with the occasion of the launch event and we know it's coming to Sprint as soon as the platform will support CDMA -- which shouldn't be long now with the HTC 7 Trophy already being FCC cleared in its CDMA Verizon shape. There is also a European iteration of the device with GSM/UMTS support we posted about yesterday. Sprint's CDMA HTC 7 Pro was caught in the wild by PhoneScoop who took a few pictures at an executive dinner during CES in Las Vegas. Nothing major is revealed, the phone looks to feature a Sprint Zone tile ...

    First time we've heard about the HTC Arrive was with the occasion of bringing you a couple of trademarks. Later it turned out that the HTC Arrive might be a Windows Phone 7 device hitting Sprint alongside a device about which only a name is known, the-called Kyocera Echo. We know Sprint is preparing an "industry first" event today -- which of course we'll be covering -- so we could be inclined to believe that a CDMA Windows Phone 7 could indeed be an industry first. In this case, could the HTC Arrive be the Sprint carrier name of the HTC 7 Pro? Sprint Reps told PhoneScoop that the 7 Pro ...

    Who better to dish on upcoming Windows Phone 7 developments than a member of the ChevronWP7 team, now Microsoft's new best friends? Rafael Rivera (the guy with the t-shirt) has tweeted that Sprint will finally be getting a WP7 smartphone of its own by this time next month, hot on the heels of Microsoft's first update for the operating system. While we've gotten a look at the HTC 7 Pro thanks to its European release, the phone's yet to come out in the States. We were hoping the handset might show up last week at Sprint's press event, but had to keep waiting a little while longer. If this ...

    Ever since this Monday, Sprint has started tweeting pieces of a puzzle with a February 24 mention which, at least according to the pieces we've got until now, lead us into believing it might actually be a Windows Phone 7 device, the Sprint 7 Pro (also rumored as the HTC Arrive). We say according to the pieces of the puzzle we've got until now because the first two tweets fall very nicely into place, indicating the upcoming phone will have hubs "for gaming, music, pictures and video". Now, we don't know of any other smartphone that has hubs, except the Windows Phone 7 (yes, we know about ...
