It has been announced today that the elusive CDMA HTC 7 Pro has been made available to pre-order, making it the first Windows Phone 7 device for Sprint. The phone has been renamed to the HTC Arrive, with official availability starting on March 20.
The phone comes with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor, 5 MP 720p HD Camera and 16GB of built in memory with the option of an additional memory card. In addition to all of that, it also comes with a full QWERTY keyboard and GPS.
The HTC Arrive isn’t the first full QWERTY keyboard phone however, the Dell Venue Pro which was one of the first WP7 phones to be released came styled with a full keyboard and although the specifications of both phones are alike, the Arrive nudges ahead with double amount of internal memory over the Venue Pro.
Sprint made sure we all heard when they also announced the phone will be launching with the copy and paste update that Microsoft promised us and will sell for $199.99. Combined with the new commercials that Microsoft is planning to air, Microsoft is continuing its push for WP7.
