Sprint just confirmed the rumor about the HTC 7 Pro and announced that the HTC Arrive will launch on 20 March. The good news is that this new WP7 device will launch with the latest software that includes copy and paste support.

The HTC Arrive will launch with 16GB of internal memory, which is the largest capacity found in WP7 devices natively. You will be able to purchase it for $199.99 with a two-year agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate (can we please do away with these?). You can actually pre-order one today with the purchase of a $50 Sprint gift card and you will receive an appointment to pick up an HTC Arrive.

The keyboard looks to be similar to the one found on the HTC Touch Pro 2, which was the best side slide QWERTY keyboard ever made, IMHO.

    With copy & paste? Now the whiners who don't want a WP7 anyway won't have anything to whine about.

      Even though I know you?re nothing but Microsoft troll, I will ask this anyway. Why do you whine about iPhones, iPods, iPads, and Mac OS X all the time? Being that you don?t want anything but Windows, why are you always posting negative comments on every blog that contains Apple, or Android/Linux?

    Will the HTC Arrive require data plan add on like Android smartphones?

    Awesome I cant wait to upgrade my htc touch pro 2 phone for windows phone 7. Even thou i had no problem with my htc TP2 phone it great but I am just tired looking at icons and want a better User Interface and processor speed. Glad i never gotten an android or iphone those user interface are cluttered with icons and takes 3 to 4 clicks to get to an app. Totall sucks. I heard many great things of windows phone 7 and cant wait for upgrade to this phone. Also it great typing using keyboard compare to virtual keyboard like iphone or android you really cant type using that. ALso great about windows phone 7 and other windows phone always work great for business use.

      @ipadsucks <br>So you want to go from unique icons to big and bland icons? Personally I find the UI on Windows phone 7 series phones <b>ugly</b>. But that is my own personal opinion. Secondly I am not about to buy a license for Windows, just to use a phone. But if you feel it is better, then by all means spend the money. Maybe you will even find a few Zune friends to squirt ;)

  • It's about time... Verizon should carry all phones

    The version 1 Windows 7 Series phones, while not pleasing to loyal Apploids or Drapples, will be a welcome edition to stand up to the Apple/Google bigotry. I think Microsoft is doing a wonderful job supporting their developer community with new Silverlight tools and Silverlight has something Google and Apple lack... security... It's a big deal, really. Microsoft has spent a lot of time working on SOA, Cloud Computing, push-technology, etc. Time to get on board I think. Apple may make impressive looking hardware, but I have been around since before the days of the once revolutionary LISA. I think I even remember what it looked like. A BIG Mac. Or an Apple III with a GUI.

    Technology is not only ubiquitous... It's temporary...
