The HTC Arrive features a durable design with a responsive QWERTY keyboard and a tilting screen. It's the first Windows Phone 7 device to ship with Microsoft's cut-and-paste feature.
Not 4G compatible, Mediocre image quality
A bit thick at .61 inches, Buttons feel oddly sized and a bit strangely placed, Windows Phone 7 feels like it hasn’t been finely tuned yet, Single rearfacing mediocre camera
Windows Phone 7 still lacking some key features.
Mediocre display, Windows Phone 7 still behind competition, Not a global phone
Windows Phone 7 doesn't seem ready, Thick and heavy, No 4G cellular data
Camera could be better, Multimedia sync didn’t work for us with no option to manually manage the device, WP7 has a lot of catching up to do with Android and iOS
Copy and paste is a hassle, Keyboard keys could be bigger.
No 4G. Many screens don't work in landscape mode. So-so camera. Some audio won't play over Bluetooth headsets.
The HTC Arrive's heavy and bulky body will weigh some people down, and it requires some pressure to slide open the keyboard. Its camera could be better, and we were hoping for 4G WiMax support.

The headphone jack and power button are on the top edge of the phone, above the display. The volume button is on the left side, as is fairly standard these days, though I was disappointed by how...80

When it comes to pulling the trigger, there are some things you should consider. The selection of Windows Phone 7 apps are still minimal compared to the competition. When smart phones such as the Motorola Atrix 4G or HTC’s own EVO 3D sport dual...-

And now, to close out the week, we’ve got a look at another relatively recent model from the folks out at HTC, the HTC Arrive. It’s a robust piece of hardware, possibly too much so for some, so keep that in mind when you go hands on with...80

After having used the Arrive for a few days, we think you could make a convincing argument that it's the best Windows Phone 7 device currently available. Problem is, that's still not saying much when you look at what's currently out there....70
