The HTC Arrive brings the innovative and minimalistic Windows Phone 7 (WP7) operating system to Sprint (and CDMA networks) for the first time, and the spacious physical keyboard paired with solid construction and a tiltable screen earn this smartphone...

This cellphone was first known as HTC 7 Pro when I first saw it at the New York unveiling and this handset is the first foray of Sprint in to the world of Windows Phone 7. Apart from that, it is the first Windows Phone 7 on CDMA networks and also the...

Despite a list of annoyances with obvious-but-not-mandatory features that were lacking, we enjoyed using this phone. Its quirks required the same kind of patience needed to master the Windows desktop. But we grew quickly adept and found the phone did...

TweetShareEmail Announced all the way back in late 2010 (yes, it’s been awhile), the HTC Arrive made its way to Sprint late last month. Touted as the first, and currently only, Windows Phone 7 smartphone on the Sprint network, the Arrive is the...

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...

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...

The HTC Arrive is a solid smartphone and one of the few QWERTY Windows 7 phones. If you’re a Sprint customer who’s been hankering to try out Windows Phone 7, or you’re just loyal to Microsoft’s platform after years of being a...

Speaking from the same perspective, if you’ve never used Windows Phone 7 before in your life, please do yourself a favor and give it a test drive. It’s cool, it’s new, and it has, again, a lot of potential. If you’re in a...

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...

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....

The HTC Arrive is the second landscape QWERTY slider to run Windows Phone 7 (the first was the LG Quantum), but HTC’s first try at this combination of form-factor and OS. It’s also the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device, so this phone has a...

It's finally here, the very eagerly awaited HTC Arrive, the CDMA cousin to the GSM capable . The HTC Arrive also comes hailing the NoDo update which enables the paste and copy function, something sorely missed in earlier iterations of the Windows...

HTC makes great hardware. The Arrive is yet another quality example, even though it does have a couple flaws. Windows Phone 7 still isn't fully mature, but the recent copy and paste update helped quite a bit. Once the Mango update hits later this...

Callers were not impressed with the HTC Arrive, calling it “one of the lesser quality phones we’ve tested.” They complained of a lot of hollowness and a buzzing sound throughout the cal, and gave it an overall rating of 7.5/10. On our...

The HTC Arrive is definitely one of the best Windows Phone 7 devices yet. While the $199 price is a little steep, this phone stacks up well against the Samsung Focus for AT&T. The Focus has a better AMOLED display and a lighter design, but the Arrive...

In a market where smartphone sales are driven by functionality and speed. It seems odd that HTC and Sprint would release a device with one-year old hardware. That being stated, the HTC Arrive provides both. With the improvement seen in the latest...

The HTC Arrive is a solid device. While it doesn't offer much new in the way of software features, it brings WP7 to Sprint for the first time and does so with a hardware keyboard that business users might appreciate. Personally, I find the Arrive to...
