HTC Arrive on Sprint - Comprehensive Review by PhoneArena

Posted by Nelson Ocampo in "HTC Windows Phones" @ 11:00 AM

http://www.phonearena.com/reviews/H...e-Review_id2693

"Windows Phone 7 launched last fall, but without CDMA support a vast majority of users in the US have yet to be exposed to the complete overhaul of Windows Mobile. This drought has come to the end with the launch of the HTC Arrive for Sprint. Though this is the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 (WP7), it is middle of the pack in terms of features. That said, all WP7 devices are generously spec’d so the Arrive is hardly underpowered. Featured specs include a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a crisp 480x800 3.6” display, 16GB of storage and a 5 megapixel camera with flash capable of recording 720p HD video. The HTC Arrive also comes with the latest version of WP7, allowing users to copy and paste. Included with the Arrive you’ll get a 1500mAh battery, microUSB cable and AC wall adapter."

PhoneArena does a great job at explaining the pros and cons of the HTC Arrive. The review is very positive overall, with compliments on the phone's build quality as well as the smooth and snappy operating system.In the beginning of the review, comparisons are made the the HTC Shift because they are similar looking devices from the same manufacturer. PhoneArena concludes that while the HTC Shift is a very solid device, the build quality of the HTC Arrive is superior. The Arrive also offers a screen capable of displaying 16 million colors as opposed to the Shift's 65 thousand.Check out the link for the detailed review. Will you be picking up an Arrive?

Sprint HTC Arrive Reviewed

http://pocketnow.com/windows-phone/...c-arrive-review

The HTC Arrive is now on the market, and the reviews have rolled in from all the major tech blogs. Pocket Now recently reviewed the device and pulled no punches in giving the phone 3.5 out of 5 points. They dinged the phone for being heavy, overheating often, and having no improvements to the Chassis 1 specs. They did however like that the phone came pre-loaded with Nodo, free Telenav, and a supposedly great camera. I say "supposedly" because I have heard conflicting reports about the camera, and HTC has a history of sub-par cameras on their phones. Have any of our readers picked up the Arrive? Please leave your thoughts in the comments!

HTC Arrive For Sprint Reviewed

Matthew Miller of ZDNet generally likes the Arrive - it's a solid piece of kit marred by a few flaws, not least of which is the spotty landscape support in WP7. It seems HTC did some work on improving the keyboard, as the Arrive's impresses compared to the 7 Pro's, the Arrive's GSM cousin. The Arrive will be available for $199.99 on Sprint from March 20.

$49.99 Nets You a HTC Arrive From Wirefly

"The company has started accepting pre-orders for the HTC Arrive for just $49.99"

It looks like Wirefly is the place to go if you want to pre-order a Sprint HTC Arrive. The Arrive is Sprint's first WP7 phone and is slated to be released on March 20th. It is a CDMA device so it will come with NoDo preinstalled. The Arrive is available as a pre-order from Wirefly for $49.99 (new accounts) and $149.99 (eligible upgrades).

HTC Arrive Ships March 20th with "NoDo" and Free "Cloud" Storage

Posted by Steven McPherson in "Windows Phone News" @ 09:03 PM

Looking for a great review of the HTC Arrive? Check out the video review above provided by our friends at WireFly. The HTC Arrive looks to be a really nice device. It looks a little thicker than I would like but that is largely due to the slider keyboard and screen tilt features that the phones provides which similar to the HTC Tilt and the Tilt 2.

Sprint has done a nice job with their hub integrating Sprint TV and Radio but the one pieces that I found really interesting about this device is that it will ship with the Microsoft "NoDo" update. The Arrive will be available on the Sprint network on March 20th.

According to the reviewer the phone will also come with 25GB of "Cloud" storage. As far as I can tell this is unique to the HTC Arrive on the Windows Phone 7 platform.
