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.

HTC Pro 7 Reviewed

"The HTC 7 Pro is a little delayed for some tastes - while it's still the first in the UK to offer Windows Phone 7 with a full QWERTY keyboard, it's still months behind the HTC HD7 and Samsung Omnia 7. However, the 7 Pro comes with some cheeky little extras over the standard Windows Phone 7 offering, taking Microsoft's mobile OS to the next level."

I hesitate to call this a review as it's so brief that you barely get a feel for the device. Having said that, Gareth cuts right down to the meat of matter - this baby's got copy and paste right out of the box, which raises some interesting questions regarding what's holding up the NoDo update for everybody else. On the flip side, the keyboard's apparently below HTC's usual standards, which makes the trade-off of having it against the extra weight you have to carry less appealing.

HTC 7 Pro On Pre-Order At UK's Clove

It's almost here! UK vendor Clove Technology has the 7 Pro on pre-order at a price of £360 ex-VAT, with a free BT headset thrown in to the bargain. Unlocked and with 8GB storage, a 5MP camera and (best of all) 5-row QWERTY keyboard, the 7 Pro is a nice addition to HTC's WP7 offerings.

Mobinnova Remains Tight-Lipped on New Device

You've seen the Mobinnova ICE before. Now catch a glimpse of the company's upcoming device (translated version). Specs-wise, it packs a 480 x 800 touch screen and a slide-out, four-row QWERTY keyboard. It also runs Windows Mobile 6.5. Unfortunately, everything else is a mystery. What would make it a perfect device for you? Sound off in this thread.

HTC Patent Shows Off New Slider Concept

The concept of an integrated number keypad and QWERTY keyboard is neat, although I'm not sure if the design is a winner. The device seems a little long, but probably can't be much longer than existing Pocket PCs (or should I say, Windows Mobile Professional devices) with slide-out QWERTY keyboards. And the diagonal-sliding display? Let's hope it manages to stay securely in place even after months of use. Your thoughts on this one?
