[Full 7 Pro Review] Released January 2011, the HTC 7 Pro is one of the only Windows Phone 7 devices to feature a full QWERTY slideout keyboard. What's different about this slider is that when the keyboard is slid out, the screen will tilt up to give a better viewing angle when typing on the keyboard. Its 3.6-inch Super LCD display has a WVGA 480 x 800 resolution. Inside the HTC 7 Pro smartphone is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 448MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM. It also features a five-megapixel camera capable of 720p HD video recording and LED flash with autofocus. Read on for the latest HTC 7 Pro news, reviews and videos:

    The HTC 7 Pro is known as the HTC Arrive in the US thanks to Sprint -- as well as its CDMA support -- and the device looks to be landing soon at Cellular South together with the HTC Desire II -- basically the Desire S -- and the Wildifre S. The information comes from a screen grab of what looks to be the carrier's system in which the three devices are listed. Calling the Desire S the Desire II is nothing out of the ordinary -- just remember the HTC Incredible S is called the Incredible II with Verizon -- which makes us wonder why the Wildfire S remained non-renamed. A bigger -- and ...

    Up until now, the updates we've been seeing for Windows Phone 7 (or not seeing, for those still awaiting NoDo) have been from Microsoft and have eventually made their way to smartphones from all WP7 manufacturers. HTC may be about to step away from the pack, as there are reports right now of an update that's specific to only HTC models, currently going out to phones. There isn't any information available yet as to just what the update contains, but multiple users have reported receiving notification that it's available. Don't get too alarmed that we're looking at the start of Windows Phone ...

    While Microsoft has yet to open Windows Phone 7's compass API to app developers, handset manufacturers have access to more open programming tools. This allows HTC to release the first WP7 magnetic compass app with the HTC Arrive. The app was simultaneously introduced to the marketplace and it was quickly discovered to be compatible with other HTC WP7 devices. The app prompts you to wave your phone in a figure-eight to calibrate the sensor, then overlays a compass on a map of your current location. The map allows you to select a destination for walking directions, and rotates according to ...

    Microsoft has finally started to roll-out its first major Windows Phone 7 update a couple of hours ago but it might take over a week (or two) for the refresh to reach you if you have a carrier branded device. Chris Walsh, member of the ChevronWP7 team has posted a workaround on its blog letting carrier-branded HTC users emulate a non-branded Windows Phone 7 in order to apply the update immediately. The procedure "un-brands" the HTC device and tricks the system into believing it is carrier independent and good to go for the update. Please note that the hack is for HTC devices only and is an ...

    Some of HTC's Windows Phone 7 devices got their taste of Microsoft's NoDo update a little ahead of schedule, as we saw ROMs leak for the HD7, Mozart, and Trophy earlier this month. Now the GSM-enabled version of the HTC 7 Pro is joining their ranks, with a NoDo ROM of its own. Popping up like the others over at the XDA-Developers forum, this ROM appears to install just the same. That means that in order to complete the flash you'll need to take advantage of a "gold card", a specially configured microSD card that will allow your HTC handset to accept system updates that don't match the ...

    Not convinced by the image of the HTC Trophy on Verizon that popped up yesterday? As if it was answering our demands to get a closer look at it, the Trophy has made another appearance, giving us an even better opportunity to check out the phone's hardware. Windows Phone Central brings us this series of pictures, courtesy of an unnamed tipster. Although not visible in some of the renders that we came across earlier, now you can clearly see the Verizon-red hiding underneath the phone's grills. This is also our first look at a Verizon WP7 app installed on one of its phones. As we mentioned ...

    Mobile analytics provider mtiks has made some Windows Phone 7 related numbers public on its blog regarding app statistics by device, country and usage. According to the figures, the US market is the number one market for Windows Phone 7 applications with 57.3% -- which is to be expected as a home country with a vast population and two carriers to start off the platform -- followed by Germany (18.48%) and UK (7.49%). Both app number and app usage-wise, the Samsung Focus is the most popular Windows Phone 7 device followed by the HTC HD7. From a centralized point of view, the top Windows ...

    Shortly after the HTC Arrive announcement, the carrier's first Windows Phone 7, with CDMA support, Sprint has published a couple of pictures on its website featuring the device with the Games Hub in Landscape orientation. We were speculating on the odds of NoDo bringing further Landscape support to Windows Phone 7 but we were pretty much convinced that it was just a "Photoshop" error. If you head to the Sprint HTC Arrive page now -- check the source link -- you'll see that the picture has changed to better reflect reality. The Landscape oriented Xbox Live Games Hub has been replaced with ...

    If you've seen Sprint's Arrive web page you might have noticed a landscape version of the Windows Phone 7 Games hub. Is this just Photoshop trickery? We know the Sprint Arrive from HTC won't arrive until after the NoDo update is released because that's the only way you'll get CDMA support on this thing. So it is possible that Microsoft may have snuck in some more landscape orientation support into Windows Phone 7. One of our biggest complaints with the European HTC 7 Pro was its lack of landscape support in Windows Phone 7. What do you think? Source: Sprint

    The HTC 7 Pro was the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 handset we heard about with the occasion of the launch event and we know it's coming to Sprint as soon as the platform will support CDMA -- which shouldn't be long now with the HTC 7 Trophy already being FCC cleared in its CDMA Verizon shape. There is also a European iteration of the device with GSM/UMTS support we posted about yesterday. Sprint's CDMA HTC 7 Pro was caught in the wild by PhoneScoop who took a few pictures at an executive dinner during CES in Las Vegas. Nothing major is revealed, the phone looks to feature a Sprint Zone tile ...

    First time we've heard about the HTC Arrive was with the occasion of bringing you a couple of trademarks. Later it turned out that the HTC Arrive might be a Windows Phone 7 device hitting Sprint alongside a device about which only a name is known, the-called Kyocera Echo. We know Sprint is preparing an "industry first" event today -- which of course we'll be covering -- so we could be inclined to believe that a CDMA Windows Phone 7 could indeed be an industry first. In this case, could the HTC Arrive be the Sprint carrier name of the HTC 7 Pro? Sprint Reps told PhoneScoop that the 7 Pro ...

    Who better to dish on upcoming Windows Phone 7 developments than a member of the ChevronWP7 team, now Microsoft's new best friends? Rafael Rivera (the guy with the t-shirt) has tweeted that Sprint will finally be getting a WP7 smartphone of its own by this time next month, hot on the heels of Microsoft's first update for the operating system. While we've gotten a look at the HTC 7 Pro thanks to its European release, the phone's yet to come out in the States. We were hoping the handset might show up last week at Sprint's press event, but had to keep waiting a little while longer. If this ...

    Ever since this Monday, Sprint has started tweeting pieces of a puzzle with a February 24 mention which, at least according to the pieces we've got until now, lead us into believing it might actually be a Windows Phone 7 device, the Sprint 7 Pro (also rumored as the HTC Arrive). We say according to the pieces of the puzzle we've got until now because the first two tweets fall very nicely into place, indicating the upcoming phone will have hubs "for gaming, music, pictures and video". Now, we don't know of any other smartphone that has hubs, except the Windows Phone 7 (yes, we know about ...

    Rafael Rivera shared some of his WP7 insider info with the world last week when he tweeted that we should expect Sprint's first Windows Phone 7 device, the HTC 7 Pro, during the first two weeks of March. Sprint may be getting ready to confirm his claims, as the company has tweeted that it has a new phone to announce this coming Thursday, as well as dropped some hints that point towards it being a WP7 model. Featuring the #comebackfeb24 hashtag, the tweets in no uncertain terms announce that Sprint will be welcoming a new phone to its lineup on Thursday. While there aren't that many ...

    So that's why HTC recently trademarked "Arrive". The first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device will be the impressive HTC 7 Pro, which we reviewed in the European flavor. It features a slick slide-out keyboard with a tilting screen, and runs with 576MB of RAM, plus a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. All the facts add up: if you go to Sprint.com/arrive, you'll see a placeholder. Also, just this week Sprint was tweeting that on February 24, they'll be releasing a new phone. Via: Engadget, BearTech
