HTC Arrive  (Source: Sprint)
Arrive is the first WP7 device on the network

Sprint has announced that it is getting its first Windows Phone 7 handset. The smartphone is from HTC and is called the Arrive. The HTC Arrive comes equipped with a sliding QWERTY keyboard and will arrive in stores on March 20. 

When the keyboard slides out, the screen is angled a bit for easy use. Other than being the first Windows Phone 7 offering on the Sprint network there is nothing to write home about with this device. It has all of the features you see on other Windows Phone 7 smartphones like Xbox Live, Windows Live, Bing, and Zune. The smartphone also has Live Tiles as expected. 

It will support corporate and private email accounts and has access to Windows Phone Marketplace. Other hardware features include Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, a 3.5mm headphone port, and SES WOW HD surround sound. The rear camera is a 5MP unit with flash, autofocus, and the ability to record 720p HD video. 16GB is included and the screen is a 3.6-inch WVGA unit.

Stereo Bluetooth is supported and the phone can offer voice prompts in English and Spanish. The talk time is up to six hours with the standard 1500mAh battery. The phone runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It measures 4.63-inches x 2.32-inches x 0.61-inches and weighs 6.5-ounces.

The device will sell for $299.99 with a new contract and before a $100 mail-in rebate. Perhaps Best Buy will offer the device with an instant rebate bringing the total cost to $199 up front.
