Sprint to receive "many" Windows Phone 7 devices

Sprint to receive
According to an official Sprint Twitter posting, there are "many" Windows Phone 7 devices coming to the Sprint network. The initial question regarded the upcoming HTC 7 Pro for Sprint. They asked if there would be "any non-keyboard" devices coming. To which @sprint replied "Sure! Many."

We can take this to mean either "many" Windows Phone 7 devices, or "many" touchscreen-only WP7 devices. Either way, we're thrilled. And that's not to say we weren't expecting more. Microsoft's push to CDMA carriers will greatly increase their already respectable sales.

The HTC 7 Pro will be the first Windows Phone 7 device on Sprint, and should do fairly well. HTC may be excited to have a temporarily exclusive grip on the #3 carrier, as their devices on AT&T have been overshadowed by the Samsung Focus.

Many users will likely echo the concerns featured in the tweet below, as they would rather have a sleeker, more iPhone-like form factor, and sacrifice the full keyboard.

I just got the HTC Arrive and am thrilled to have a new Windows 7 phone. However, I would really prefer that a Sprint version of the Samsung Focus be released relatively soon. I prefer Samsung's phones and will be the first in line if they annouce the release soon.
