Sprint's HTC 7 Pro is gearing up for an official announcement this Thursday?
Sprint has been somewhat relatively low key of late with handset announcements, but if you’ve been itching to experience Windows Phone 7, then you may want to keep an eye out on Sprint’s Twitter account come Thursday.

With Windows Phone 7’s first major update scheduled to roll out some time within the first half of this year, which brings forth support for CDMA devices, it looks promising that we may finally see an official announcement regarding the HTC 7 Pro. Over in Europe, it already has started to infiltrate some markets, but we haven’t heard much about its relationship with Sprint for a while now.

Surprisingly, Sprint’s Twitter account posted a message indicating that a new handset is scheduled to be unveiled come this Thursday, February 24th. In all likelihood, it would more than likely point to the official announcement of the HTC 7 Pro – especially when this thing has been talked about since October. We’ll find out!

If this is true, then I might have to upgrade from my Samsung Intercept to it. My friend has the HTC Surround on AT&T and I played around with WP7 and I'm intrigued. I'll be keeping my eyes and ears open for this handset on Thursday.

I'm sorry but wp7 is pure trash. Those lame tiles. No screen saver, no custom intoned, no mms. Nokia made a huge mistake by not adopting android.

What, no magic act to accompany the announcement? If Sprint's next big thing is a WP7 device, they will be 2 for 2 on laying a turd. First it was the thingy with 2 screens. Now a WP7 device? Maybe they will surprise us and release the Pre 2? Got to keep moving devices for which there are almost no third party apps.

Actually, HP might do well to get off Verizon and sell the pre 3 on Sprint. (Not my idea, stole it fair and square from another posting.) And the magic trick will be to get WP7 competitive, something it has not become yet on the other carriers.

If you are considering this phone, make sure you do a thorough evaluation of how the keyboard works with WP7. It has a few hiccups. This phone is basically a EVO Shift with WP7 and a slightly different D-pad, but Android does a better implementation of the keyboard. The Touch Pro2 is a better "Pro" phone as far a function goes, until this thing gets some updates. My two cents.

Please you guys are just bitching about the phone because it has Windows in front of it and not that stupid "i". I really with Apple fans boys would shut up, the iPhone hasn't been innovative in awhile now. Oh oh a new iPhone...see this one can do everything the last version can but now I have a compass! As for there being almost no apps for it..lets look back at the start of any of them NONE OF THEM HAD MANY! Two things I'm looking forward to about this phone is it will get updates unlike Andriod, look at the Samsung Galaxy 4g it's just now getting 2.2. I'm also loving the fact that I have those "lame tiles". The only thing I hope is that it has better Exchange support.

Hey more power to you if you want a wp7 but I think it sucks. Btw just because we dont like wp7 doesn't mean were Apple annoys, if it sucks it sucks. I have a iPhone and an inspire.

So I believe the device will be called the HTC arrive because of this link below and all jokes and opinions aside each device is unique. I can honestly say that each phone operating system has its benefits and flaws, yet we over do it all the time. Android, iOS, WebOS and Windows 7 have giving us an interesting look at how phones can differ. Each and everyone of these operating systems are far more advanced than anything that we have experienced ten years ago. So we should be grateful that we have great options to chose from. http://now.sprint.com/arrive/?ECID=vanity:arrive.

It will be one of two options, since they tweeted all about the new phone will have HUBS, and they talked about a Hub for Music, Gaming etc. 1.) Windows Phone 7 areas are explicitly termed HUBS 2.) Samsung Galaxy S2 is getting Four Hubs (Social, Gaming, Readers, Music) it will be one of these two debuts

What we have to remember is that each OS and device is for different users. The manufacturers have done research and focus groups for these products. So as crappy as we think one phone or system is it is the best thing ever to someone else. I personally love my ipod touch but I don't need it to make calls. I like the android OS but the customization is something I don't have a lot of time for. It's freaking cool. My boss has the EVO and my friend has the Galaxy and I love what they have done. I have my own business in addition to working as a coorporate trainer full time. My life is filled with M$. Everywhere I look, Im hip deep. I use Microsoft Office Live, XBox Live, Office, Zune and IM. All for either my own buisness or my full time career. I'm excited to use the windows phone 7 device. I went and played with the OS at AT&T and the guy I spoke with uses it on his coorporate phone. So for the Biz ennd it looks like a win for me.
