The first device from Sprint based on Windows Phone 7, the HTC Arrive offers an innovative design with a sliding full QWERTY keyboard and tilt-up display. With the unique glance-and-go experience of the Windows Phone 7 operating system, the Arrive allows you to get to what's important to you, easier and faster in less steps. And it gives you the productivity of Office Mobile and Bing, plus the fun of Xbox LIVE and Zune.
Unique start screen with live tiles allow you to quickly see pending messages, upcoming appointments, and game notifications (see larger image).
You'll enjoy fast 3G speeds from Sprint's high-speed, dependable EV-DO network, and you'll be able to access optional Sprint services such as Telenav GPS Navigator, Sprint TV and Movies (for video-on-demand with full-motion video and vivid sound), Sprint Music Plus, and more via the Sprint Zone. And you'll be able to access the Windows Phone Marketplace to view and download apps, music, and premium Xbox LIVE games.
In addition to its 3.6-inch touchscreen display, the HTC Arrive includes integrated SRS WOW HD surround sound enhancement for an audio boost when watching videos on the go. It's powered by a blazing-fast Qualcomm 1 GHz Snapdragon processor for a fast mobile data experience. In addition to the 16 GB of internal memory, the HTC Arrive can also access Windows Live SkyDrive for cloud-based storage (up to 25 GB).
Other features include a 5-megapixel camera/camcorder (with HD 720p video capture), Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, access to corporate and personal e-mail, full HTML browser, and up to 6 hours of talk time.
The Windows Phone 7 operating system has been designed to help you do more in less steps, and keep you updated on the things that are most important to you.
You can customize the Live Tiles on your Start Screen with what you care about--from people to web sites--and they'll continuously scan the web to keep you updated about your world at a glance.
Windows Phone 7 also brings together the things you use most on your phone in six Hubs: People, Pictures, Office, Games, Music + Video, and Marketplace. Grouping them in Hubs like this lets you get to what you need, quicker, because you don't have to jump from apps to the web to contact lists.
People Hub: Less Out-of-Touch, More In-the-Know.
From calls to texting to social networks, receive updates instantly with the latest photos posted, comments made, and messages received with just one glance. Post and share comments instantly after receiving live updates from social networks.
Games Hub: Just Be Yourself... Or, Someone Else.
Download new games, test them before you buy and play friends while on the go with built-in Xbox LIVE features. Use your avatar and gamer profile to track scores and wins, challenge friends to play on the go, and become a better gamer with Windows Phone 7's "Spotlight" tips, tricks, and advice.
Music and Video Hub: Your Music, Video, and Radio... All in One Place.
Easily find, access, and stream your favorite music, radio, TV, and videos while on the go. Purchase music by the song or get unlimited music downloads for one monthly price with Zune Pass. Wirelessly sync your favorite music and videos to a PC.
Pictures Hub: Snap It, Share It, Say It.
Share, add captions, and post pictures to Facebook or Windows Live without needing an extra application. Receive instant updates about friends' and family's latest photos from social networks.
Office Hub: View and Update Office Documents from Your Phone
Windows Phone 7 has mobile versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint on hand for reviewing or editing on the go. Notes in OneNote Mobile--grocery lists, meeting memos, spontaneous musings--can sync wirelessly to the web and include voice clips and pictures. SharePoint Workspace Mobile makes it easier to collaborate with your coworkers when you're out and about.
Marketplace: Find Something New Everyday
Personalizing your phone just got quicker and more convenient with the Marketplace Hub, where you can discover and download apps, games, music, videos, and more. You'll find popular titles in all the categories you care about, with hundreds of new apps available every week. There are apps with Live Tiles that automatically update on the Start Screen, such as current weather with Weatherbug and breaking news from the Associated Press app.
