First-ever Windows Phone 7 smartphone, HTC Arrive, to be made available from wireless carrier Sprint, is now on pre-order status via the Amazon Store. The smartphone flashes a price tag of $149 available when signing a contract agreement with the carrier.
Officially unveiled a few weeks back, the wireless carrier confirmed on the device’s availability as of March 20th. Hearing on the Pre-order status of HTC Arrive might seem not at all surprising for some, since for long Sprint has been offering its customers to reserve the Windows Phone 7 device.
However, what many of you might not be aware, the HTC Arrive is available for $199 on contract from the carrier itself, while Amazon displays a price tag of $149, which obviously would divert the customer attention.
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.
