Late yesterday, Verizon has officially confirmed its first ever Windows Phone 7 phone HTC Trophy launch details while AT&T announced HTC HD7 launch details. Sprint has launched its first Windows Phone 7 handset HTC Arrive with CDMA compatibility in late March for $200. In the middle of April month, Amazon has offered the HTC arrive phone at $0.01 for a limited time. Now Amazon has once again started selling the same handset for a mere penny with a two year contract with the carrier. Yes! you only have to pay a single penny to grab it.
HTC Arrive is just a rebranded version of HTC 7 Pro. Sprint branded HTC Arrive is featuring 3.6-inch LCD touch screen with 480×800 pixels of resolution, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor, 720p HD video shooting capability with LED flash equipped 5 megapixels auto focused camera, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 16GB internal storage, Bluetooth 2.1, micro USB and a full host of Windows services like Xbox Live, Zune and so on. This handset also comes pre-loaded with Microsoft’s long-awaited NoDo software, which includes cut-and-paste functionality, speedier applications and games along with improved Marketplace search.
On a side note, Sprint is still offering this handset for $199.99 on contract.
You can pick the Sprint branded HTC Arrive handset at Amazon Wireless Stores (hit the link) for $0.01 by signing the two-year agreement with the carrier (for Sprint’s new customers) but the same will cost $99.99 for the Sprint’s existing customers with qualified upgrades.
