After a couple of days worth of teasing, the HTC Arrive -- aka the HTC 7 Pro -- has, erm, arrived on Sprint! It'll officially go on sale March 20 for $199.99 (after two-year contract and $100 rebate). And that's not a bad price for the tilting, sliding phone. And best of all, it'll have the cut-and-paste update on board when you pull it out of the box. Can't beat that.

Other features of note:

  • 3.6-inch touchscreen at 480x800
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 16GB of internal memory
  • 1500mAh battery
  • 5MP camera with flash and 720p recording
  • Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR
  • Wifi b/g/n
  • And all the usual Sprint customizations and WP7 features.

Full specs and the presser are after the break, and there's more at Sprint. Who's gonna pick this one up?
