Sprint HTC 7 Pro coming in 2011!

Here it is folks.  Looks like HTC snuck in a little surprise as this is the so far unseen HTC 7 Pro, featuring that all too familiar and wonderful sliding (and tilting) keyboard and it's coming to Sprint this spring.

The device will reportedly feature 16GB of storage, has a 3.6" screen, presumably a 1Ghz processor. No confirmation on 4G, but we wouldn't doubt it.

Overall it's a solid device, with a great keyboard. This is the device many of us have been waiting for, so kudos to Sprint and HTC on this design.

Anyone else getting excited?

  • Hey i dont know if you guys know but your new Website does not work in Chrome. It just loads things over and over and over and never shows the page. just a note.
  • I'm using SRWare Iron (Chrome clone without the privacy issues) and the site loads ok on here - albeit with minor formatting glitches e.g. the Smartphone Experts panel at the bottom blends in with the black sidebar). Anyway, I wish us UK people might see a version of this phone at some stage. Until then, I guess I still have my Touch Pro 2! :)
  • I use Chrome and it works perfectly fine for me. No problems.
  • I am so pleasantly surprised. :) Great job Sprint & HTC. I was holding out after loosing my HTC TP2(Sprint) in mexico :O
    I had to break out the old Palm Treo 800w. Eventually I broke down and got the Tmobile HTC HD2,gret device by the way. But this new sprint WP7 device, well I just couldent be happier. Its like they made an actual perfect choice! and its on good ol Sprint! yay! Ill be getting one for the wife and myself.
  • I was hoping for a bigger screen, but yay! They might just have me switch over from Verizon, especially if it has 4G and more especially if they can get a wifi hotspot thing, too.
  • Are there any plans to release one of these for AT&T? If not, was it because they didn't want to compete with the LG Quantum? Just want to make sure I get the right phone, and I'm already on AT&T...
  • I am excited by this phone. I would be even more excited if Verizon were to tell me that this phone will be in there lineup as well!
  • Yes. Very excited. Finally we have a phone to look forward to. 4G is a MUST for a 2011 release date.
