Sprint teases HTC 7 Pro for Thursday announcement?

Here's what we know:

  1. The Sprint 7 Pro ROM is finalized, ready for shipment
  2. They were waiting on the NoDo update for CDMA support
  3. We've heard that it's coming in early March from Raphael Rivera
  4. Sprint is announcing a new phone this Thursday

Call us crazy, but we think this is the big announcement for the HTC 7 Pro which many of us have been waiting on since...well October when we were first told Sprint was getting it. The slider device has an excellent keyboard, 3.6" screen and an excellent build quality (here's a review of the GSM version, which should tell you everything). Sure, this could be another Android device but we're leaning towards definitely HTC 7 Pro.

Update: Seems to be confirmed now, see this post.

  • This phone is OK, but I am really hoping for something with a larger screen and no keyboard myself.
  • Yeah, I agree that this phone is just ok. I actually want a keyboard, but without global roaming, this is not a useful device. I'll be waiting for a real "Pro" device.
  • Having handled the device a few times already, I really like the size and build on the phone. It's also just very professional and snazzy looking. While a Focus would be nice on Sprint (and my bet is we'll get one), nothing beats having a dedicated KB...at least for my uses. And the KB on the 7 Pro is stupendous.
  • This is just the start, we should see a few new devices in the summer-fall when MS has Mango ready.
  • YAAAAAAAWWWWWWNNNNNN! Wake me up when Samsung brings over Omnia7 Pro, then I will think about getting somewhat out of my sleep state.I hope the new devices are going to be h/w competitive w/ the new devices from Android, iPhone & WebOS. Otherwise it's to the back of the short bus again, while we wait for MS to catch up. (No RDP, & full Exchange sync by Q4 update release = REALLY??)
  • I know it might just be the HTC 7 Pro but I am really hoping for the Omnia 7 as reported byhttp://mobilitydigest.com/windows-phone-7-updates-from-ces-2011/
  • Now, I'd love to snag an Omnia 7! That would be a nice thing for Sprint to launch with. Launching the Omnia 7 alongside the Pro would seem to be a good collection of devices for people to choose from.
