    Don't get me wrong I love my Arrive I think it is a great device. If you like the forum facter I would say get it it will get mango so you will have the latest software in the end. I'm just saying if Sprint doesn't make an effert to keep up with WP and stays manly with Android I will have to move on.

    I wouldn't expect to see a Nokia device on Sprint until at least 2013, if ever. Let's face it, CDMA is not something they are going to look at developing any time soon. It seems as a Sprint user, our choices are be satisfied with second rate devices, or go to AT&T.
    i would never go to at&t. They have the worst service i have ever seen. t-mob is even worse.

    I hope you're wrong but i cant help nut feel deep down you're right. I do think there we be a big push come Nokia time. Its pretty much do or die at this point.

    Sprint has been pretty good about putting out the first this and the first that. They had the first WimMo 5.0 device the Apache. Then they had the Pre first then there was the Arrive the first CDMA WP7 with NoDo so I hope they keep it up. I don't want to have to change carriers I really like Sprint.

    I hope I am wrong too. The pricing for Sprint plans is definately good, though it isn't quite as good now that they have reconfigured their Premier program. At any rate, I am willing to pay a little more per month to get some decent devices if it comes down to it. But I will wait and see what happens, hopefully I am surprised! =)

    I am definitely gonna wait for at least a little while. I have to admit though, I was online yesterday looking at plans on ATT and Tmobile. Don't want to switch, but it can be tempting especially with the sexy look of the Focus and HD7... I am hearing rumors from a friend about a certain "Superphone" coming to Sprint in September, but can't say I give two craps about that OS. I was actually really into webOS until I came across this little puppy. WOW. Even my wife is intrigued.

    As it has been a month since the last post on this, allow me to give a little update. I was in a couple of Sprint stores today, and was not excited by the Arrive. It seems a good, well constructed phone, but 3.6" as the only option is strange. Seeing it sitting next to the Motorla Photon with the GS2 from Samsung coming, both with 4.3" screens, it seems like a entry level smartphone instead of the smooth running, bug free option that W7 is. Talking to the Sprint reps, they knew nothing of any other W7 coming except the rumor of the Mazaa, which is the HTC Trophy for Sprint. A 3.8" screen is way to small for a full touchscreen, in my opinion. If Sprint does indeed get the iPhone 5, W7 will be in a bad way on Sprint. I want off of AT&T, but I like W7. So irratated ....

    September and October are when I expect all the next-gen WP7 devices to be announced.

    HTC is announcing their Mango phones before IFA on Sept 1st. IFA - Home Hopefully we'll learn about some other devices at IFA as well.

    Also, the Fujitsu IS12T is a CDMA device. There is always a possibility that could come to Sprint. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Me ranting....I think Microsoft rushed the release of Windows Phone 7 to the market because honestly, they had no choice if they wanted it to be half way relevant. They had a collection of phones, built by various manufacturers, ready to be sold and they had a contract with AT+t to be the preferred carrier for their platform..Sprint and T-Mobile being the garnish on the dinner plate. Each phone in the current lineup are all pretty much identical internally but each different in some way shape or form to make them all seem special.

    I think the second generation of Windows Phone7 phones will include a better variety of phones for carriers to choose from and the inclusion of Mango will go along ways in helping Microsoft in the phone wars....

    Sprint always likes to announce their new phones at their own events. They rarely reveal new phones at trade shows like CES or MWC. So don't lose hope when you see all these new phones announced on other carriers.
