Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
bgr.com just published a review of the Sprint HTC Arrive. See http://www.bgr.com/2011/03/16/htc-arrive-review/. I’m a little miffed they got a device before I did. I’m chopped liver? Don’t answer that.
Anyway, this is an interesting device for those of you that can’t stand the thought of going cold turkey with a soft keyboard on a device like the Samsung Focus. In fact, review after review of the HTC Arrive praises the keyboard.
I should have a device showing up in my mailbox in the next couple of business days. I am planning on activating it and trying it for at least three weeks. More later when that happens. Until then, enjoy the Boy Genius Report and pic.
Did you ever get your Arrive? I got mine on Tuesday...been on the Touch Diamond for about 2.5 years or so (not long after it came out), and I love my Arrive. WP7 takes a small bit of getting used to, but to see all of your stuff populate in over time is awesome. There is not a shortage of apps, and the big ones are coming in fairly quickly. I don't use the keyboard very much, as the virtual keyboard is excellent, so I do wish I didn't have it and the size was a bit smaller, but otherwise, it's a great phone and OS. Looking forward to more good things!
Sorry Tim. I thought the Microsoft IT guys in Redmond were sending me one but apparently it was a different Keith. Bunch of teasers. Glad you are digging yours.
