Microsoft has been continuously in the community and critic spotlight with their handling of the recent update issues. Now heads are turning to the decision in no longer enforcing support contact means to be supplied in apps for users to use to approach developers. Was this a wrong move by the software giant?
There have been some rumblings around internet of users experiencing some issues regarding Contacts on their WP7 phones. While we haven't experienced them ourselves (Edit: our pal Paul Acevedo has), there seem to be two things happening.
Just a small heads up for you folks, two of our favorite apps have received some nice price drops in the last few days--no word if they're permanent or temporary.
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?
