The device will be carried by Sprint in the United States, as one of the first Windows Phone 7 CDMA devices.
Few specifications have been pinned down, but the device will resemble the difference between Touch Pro and Touch Diamond in the Windows Mobile 6 era. The device will likely be similar in specification to the HD7 that has already launched on T-Mobile, but with the addition of the slide out, flip-up keyboard. The device’s design closely mirrors that of the prior-generation Touch Pro 2.
In Europe, the HD7 Pro will be sold as a GSM/UMTS smartphone, and it is possible that variant will later be rebadged with carrier-marketed names for AT&T and T-Mobile. Similarly, Verizon may also receive the device after an exclusivity period with Sprint.
