    Are you saying that HTC originally agreed to make the HT7 Pro available to only Sprint Users in the US? If so you are completely mistaken.

    Think about it, it wouldn’t make any sense for HTC to manufacture a phone with GSM capabilities only to a CDMA provider? Just because they agreed that Sprint would be their preferred carrier in the US doesn’t mean that they would be daft enough not to have different agreements in other countries.

    And why should Sprint users be upset? Windows Phone 7 is not ready for US users. Besides not being CDMA ready, there’s the little thing with the landscape mode and lack of cut and paste capabilities. So why should US customers be jealous because they can’t purchase a new phone running on an OS which isn’t quite ready?
