Sprint Possibly Getting the First CDMA Windows Phone 7 Device? (UPDATED)

The two tweets you see above are from Sprint’s official Twitter account. What does this have to do with a possible Windows Phone 7 launch? First off, the official name of certain aspects in Windows Phone 7 are “Hubs”. These hubs consist of app groups like Zune Pass for music, pictures and videos stored on the phone and places like Facebook, and XBOX Live for gaming. Add that to a recent update for WP7 that was announced by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer that adds cut-and-paste, and more importantly, CDMA support for Sprint and Verizon. No word on when Big Red will get theirs.

As for the phone itself? It will most likely be the HTC 7 Pro. Sprint’s CEO, Dan Hesse, was seen at CES earlier in the year with one, as if you needed more convincing. The phone itself has a 3.6 inch touchscreen, slide out QWERTY keyboard, 8GB of internal memory, 5MP camera capable of 720p video, and will most likely be just 3G enabled, no 4G. Sprint will be officially announcing it on Thursday, but you probably won’t be able to get your hands on one until March. Check out the video below to keep you satisfied in the meantime!

UPDATE: Another tweet from Sprint with the same hashtag, describing how WP7 throws contacts from all sources into one. Definitely going to happen on Thursday!
