RIDGELAND, USA: Cellular South, the largest privately held wireless communications provider in the US, introduced the HTC 7 Pro smartphone, offering customers its first Windows Phone 7-powered glance-and-go experience combined with an innovative design that features a sliding full QWERTY keyboard and tilt-up display.
The HTC 7 Pro also features a unique Start screen with Hubs that provides easy access to the user’s most valuable content and customizable Live Tiles, which come to life with real-time updates from the Web. Depending on the app, the Live Tiles might show pending messages and appointments, news and weather, or game notifications and friend status – all continuously refreshed. It also lets the user customize people, apps, playlists, pictures, and other favorites to the Start screen, so they’re available at a single touch.

Stegall said the sleek handset slides opens and tilts to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard for fast, comfortable typing, while productivity features such as the ability to sort, scan and manage Outlook email, open and edit the latest Office documents on the phone and keep track of the markets with the stocks application, offer new ways to maximize the business day.
