Ridgeland, Miss. -- Cellular South, the largest privately held wireless communications provider in the U.S., introduced the HTC 7 Pro smartphone today 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.

“The HTC 7 Pro is the perfect device for power users who want to combine the ultimate in business efficiency with the ability to take full advantage of their leisure time,” said Sherry Stegall, senior vice president for sales and customer operations at Cellular South.

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.

Windows Phone 7 Hubs bring together related content from the Web, applications and services into a single view and offers quick and easy access to the users’ most valuable content. The six Hubs are built on specific themes, including:

* People Hub brings together relevant content based on the person, including photos and live feeds from social networks. People Hub provides a central place from which to update status or change profile pictures across multiple social networking sites. Skim Facebook®, Windows® Live feeds & photos, then call, text or post to friends and get directions to their place.

* Games Hub is an on-the-go arcade and the first and only official Xbox LIVE experience on a phone. Play solo, or use the free Xbox LIVE service to match wits with friends wherever they are and view player avatars, profiles and achievements.

* Pictures Hub houses your entire collection and makes it easy to share pictures to a social network in one step. It can also bring together a user’s photos by integrating with the Web and PC, making the phone the ideal place to view an entire picture and video collection, including photos saved to the phone and pictures friends posted on Facebook or Windows Live. You can even send favorites to friends, or post them to Facebook or Windows Live, all from one place.

There’s even a built-in FM radio and high-resolution screen that’s perfect for watching TV shows, movies or your own video clips.
