Sprint will apparently be offering preorders of its HTC 7 Pro
-- the only CDMA Windows Phone 7 device to be announced so far -- in just a few days' time on November 8th, but there's a fairly big catch: you've got to be a Microsoft employee to get in on the action. Redmond has been great about seeding WP7 models to its staff so far
, so it's definitely possible that Sprint is working with Microsoft in some capacity to get 7 Pros to its folks a little early in an effort to smooth out last-minute bugs and get feedback... either that, or it's just doing them a solid by letting 'em preorder a few days before everyone else. Last we'd heard, the 7 Pro won't be coming until 2011 (despite the fact that there's already an FCC certification
ready to roll), so if we were to see a few of the things floating around campus before January, we certainly wouldn't be surprised. Pricing is yet to be announced.
