HTC Radar 4G is T-Mobile's first 4G Windows Phone 7 phone

Summary:T-Mobile may not be getting the iPhone, but it is getting its first Windows Phone 7 phone: the HTC Radar 4G.

With its acquisition of the iPhone seeming increasingly unlikely by the day, T-Mobile is focusing its efforts on smart phones of a non-Apple sort.

A day after revealing the HTC Amaze and announcing the availability of the Samsung Galaxy S II, T-Mobile has announced its first 4G-ready Windows Phone 7 device - the HTC Radar.

The Radar, of course, is not new. HTC announced the device earlier this month alongside the 4.7-inch Titan. But the Radar is new to T-Mobile, and, perhaps obviously, the first T-Mobile phone to run Windows Phone Mango.

Crafted from a single piece of aluminum, the Radar features a 3.8-inch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and a 5-megapixel camera with dedicated button. The device also comes equipped with a front-facing camera and 8GB of storage.

There's no firm release date on the Radar, but HTC says that the phone will reach stores in time for the holidays. IPhone who?
