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.

SHARE:

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?

      • You mean without that android crap? Android is crap used to run malware.

        Mango totally crushes android in security, reliability, and usability. Of course living in your moms basement with no job you wouldnt know that.

        The Linux Geek typically supplies observations of this level of intellectual value. He seems sexually attracted to an operating system that has been used to send thousands of American programming jobs to India, China, and Brazil.

        @The Linux Geek Windows 7 is great, the only biggest obstacle with it is that companies are not creating a W7 version at launch, iPhone and Android are generally available first then maybe W7.

    I've been in love with Windows Phone 7 since I got mine back in March! Think this one might be perfect for my wife.
