HTC Radar Video Showcase (But What’s With That Name?)


The HTC Radar is no stranger to video, already showing up in the spotlight as we gave it a hands-on at the IFA earlier this month. Now we can add to its video résumé some official spots produced by HTC, showing off some of the Mango phone’s capabilities.

These clips talk hardware design, access to media, and gaming. Maybe more than anything, though, they just make the Radar look cool.

One video in particular gives us some insight into the phone’s name, as its tools let you keep current events and info from your social group “all on your radar” (though that connection was pretty obvious).

While we’re talking names, we’ve got to wonder what HTC was thinking when it comes to the Radar and the HTC Holiday, which we believe will end up as the HTC Raider. Two phones by the same manufacturer, coming out around the same time, running different operating systems, and with names as similar as Radar and Raider? That’s just begging for confused, unhappy customers. HTC would be wise to change its mind about Raider before it’s too late.
