[Full Radar Review]

  • by | October 31, 2011 7:26 AM

    The HTC Radar 4G is the first new device available in the U.S. running Windows Phone 7.5. Sure, the upgrade has been available on existing devices for a while, but now we finally get to see some of the new enhancements and new hardware improvements. If you were to only go by the basic specifications list that accommodates the HTC Radar 4G, you might think it's just a rehash of last year's HTC Trophy and certainly isn't anything special. Read on to find out if this guy is just last year's model with a different color, or if it's actually got some skills that you may have underestimated. ...

    HTC is clearly excited about its new Windows Phone Mango handsets, the HTC Titan and Radar 4G. If you've read our Titan review, you'd know that we're sharing in the company's enthusiasm. Hoping to spread some of that interest out elsewhere, HTC has produced a whole bunch of videos featuring comedian Jim Gaffigan, showing off some of the capabilities of this hardware and Windows Phone software while having a few laughs. There are sixteen of these videos altogether, a mix of minute-long clips that focus on one particular feature and longer-format videos. Both the Radar 4G for T-Mobile and ...

    It's been almost a month since T-Mobile announced plans to carry HTC's Radar as the Radar 4G, and nearly just as long since a leak suggested that T-Mobile would begin sales of the Windows Phone handset on November 2. Now the carrier has made things official, posting to its Facebook page that the Radar 4G will be available starting Wednesday, November 2. While the date might have been tipped-off by the leak of an earlier roadmap, that old pricing information needs to be updated; instead of the nearly $200 mentioned back then, now T-Mobile is saying that the Radar 4G will go for about $100, ...

    One-and-a-half months after HTC introduced the Radar Windows Phone -- together with the Titan -- at this year's IFA in Berlin, the Taiwanese manufacturer is now officially launching the phone in India. The phone is HTC's first Mango-device and sports a 1GHz processor, 3.8-inch WVGA screen, 512MB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, f/2.2 lens-equipped five-megapixel camera with improved low-light performance, and a front-facer for video calling and (future) Skype. It will go for Rs. 25,490 (around $517) and its current announcement coincides with Microsoft's launching Windows Phone in India.

    Londoners have been invited to an HTC event that's currently underway, where the company promised to show them "what's next". A rumor said that this shindig would be a platform for the company to highlight some of its new Windows Phone handsets, rather than anything Android. Sure enough, Mango is the word, and so far HTC has debuted the Radar and Titan Windows Phone smartphones. We had heard that the Radar (pictured above) might just be the HTC Omega that's been in our sights for a while now, and so it is. The less-powerful of the two models, the Radar was expected to feature a 1.4 or ...

    The next generation of Windows Phone is upon us, which includes the release of Mango, plus a wave of new hardware. Among the first batch of devices is the HTC Radar and Titan, the latter of which is the most powerful Windows Phone device yet, packing a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (dual-core Windows Phones will arrive at some point, but not yet), with 512MB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, and a massive 4.7" WVGA Super LCD display. There is a 1.3MP on the front allows you to use video chat, and the camera on the rear takes photos at 8MP with its F2.2 lens, which should offer great low-light ...

    It looks like Mango could be nearly upon us, with rumors suggesting Microsoft could officially launch the OS any day now. Once that happens, we can expect the floodgates to open and start to see the arrival of all the new Windows Phone hardware we've been hearing about for months and months. One such model will be HTC's Radar, which we've already seen described as "coming soon" to a carrier. Now we may be able to put a date to its release, with one retailer announcing plans to carry the phone beginning October 1. The UK's Phones 4u made a statement today concerning its sales of the ...

    HTC Radar is the lower-spec'd wave-two Windows Phone to come out of Taiwan, alongside its larger, faster cousin, the HTC Titan. They were both launched at the beginning of September and showcased at this year's IFA in Berlin. Orange U.K. has the phone listed with a "coming soon" label but there is no information regarding the availability. As far as the pricing is concerned, it will be offered for free on contract. How soon is "coming soon"? Our guess is that it all depends on whether Microsoft decides to officially launch Mango this week, as we've been hearing, or maybe Redmond pushes it ...

    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). ...

    The HTC Omega is one of the phones the Taiwanese phone maker is expected to launch with the occasion of its September 1 event. We've seen initial press renders of the device but the Omega has surfaced in some real-life photos ahead of its announcement. The phone is for sale on an Algerian website and goes for 370 Euros (approximately $540). It seems to run an Orange-branded ROM but rumors around its specs talk about a single-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 SoC, 512MB of RAM, front-facing camera, and an eight-megapixel main camera.

    Cases have appeared claiming to be for the HTC Eternity and HTC Omega, further solidifying the existence of these rumored Windows Phone Mango handsets. Like last week's appearance of HTC Bliss and HTC Kingdom (Hero 4G?) cases, these are form-fitting models pictured without dummy phones, so at most they give us a sense of the general shape and port locations of these devices. (Notably, the camera cutouts on the Eternity case seem to match the camera/flash/speaker placement on those leaked images from late last month.) As a quick refresher, Eternity and Omega are said to be 4.7-inch and ...

    We revealed to you some pretty clear press shots of the upcoming HTC Omega Windows Phone 7.5 device just about a week ago, and we also suggested that the consumer name for the Omega would be HTC Radar. New video today confirms that the Omega is indeed a white Windows Phone 7.5 handset that will go by the name Radar. It'll have an 3.8" SLCD display with 8GB of storage, and most likely (though still unconfirmed) a 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm chip. We're most curious to hear about the integration of the front-facing camera, which we're thinking might have something to do with Skype, which is ...

    File this under "unsubstantiated" with a capital UN: WMPoweruser has heard from one of its tipsters that HTC may have two unannounced Windows Phone 7 smartphones in the works, the HTC Omega and HTC Eternity. According to the source's information, the Eternity will be the higher-end of the two devices, shipping with Mango and sporting a 4.7-inch AMOLED display. That's getting quite close to tablet territory for our tastes, and could end up blurring the line between the two even more. It certainly sounds like it could be stretching-out your pockets, at least. The Omega, we're told, would ...

    This is the HTC Omega, an upcoming Windows Phone 7 device from HTC (likely to be announced at the September 1 press event). It'll come in a white/silver color combination, perhaps with aluminum construction, and may be called the HTC Radar upon release. Rumored to be powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 SoC (likely to be single-core), and include 512MB of RAM, the HTC Omega also features a front-facing camera, perhaps ushering in the era of Skype integration on WP7 devices for video chat. The rumor mill puts it as having a 3.8" SLCD display and an 8MP camera on the rear. We also ...

    We couldn't very well give some hands-on attention to the HTC Titan while neglecting its little brother, the HTC Radar, so we sought the smartphone out at IFA in Berlin to get some time with it as well. If it wasn't for a few Mango-specific quirks, you'd be forgiven for thinking the Radar was a refresh of a first-wave Windows Phone device rather than entirely new hardware. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though, as it helps keep costs down, providing multiple price points of entry for users considering making the jump to Windows Phone. It's harder to see existing WP7 users migrating to ...
