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 just-announced HTC Sensation XE Android, and its plans to carry the phone in white starting October 1. It then took the opportunity to switch gears to Windows Phone and reveal that the Radar, too, will hit its shelves on the first. The retailer has extensive plans for the Radar, including featuring it in exclusive demo displays.
We were hoping we might see the Radar a little sooner than that, especially if Mango drops before the end of the week, but we suppose a fortnight falls under the heading “soon”.
