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 the Radar, unless they’re really set on that front-facing camera.
Do you think the looks and size of the Radar will win out, or are you more interested in other new Mango hardware?
