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 back a little. Anyways, it shouldn’t be that far out.
The HTC Radar sports the same specs of last year’s Trophy, meaning it will pack a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Aside from the front-facing webcam and a new, improved five-megapixel back camera, everything is the same.
