HTC Radar

Once again I am left with no option but to remind you of the infinite number of smartphones that hit the store everyweek. But of late it seems the smartphones are slowly migrating from Android into another OS ,as sweet as the Android, the Windows Mango. Ever since the announcement of Mango was made, mobile phone giants like Nokia, Samsung and HTC have started producing Mango phones in large numbers.Samsung released its Focus while HTC already had it Titan and now HTC has another Windows phone, the HTC Radar.The Radar seems to be the down scaled version of the Titan.

The HTC Radar is a good-looking – though far from flashy – and well-built smartphone. It’s a WP7.5 Mango-running 1GHz powered package with a fairly palatable price tag hanging off that aluminum unibody. Sure, it may not be the upgrader’s dream, but it will probably tick plenty of boxes for those that are only now considering giving the platform a go. A more detailed look at what’s in Radar

So there you go. A look at the surface of the new HTC Radar. With the added Mango awesomeness and HTC sense it might be a product of desire. But one must remember Nokia is back in the competition (Had its own monopoly with Symbian) and the companies must know better that they have to do better to compete against India’s favorite mobile company. With Nokia’s Lumia hiting the stores soon, will HTC Radar be true its name and stay in the radar?
