The Radar 4G will be the first Windows Phone Mango handset to launch on T-Mobile USA
Nearly a month after T-Mobile USA initially announced the US version of the Mango-powered HTC Radar, the carrier officially announced Monday that it will offer the Windows Phone-based HTC Radar 4G for $99.99 with a two-year contract starting November 2.
The Radar, of course, is not new. HTC announced the handset earlier this month alongside the 4.7-inch Titan. But the Radar is new to T-Mobile USA, and the first T-Mobile phone to run Windows Phone Mango, reports BGR.
The device sports a 3.8-inch LCD touch screen display and is powered by a 1-GHz Snapdragon processor. A dedicated camera button provides easy access to the Radar's 5-megapixel camera, even if it's locked. It comes in at 4.7 by 2.4 by 0.4 inches, weighs 4.8 ounces, and has 8GB of on-board storage.
Like most T-Mobile phones, the Radar 4G comes preloaded with T-Mobile TV app which lets you watch live TV, news, sports, and kids’ shows, and stream popular entertainment on demand and also the Netflix app. You can find more details about the all the bloatware here (which isn't too bad)
It seems T-Mobile is really getting pumped up for the holidays in a big way, and the Radar is only one part of the equation. If a leaked roadmap proves true, T-Mobile still has 5 more phones on the way. Yowza, that's alot.
Besides the lack of details now, I'm sure all we be told in the next few weeks. For those interested, expect a full review of the HTC Radar 4G next Monday.
