Amazon UK is accepting pre-orders for the HTC Titan and Radar; arriving on October 15th
Based on Amazon UK’s current advertisement, these two luscious Windows Phones are expected to arrive on October 15th, which is well within the parameters of its anticipated release in the European market. In terms of pricing, Amazon UK is asking customers to plop down $787 (£489.99) for the higher end HTC Titan. Meanwhile, the still fully equipped HTC Radar is selling for $562 (£349.99).
Even though they might be perceived to be on the pricey side of things for some people, Amazon UK’s pricing for the two are actually comparable to the ones that German consumers are expected to pay. As much as we’re comforted by a mid-October release date, things can always happen at an instant – so don’t be surprised if that date changes between now and then.

Any hope the Titan will make it to Verizon?

Right now, the only specs on the Titan is GSM tech, so unless we start seeing something different it doesn't look like it. What annoys me is that for all my snooping on all the tech sites, I haven't found ANY reference to ANY Mango device attached to CDMA, so I have no clue what Verizon and Sprint intend to have. That is really aggravating.

Probably not. Verizon is in bed with google and Android. They will probably grab the crappiest WP Mango they can find and then tell customers not to buy it.

How come windows phone 7 didn't go with a dual-core processor in their new phones, just disappointing really. I'm still going to buy one, but waiting for the right one

this is simply my opinion but I have seen the trophy and the DROID 3 run side by side and the Trophy is smoother. WP7 is so optimized that it runs better with a 1gig than Android does with a dual core. The extra heat, shorter battery life, and programming quirks, aren't worth the extra multitasking YET. I have a Casio Commando and really like it but if Verizon gets a keyboard Mango device, I may be switching.

Mango sure doesn't need a dual core processor. It will be smooth without it. But, I have started to wonder if Windows 8 will need a dual core when that OS becomes adapted to smartphones. I haven't heard any rumors of the kind and it won't stop me from getting a W7 depending on what device is available on which carrier, just kinda wondering.

The reason is = WP7 does not support dual core.
