HTC Radar 4G appears on Microsoft's website looking like a Maitre d'
The HTC Radar 4G is available from T-Mobile. Unlike most smartphones that are released these days, the device was originally launched in white, looking like it was dropped in some snow. That is what makes the picture of the phone found on Microsoft's website so interesting. The variant shown in the image on the Microsoft site has the same white border but the outer part of the device is black. The two-tone look gives the phone the appearance of a Maitre d' wearing a tuxedo.

We are not sure if HTC plans on issuing a version of the handset looking like this, or if it was just done for the website. We must admit to digging the look, even if it seems formal. In fact, this might be the first Windows Phone handset that gets invited to a Black Tie affair.

By the way, while the Microsoft website is offering the HTC Radar 4G free with a $50 mail-in rebate, a $100 trade-in value on your old handset, and a signed two-year contract, T-Mobile's site is offering the device for free with the two year lock up.

My HTC Radar is white, it's ok but I like the metalic grey color of this one better.

I understand that people use cases to give their phone some flair, but I would love to see some more color to more cell phones. I made fun of all the Nokia colors, but once I started seeing them on videos I kinda shut up. It makes them stand out.

That being said, white may be the worst color to use. I can't keep my black phones clean. It wouldn't even be a fair fight for me. I like the looks of the Radar, but, wow, I would have it 4 different shades of grimey in a couple of months.

Gadget, Buddy, at this stage you are beyond talking trash and into the troll area. Every chance you get, you post that Microsoft is taking manufacturers to court, when by now every single person including all the Pygmies in 3rd world countries who still live in huts know that they are not. Microsoft is having it out with Motorola, but they have deals worked out with most everyone else which involved no- that would be zero, nada, not even a little bit- of court time. As a matter of a fact, HTC was the first to work out a deal. They and Microsoft have a fantastic working relationship, dating back to Windows Mobile being the first smartphones HTC ever produced. HTC was the first to release Windows Phones 7. And, yes, HTC has said repeatedly that they make really good profits off of WP. I am sure just a drop in a bucket compared to Android, but it is still cash. Let it drop, already.
