Pre-orders for unlocked versions of the HTC Titan and Radar are now ready in the US
Taking a peek over at CellHut.com, pre-orders are available for the HTC Radar and Titan – both of which are stated as being compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, Cellular One, and a myriad of other wireless carriers. Specifically, these unlocked models will literally cost you an arm and a leg seeing that the HTC Radar is going for $599.99, and the Titan is placed at a wallet busting $799.99.
Interestingly enough, both smartphones are actually considered to be on sale – though, it’s hard to imagine with those prices. Nonetheless, if you really want to guarantee yourself a handset, or simply tire of waiting for the carriers to make a move, then go on ahead and get a pre-order.

HA! $739.99 for Radar but then only $599.99 with sale price? That's how much the galaxy nexus prime will probably cost off contract and that phone won't have last years technology.

Apples and oranges (or Mangoes), Mr. Josh. The Galaxy Nexus (Or Droid Prime, or whatever) is an I.C.S. Android beast, for sure. It will most likely have the top line for everything. But Mango's version of W7 has all the power it needs with a top end single core processor and the internals on the Titan and Galaxy S. I would like to see expandable memory and maybe some higher resolution screens, but the Windows Phone experience will be smooth without all the hardware required on Google's OS. No slam on my part on the upcoming Samsung- it will be state of the art. But it you are interested in real life experience and performance, I think the Titan and most WP devices will easily hold their own.

That's not the point. The point isn't that WP7 can run on specs like this. The point is that it is priced ridiculously high while it has all low specs across the board, even for a Windows Phone.

You know there is so much tout about specs and all and yet PA hardly does a head to head real time comparison between iOS vs Wp7 vs Android that I've seen. Take the iphone 5, HTC Titan, and Nexud Prime and put them in the grinder. Compare apps, speed, ui, productive, etc.. Make the fanboys choke and ball their eyes out!

from what i saw when i was using the samsung focus with the official rtm mango update i forced on it, there was a vast speed improvement. i didn't bother to do any real official testing, but for daily use the OS did improve.
also with the benchmark app that windows uses, my mango focus out did most of the other windows phones.
snowgator, i wholeheartedly agree with you..... hardware deos not seem to effect WP7 nearly as much as android
