WP Mango-running HTC Radar lands at the FCC, getting closer to release
An HTC handset running on Windows Phone Mango has passed FCC certification and judging by the model number, we’re looking at the HTC Radar. Passing approval at the Federal Communications Commission is a needed step for a phone’s launch stateside, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will end up on the US market.

In the case of the Radar though, all evidence points to a soon-to-come release on none other but T-Mobile. The handset has appeared branded with the TMo logo on leaked pictures earlier today, and the GSM frequencies quoted in the filing match those of the carrier.

Bearing the model number NM8PI06100, the device is expected to launch with a 1GHz single-core Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, a 3.8-inch WVGA LCD screen and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Hopefully, these run-of-the mill specs translate into an affordable price tag as well.

Good news! Provided that this phone is strategically located in T-Mobile stores, this phone will get a lot of 'looks' if for nothing else but for the fact that it will be a 'white/gray phone' in a sea of black phones - it's going to 'stick out'. Hopefully, the reps will let people buy it (instead of stearing them toward Android devices).

T-Mobile can sell this budget friendly WP, and it is a good start. But I hope a slightly higher spec Windows device makes it's way to T-Mobile as well. The Radar is last years hardware, just Verizon's Trophy in a better looking color scheme. The first carrier to offer a W7 phone deserves a high end product.

Nice looking phone but snowgator is right, it is basically a Trophy in a white coat there has to be a higher end WP coming soon fot T-Mo hopefully not at&t
