HTC Radar 4G caught on camera with T-Mobile logo printed all over
posted by Nick T. / Sep 22, 2011, 4:40 AM
Ever since the HTC Radar got officially announced, plenty of evidence has been popping on the web showing that the smartphone is bound to go on sale in the UK. On the other hand, whether it would ever make it across the Atlantic has been a question with no definite answer so far.
However, here come a handful of spy photos shedding some light on the matter. It seems like T-Mobile will be offering the smartphone in the US and will be marketing it as the HTC Radar 4G. That is what becomes apparent after a quick inspection of the shots since the T-Mobile logo is basically all over the device. The T-Mobile TV icon in the apps list and the carrier's support web page in the settings tab are present as well.
Phone platform with the Mango update pre-installed. A 1GHz single-core chip provides the processing power and a 3.8-inch WVGA display graces the smartphone's front. Other goodies include a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera, a front-facing shooter, and 8 gigs on on-board storage.For those who need a refresher, the HTC Radar runs Microsoft's Windows
Sadly, when the HTC Radar 4G will hit T-Mobile shelves is still unclear. Yet again, having all this photographic evidence on our hands means that we might be hearing an announcement from the carrier in the near future.
- Display 3.8" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S2, Single core, 1000 MHz

"he “4G” suffix in the handset's title is, of course, justified by its 14.4Mbps HSPA radio." That is not 4G ??? The Wave 3 also has 14.4 mbps, and that is not called 4G ? Maybe it is the US carriers that are doing a bit of lying to their customers...

Well if someone here in Europe markets a 4G phone that is not really a 4G phone ... you probably know what will happen :) We all will lough our asses out :D That's why the only do it in the states ;) They can't sell that crap to us...

Hey, Peter, thanks for pointing that out! Yeah, there is a lot of marketing involved that blends the barrier between true 4G phones and the ones that don't quite make it that far.

It's nice to see that writers actually do care about readers. You just showed it buy responding to Peter's comment.

This is completely devastating. I REALLY thought this phone would come to Sprint. When I heard one popped up in the states as branded a 4G device it just seemed like it would be Sprint since Sprint only has 1 windows device. It's really upsetting to see nothing but android on your lineup of phones.
