The long-rumored HTC Radar is one of the two new Windows Phone devices, the other being the HTC Titan
, that the manufacturer officially announced today. On our hands we have a decent mid-range device built with multimedia and entertainment in mind while delivering the very latest that Microsoft's mobile platform has to offer.
As speculations have been predicting for months, the HTC Radar comes equipped with a 3.8-inch display boasting a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. Something that the rumors could not nail, however, is its processor speed – the device packs a single-core Qualcomm processor clocked at 1GHz, not a 1.5GHz silicon as some were predicting.
Moving further down its specs sheet, the 5-megapixel camera on the Radar's back should excel at taking photos under most conditions as it has an F2.2 aperture allowing plenty of light to hit the sensor, and its front-facing VGA camera should come in handy when you are in the mood for a video chat.
In terms of software, the HTC Radar comes with Windows Phone Mango out of the box. Internet Explorer 9, multitasking, Skype support, social network integration, and a plethora of other features are all on the platform's list of improvements. Besides all these goodies, Music and Video Hub powered by Zune will be keeping your favorite tunes and flicks at a tap's distance.
Unfortunately, we cannot really say when the HTC Radar is bound to hit the market, neither how much it will cost upon its launch, but if it is shaping up to be a smartphone that you'd like to own, feel free to drop a comment for us below and let us know.
