Orange UK is set on selling its very first Windows Phone Mango handset - the HTC Radar
Already, we’ve seen pre-orders available for the upcoming Mango filled HTC Radar thanks to online retailers like Amazon UK and Clove UK, but now it’s looking like Orange UK will be selling the smartphone as well.

Being their very first Windows Phone 7 Mango device, Orange UK customers will have a lot to look forward to with this one since it packs some impressive specs for something that’s significantly smaller in size versus the HTC Titan. In fact, it’s going to be launching at the lovable free on-contract price with most monthly plans. However, there is still no concrete release date attached to it just yet – albeit, we don’t think it’s going to be a long wait.

Right now, potential owners can sign up to get the latest updates about the HTC Radar – like an actual launch date. Just a refresher, the HTC Radar features a 3.8” WVGA S-LCD display with Gorilla Glass, 1GHz single-core processor, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, 720p video recording, front-facing VGA camera, 512 MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage.

I just tried WP7 today at the shops (again, i've already had the omnia 7, just thought i'd try it again). Still WP7 has the ugliest UI i've seen. Black, white and square...reminds of DOS.

And Bada looks like a Fisher Price-designed interface (kinda like XP and Vista), iOS is a boring array of static icons, and Android has no identity by nature (well...Sense comes to mind). What's your point? Choose your OS based on ease of use, and functions that you care about. Some of us like WP7 and find that its limitations are a non-issue.Some prefer the happy zen that is iOS. Other still love the versatility of Android.'s a non-zombie TouchWiz.

a couple of months ago apple users were said to be the biggest fanboys on earth. nowadays there are more and more bada fanatics... really annoying!

5. Mozart unregistered

I'm unsure as to why I would choose this phone over my Mozart. The only things I can see are the super lcd screen, and a front facing camera. I don't think i'm going to be upgrading any of my phones until I see the Nokia range, they're what i'm being most excited about.
