HTC Radar Announced; Runs on Windows Phone Mango

HTC have just announced a couple of Windows Phone Mango phones at their on-going event in London. Firstly, the company ¬†announced the much more portable, Radar. The handset comes with a 3.8-inch S-LCD screen with WVGA (800×480) resolution.

The Radar is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, while an Adreno 205 GPU handles the GPU department. The handset has 512MB of RAM on-board, along with 8GB of internal storage, of which only 6.54GB is available to the end-user. Since, WP7.5 Mango does not support microSD card slots, the extremely low internal memory is going to be a concern for many future Radar owners.

Other than this, the Radar features the usual run-of-the-mill Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS with A-GPS, 3G/HSDPA support, and a bunch of sensors. Like the Titan, the Radar also comes with a decent camera, albeit with a lower resolution. At the back of the Radar is a 5MP camera with F2.2 lens, accompanied by an LED flash. There is also a VGA camera in the front. The phone is also capable of playing back and recording 720p HD videos.

Like the Titan, the Radar runs on the latest version of Windows Phone, Mango. Beside the improved SoC and cameras, the Radar is just another run-of-the-mill handset. Most of the caveats of the first generation WP7 phones like the lack of full HD video recording, no display resolution higher than WVGA, and no microSD card slot still remain.

HTC did not announce anything about the availability and pricing of the Radar.
