HTC® Radar 4G: New Smartphone that supports HSPA
HTC Radar 4G, a Windows Phone offering from T-Mobile, was recently made available for review at the San Diego CTIA event that gave people a peek at the device. The most notable thing about the smartphone is that it supports HSPA . The phone features Windows Phone 7.5 or Mango, being the first update to mobile OS of the Microsoft. Although this update is already sent to certain Windows Phone handset users, none of them have a mobile OS at present, other than HTC Radar 4G.
The design of the phone is also impressive. It has unibody aluminum build, similar to several high-end HTC smartphones. The color scheme of the phone is all-white, which is highlighted by strong colors of the Mango.
Also, HTC Radar 4G is the first smartphone that runs Windows Phone Mango OS, supporting T-Mobile HSPA 4G network. But, like HTC Amaze 4G smartphone and Samsung Galaxy 2, it does not support HSPA 42 network. The phone supports HSPA 14.4, which is a little slower than other networks of T-Mobile. Apart from all these features, observers have noted that this phone has all the basic features that are expected from a smartphone.
The phone has a 1GHz Snapdragon microprocessor, a 3.8 inch LCD display screen, and a 5 megapixel camera. It also has a front-facing camera. HTC has not said anything when it will release the phone officially.
