HTC Radar: Hands-on shots and first impressions

This is the HTC Radar in its white and silver colour scheme. Running Windows Phone 7.5 aka Mango, this phone makes up the second of HTC's two new Windows phones. Design-wise this reminds us a lot of the 7 Trophy from last year and the colour scheme is also very remniscient of the HTC Flyer.

Though it's smaller than the monolithic HTC Titan, it's not what you'd call a small phone. The WVGA screen measures 3.8-inches across and its dimensions are 120.5 x 61.5 x 10.9mm. There's a 5-megapixel camera round the back and a VGA camera up on the top right, for video calls and self portraits.

The processor is a single core 1GHz Qualcomm chip, there's 512MB of RAM and you get 8GB of internal storage bunged in for good measure.

Granted, 5-megapixels and 8GB are Windows Phone 7 standard requirements, but not standards to sniff at; you get a guarantee of a decent amount of storage at the very least.

Like the HTC Titan, the HTC Radar features panoramic and burst shot modes, access to HTC Watch movies on-demand, and a new dock mode, for use with forthcoming accessories.

Full pricing and availability for the Radar haven't yet been announced; all we know so far is that its coming in October. Until then, have a nose through our hands-on pics won't you?
