HTC Radar and HTC Titan get official, we go hands on

BGR exclusively reported that HTC would be introducing two Windows Phone 7 smartphones at the company’s European event today, codenamed the HTC Omega and HTC Eternity, and these phones are now official. The HTC Radar is a mid-market device but still features pretty compelling specs for a smartphone that we’d assume would be priced well under $200 with a service agreement. There’s a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3.7-inch display, a 5-megapixel camera and HSPA on board. The HTC Radar feels good to hold and use, and with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango on the device out of the box, it seems like a perfect Windows Phone for budget-minded buyers. Hit the break for our thoughts on HTC’s Titan and be sure to check out our hands-on photo gallery below.

HTC Omega Windows Phone further revealed in leaked image

A newly leaked marketing render of HTC’s upcoming Omega Windows Phone shows off one of the popular vendor’s first Mango-powered smartphones. BGR exclusively reported on Monday that HTC will be announcing multiple Windows Phones at a special event on September 1st. One will be the HTC Eternity, headed to AT&T in the near future, and another will be the T-Mobile-bound HTC Omega, pictured above for the first time. Pocketnow.com published the image on Thursday, and claimed that the phone could launch with the name “HTC Radar.” Omega, of course, is likely to remain a codename. Earlier rumors suggested that the Omega will pack a 1.5GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and an 8-megapixel camera. Rumor also suggests the device will include a 3.8-inch display, though our report indicated a 4.5-inch display size. Judging from the image above, 3.8 inches seems entirely more likely, which could mean that AT&T’s Eternity will sport the monster 4.5-inch screen we’ve been hearing about. We’ll all know for certain when HTC unveils both phones next Thursday. More →
