HTC Announces Radar and Titan Smartphones Running Windows Phone Mango

HTC kicked of September in style by showing off their hot new Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) smartphones – Radar and Titan. The two smartphones will be available starting in Europe and Asia and spreading globally in October 2011.


The Radar is an aluminum unibody design that HTC has been doing with the Legend and Flyer. It sports a 3.8 inch screen, weights 137 grams, 1GHz processor, 8GB internal storage, 5 megapixel camera with  F2.2 lens and LED flash, VGA front camera, 720p video recording, and 3G up to 14.4 Mbps download and 5.76 Mbps upload speed.


The Titan is a step up from the Radar in almost every way, except weight. It comes in at 160 grams versus the 137 grams of the Radar. Otherwise, it’s thinner at 9.9mm, has a larger 4.7 inch screen, a more powerful 1.5 GHz processor, more internal memory with 16GB, an 8 megapixel camera with F2.2 lens and dual LED flash, a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera, 720p video recording, and 3G up to 14.4 Mbps download and 5.76 Mbps upload speed.

The Titan is a larger and more powerful phone than the Radar, but sadly it still only has 16GB of storage. I don’t know why HTC decided not to up that to 32GB. That would make it a very attractive phone with a larger screen, fast processor, and loads of memory. Personally I like the Titan more than Radar, but I was really expecting to see second generation devices with more memory. Guess it’s up to Samsung to delivery larger memory now.

    Memory must be abundant for the mobile devices. It is always useful to access and carry data on mobile phones. On reaching the memory threshold, no matter now multi tasking or multi functional the phone is, the user longs to have the data on hand when required. Nice comparison for the Titan and Radar. Though I stand by the Titan!

    So,… it’s October 2011. Has it spread globally to Canada yet?

      Nope. :(

      The Titan is starting to hit the streets in the UK, but there’s still nothing here. Word is that AT&T offer it, so it shouldn’t be much longer. Of course, that’s not Canada. No mention from any of our carriers on if/when they will ship this.
