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.
