HTC Radar and HTC Titan – HTC has released details of its latest contract phones and it’s fair to say that the HTC Radar and HTC Titan have wasted little time in turning a few heads in the tech world.
Both smartphones, which are expected to be available on mobile phone deals from October onwards, are the first to be unveiled with Windows Phone Mango, the new operating system that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed in May will have “over 500 new features”.
That was some claim indeed from Ballmer, so what’s the big deal concerning the Radar and Titan?
Well, let’s start with the Titan and with a name like that it’s a handset that was never going to go unnoticed. And there’s certainly no danger of that happening as the Titan comes complete with a massive 4.7-inch screen with 480×800 resolution, which is the largest of any Windows Phone and makes it perfect for watching videos on such a striking display.
The rest of the spec is pretty impressive as well. There’s a 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera to produce high-resolution snaps and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera to enable video calls. HTC’s catchy PR slogan for the Titan – “unlike anything you’ve ever held before” – also certainly rings true, although rest assured it’s anything but bulky despite the humongous screen.
Next up is the HTC Radar, which is similar in shape to the Titan except for the fact it’s crafted out of one single piece of polished metal. Looks-wise, the Radar and Titan may have plenty in common, but when it comes to spec they differ slightly. The Radar has a 3.8-inch touch screen with 480×800 resolution, 1GHz processor, 8GB of storage, 5-megapixel camera and again a front-facing camera paves the way for video calls via Skype.
The Titan and Radar will leave existing Windows Phone users with an interesting dilemma. Do they upgrade? Or get a Mango update for their existing handsets?
Details of the HTC Jetstream tablet have also come to light over the past few days, with features including a 10-inch screen and a 1.5GHz processor.
