HTC Radar 4G is finally going to show up here in the US next week. T-Mobile's Facebook page has revealed that it will begin selling the HTC Radar 4G, the first smartphone that's being sold with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 inside as the default version, for just $99.99. Of course, that price is for a new two year contract along with a $50 mail in rebate.
Now that lots of Windows Phone 7 users have gotten their "Mango" over-the-air update and and are now running Windows Phone 7.5, we should soon see if Microsoft's next major version of its mobile operating system will actually sell some new smartphones. The HTC Radar 4G is certainly a good start in terms of hardware. Neowin gave the phone an 8.5 when we recently reviewed it. You should really check out our super extensive hands-on look at the phone right now.
We do have a concern that at the moment, only T-Mobile is selling the device here in the US. Let's face it, the wireless carrier is struggling to stay relevant after not being able to sell the iPhone and hopes to be acquired by AT&T.
Of course, the big Windows Phone 7 news is coming early in the morning on Wednesday when it's expected that Nokia will officially begin to show off their own smartphones running the operating system.
