In addition to running Windows Phone 7.5, the Radar has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8GB of internal storage (no expansion slot), and a 3.8-inch WVGA touch screen. Also, though Microsoft restricts the amount of customization an OEM can do to the software, HTC has made some enhancements to its HTC Hub.
