HTC Radar 4G T-Mobile

The Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update is rolling out today, but if you're looking to get your hands on a new smartphone, T-Mobile will be launching its first "4G" Windows Phone device, the HTC Radar 4G, just in time for the holiday season.

Previously announced for Europe and Asia, the Radar 4G is compatible with T-Mobile's HSPA+ (14.4Mbps) network and features an aluminum unibody design, a 3.8-inch WVGA touch screen, and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. In addition, the Mango handset has a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera, a front-facing VGA camera for video calls, and 8GB of internal memory.
