Microsoft is somehow focusing of their smartphone OS these days. And if your familiar with the upcoming Microsoft Windows 8, it has a metro-style start screen which is adopted from Windows Phone 7 OS. Last year, we saw a massive increase of smartphone users are since then, we are sure that the trend will continue this 2012.
You’re maybe thinking that smartphone with Windows Phone OS is expensive. That’s why people tends to choose Android, but not until today. As the sales of smartphone rises, their prices starts to drop too. If you want to try Windows Phone OS, you can get your first on a HTC Radar (Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango).
Just like the Nokia Lumia 800, Lumia 900 and N9, HTC Radar was also crafted from a singular piece of material. In HTC Radar’s case, it’s aluminum. It also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass display. Check out some HTC Radar features and specifications below:
