Cincinnati Bell now offering HTC Radar for $99

The HTC Radar 4G is now available at Cincinnati Bell for $99 with a two-year contract.  The price includes a $50 mail-in rebate, as well a $35 "web special."  That $35 special discount offsets the activation fee of the same price.

If you are one who tends to fear commitment, you can go contract-free for $299.99, after $50 instant savings and a $50 rebate.  Free shipping is also included.

The Radar runs a 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM and 8GB storage, along with a 3.7" screen and 5MP camera.  It is a middle-of-the-road Mango phone, and a favorite amongst our crew.

UPDATE: One of our readers, Gary, pointed out something that slipped by us.  Unbeknownst to us, apparently the HTC Radar is an Android device...or so it says under the Tutorials tab on Cincinnati Bell's site.  We have left a voicemail with their media relations department to make them aware of the faux pas. Thanks, Gary!

UPDATE #2: It looks like word got to the right people.  The good folks over at Cincinnati Bell emailed us to let us know that the Android reference has been removed, along with the entire Tutorials tab.  We would have liked to have seen a similar tab praising WP7 in its stead, but at least potential customers won't get something they are not expecting.  Thanks to Eric at Cincinnati Bell!

Could this mean the AT&T version is not too far off?

Probably not, CincinnatiBell uses the same 3g/4g frequencies as T-Mobile so they end up sharing a lot of the same phones.And unfortunately (for me one of their customers) as a regional carrier, CincinnatiBell does not have the purchasing muscle so they usually end up getting phones six months after T-Mobile, so only waiting a month after T-Mobile is actually a surprise.

$299.99 off contract? **** that's pretty cheap. We're getting the short end of the stick in my part of the world, but it's quite competitive at the equivalent of $400. But at $300 that thing would be pretty unbeatable.
