Tech website IGN has named the HTC Radar 4G Windows Phone one of the best smartphones of 2011. It joins the iPhone 4S, Motorola DROID Razr and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as the best smartphones for the year.
IGN doesn't get into why they choose the HTC Radar but we won't disagree with their choice. We have been impressed with each of the new Windows Phones that have hit the market over the past few months and the Radar is not an exception.
From the quality 3.8" screen to the uni-body design, many will find the HTC Radar appealing. It is a base or entry level Windows Phone so we can't knock it for having 8gb of storage but recognize that some may want a little more storage.
With the Samsung Focus S reaching CNET's Top Five list, the Nokia Lumia winning the What Mobile Award for Mobile of the Year, IGN's ranking of the HTC Radar and the Windows Phone OS taking the Know Your Mobile Operating System of the Year award it would appear Windows Phone is getting a healthy share of the spotlight.
