HTC Radar available October 1st?

Phones 4u, a U.K. website, is reporting to have an inside track or lead on getting the new HTC Radar. A lead that is expected to land the Windows Phone on their shelves on October 1, 2011.

While most of the press release from Phones 4u deals with an Android release, Scott Hooton, Trading Director at Phones 4u did share this tid bit.

"Our customers want the very best and latest in mobile technology, and so its important that we’re able to offer them only the very best smartphone range, the very latest technology and value for money. Our ongoing and successful working relationship with HTC means we’ve been able to add even more great smartphone exclusives to our widest ever range of exclusive white devices we’ll be offering across contract and prepay this quarter.."

According to the press release, as a result of their successful relationship with HTC, the Radar will be a hero product for Phones 4u in store from 1st October. Pricing is reported as "free from 26 pounds a month on a choice of networks". 

Granted this is a European release but you've got to hope that the sooner Europe gets these new Windows Phones, the sooner the U.S. market will.  You can read the full press release after the break.  The Radar information is towards the bottom.

Clove is offering the HTC Radar for £285 (ex. VAT) and the Titan for £498 (inc. VAT) with pre-orders for international shipping. It states that first stock is due early October, which confirms the 15th date set on Amazon. Among the feature icons found on the product page is DLNA, FF camera and more. Looking good!

On a quick funny note, it seems as though one can pick up the Radar for £0.00 including VAT. So the taxation of the product is actually reimbursing the customer the price. We know it's a mere error but still caused a few giggles.

HTC Radar appears on the radar

We've seen ads for the HTC Titan and Radar over at Amazon.com's UK site and now we are seeing the HTC Radar make an appearance on the UK mobile phone site, IntoMobilePhones. While there isn't an out of contract price listed for the Radar, the monthly rental is running 26.88 Pounds (about $44 U.S.). The out of contract price, while not listed, has been reported to be $568 U.S on the Amazon.com listing.

The interesting part of the advertisement is the availability date. The Radar is currently being offered as a pre-order with stock expected around September 20th.

If true, the Radar will be available long before the "first of October" date we heard at the London unveiling. There is a double asterix after the date which likely means "give or take a few weeks" just in case supplies are delayed.

While we published a summary of the evening, we haven't yet posted our capture of the main presentation and the unveiling of the HTC Titan and Radar. Feast your eyes on the above video. The atmosphere and music through the presentation and handset videos was superb, you could sense the excitement in the audience (even though we still believe some were expecting Android devices).

Philip Blair, vice-president of product and operations, was the bringer of much happiness and unleashed the charged crowd onto the demo tables (it reminded me of the Spanish bull run).

Huge thanks to Alex Dobie from Android Central for coming along and capturing the footage!

Start those countdown clocks boys and girls, as the HTC Titan and Radar are now listed on Amazon UK's website. Fetching for the quite hefty £529.99 ($860) for the Titan and £349.99 ($568) for the Radar, the SIM free devices are set to be released on October 15th--just a few short weeks away.

Of note is the fact that Microsoft is officially calling this Windows Phone 7.5 to differentiate from first-gen devices. Guess old habits are hard to break.

The HTC Radar promo video

We've seen the promo for HTC's new Windows Phone the Titan and now we have the promo video for the HTC Radar (aka Omega). Still not sure on the silver/white color pattern but will admit it's growing on me. The twenty second video doesn't reveal much but does leave you wanting to see more.

The chin is also baffling. Reminds me of the old Android phones but so much Jay Leno styled.
