HTC Radar Price Philippines, Specs, Features : Affordable Windows Phone, In the Flesh Photos!

Considering that Microsoft has already expressed its intention to spend a billion US dollars to promoting Windows Phone this year and that the number of apps in WP Marketplace is growing steadily by the day, I believe the platform will finally start to gain more popularity and fly off this 2012.

If you want to own a Windows Phone ahead of the others but aren't quite keen on spending a fortune on the handset, this could very well be the smartphone for you:

HTC Radar, in the flesh!

Elegantly crafted from a singular block of aluminum, HTC Radar brings you closer to the important things in life with Windows Phone 7.5's People Hub. People Hub keeps you up to date with your friends and love ones' latest social networking site updates and photos, and shows all of your communication history with them. The hub also lets you stay in touch via SMS, Facebook Chat and Windows Live Messenger all in one conversation, without the need to switch apps that disrupt the flow of conversation.

A true multimedia device, HTC Radar comes with a 5 MegaPixel autofocus camera with flash and an HD video recorder. For gaming, there's XBox Live and for music, movies and TV shows, you can always use Microsoft's very own Zune and even HTC Watch.

HTC Radar was officially announced in the Philippines last December 2011. Yesterday, I walked around the mall and asked a few cellphone shops regarding the current price of the handset. The sales peeps told me HTC Radar sells for around Php 18,000, which is not bad at all. So check it out.
