The HTC Radar is now available in Canada from Cincinnati Bell. The handset comes at $99, which includes a $50 mail-in rebate and a “web special” discount, which is a special offer allowing to get a free internet package activation. Got interested? Note that you will have all this only if you sign a two-year agreement with the carrier.
If you want to go contract-free, be ready to purchase the handset for $299.99 with $50 savings and another $50 mail-in rebate. Plus you will get free shipping in the territory of Canada.
The HTC Radar was first introduced in the US by T-Mobile. This is a good chance for Canadians to get this awesome Windows Phone Mango device. It sports a 1.5 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of ROM and 8 GB of storage capabilities. Like other mid-range WP devices, the Radar comes with a 3.7 inch display and a 5 megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash.
Oddly though, the list of features includes Android as the OS of the handset, and the handset can’t be introduced by another OS. I believe this is a big omission.
