HTC has unveiled two new handsets, the Titan and the Rader, adding to its growing family of Windows Phone smartphones.
The Taiwanese giant announced the pair at its IFA 2011 press call in Berlin as it gears up for the holiday rush and imminent launch of the Mango iteration of Microsoft’s OS.
Leading the charge is the Titan, which lives up to its namesake with a 4.7-inch Super LCD touchscreen, a 1.5GHz processor and an eight-megapixel rear-mounted camera – all housed in a slick 9.9mm aluminium shell.
This is followed by the Radar, which rocks a 3.8-inch display, a 1GHz processor and a five-megapixel snapper with LED flash and HD recording (a front facing VGA is also on board for video calls). Alas, this only comes with 8GB of onboard storage with no microSD slot to speak of, meaning it's almost certainly aimed at the lowed end of the market.
Hardware differences aside, both phones will run Mango out of the box, which reportedly brings more than 500 new features to the platform, including multitasking, Internet Explorer 9 and an all-round smoother, faster user experience.
They also come with HTC Watch, a proprietary movie rentral service, as well as deeper integration with Microsoft’s Zune music service and Xbox Live.
Both handsets are scheduled for UK release sometime in October. Pricing and carrier details should be announced in the weeks to come.
