    I love that no one ever posts in WP7. I don’t have to hear complaining about underperforming specs or whatever. Anyways, I’m excited for this phone. I want it, just concerned about the smaller screen size. Wish it had the 4.2 in. (?) of the HD7.

    • Zifnab2k

      I dunno, i’ve been on a 4.3″ now for a while, and I sort of miss the 3.8 size. It’s a bit more comfortable in the hand.

    Well well… first I plug in my HD7 and get the update notice and now this.  My apologies to T-Mobile and the others the frequent this site for all my whining.  Seems T-Mobile was on point after all. :)

    • Realcool2000

      Hahhaa you have to plug in your phone to get an update….android gets them wirelessly….come to think of it…what kind of wireless phone needs to use a wire to get an update….oh windows phones…

    So this is a last years phone but with a FFC and Mango.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Matthews/100000189923615 James Matthews

      Not really.  It has a faster CPU/GPU as well.  My only complaint is the 3.8in screen.  Kinda gotten used to having the 4.3in of my HD7.

    Thats nice, we get a 1ghz phone with QVGA front camera while AT&T gets two 1.4ghz 4.5″ or bigger monsters.

    Not saying it will be slow but I want to be prepared for Apollo.

    Ok nice and I like it BUT T-Mobile need to Announce HTC Titan 4G to keep me as their customer.

    • http://twitter.com/gunsing Geo Carranza

      same here! but idk if they r going to get it, so for now I guess ima have to get the radar =/

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Matthews/100000189923615 James Matthews

      Well T-Mobile has always carried Nokia so perhaps we will see the first Nokia Mango device coming our way.  Only thing is that it will likely not have anything bigger then a 4in screen.  Still, It should be a better device then the Radar.

      Who the hell asked you to comment buddy. keep that to yourself.

    • William Cron

      Every review of Windows Phone 7 has stated it is a totally different beast from previous the Windows Mobile OS. So the 2000 reference is completely ignorant. Try actually using a WP 7 before trashing it.

    So does this phone have an S-LCD or not. Hands on vids make it look like it does but, speck sheets beg to differ. If it is I’ll make the jump.

  • Guest

    So basically its a G2 sans keyboard and a Windows OS.

  • nerdlust

    If windows did flash videos or converted I would make the switch. The software is so smooth. I was set on getting a dualcore android but after using a windows phone I can honestly say they are amazing. I will have to compare gs2 and amaze and radar hopefully titan is released on tmobile, then make finally decision

    • John

      You can’t go wrong with Windows Phone. I just updated my HD7 with Mango upate today and I can’t tell how much exciting and full of features now.

      It also even faster and smoother than before. I really recommend you to get it. You will love it.

  • William Cron

    Looks like I’m going to have a lot of fun come January. Hopefully T-Mobile is still carrying the HD7 at that time. I’d love to get both WP7 phones side by side and play around with them a bit. The more I see of this phone the more I’m liking it.

    • Anonymous

      I think the HD7 has reached end of life as its been removed from my store’s floor and we have no stock. From a town hall meeting in chicago, are CEO was there and stated we should see more Windows7 phones in the future as TMOBILE will be “going to bed with them” not his exact quotes but you get what I mean. Look for more Windows7 products down the pipeline is all I can say;)

      • William Cron

        Well, if the Radar is the only WP7 phone available, I can certainly live with that. Whoever is maintaining T-Mobile’s twitter feed said that they have no information on it being EOL’d, but also gave a similar statement about new devices coming all the time. Hopefully a second WP7 phone pops up around January.

    Thanks Smith. I went searching and came up with conflicting confirmations. Some reps at the launch event state it as a feature and some just say LCD hahahaha Oh and gorilla glass too.

    Well I hope they get the Titan too! If not I’ll sit on the sidelines for this one. Or at least give me an option not just one WP device. Tmo,you keep calling me to upgrade(two times in the past week!), you might want to give me something I’m interested in.

    Just joined the tmobile team. Been thinkin about a WP for awhile. Hopefully we get a bigger selection over the next few months.

    • Tbyrne

      Welcome on board friend. A word of warning though. There are Trolls around here who will trash pretty much everything you might find positive about T-Mobile & TmoNews. Just keep your head above water and tread lightly and you’ll do just fine.

    I really would like to get an idea of when this thing will release.  It says pre-holiday season, but I’ve heard October as well. What do y’all think!?

    Mmhhh, I need a good windows phone in my life!

    Will this be running on T-Mobile’s 14 or 42mbps “4G”  network? 
    Anybody know?

    • anonymous tipster

      It is running on T-Mobile’s 21mpbs “4G” network.

      • anonymous tipster

        *14
        don’t know where I got 21 from.

  • INormL

    The phones not a computer so the difference in day to day use between processors is minor, or at least not enough to simply dismiss the phone. Mango on my HD7 runs buttery smooth so while a dual core processer might be nice I’m not sure it’s necessary for this Operating System. I think I may be the only one not upset about the 3.8″ screen, I was looking forward for a WP7 phone in this size so it’s perfect for me since sometimes I feel like I’m carrying a brick in my pocket. I am upset however on the fact that this is our only choice. At&t is offering the HTC Titan, Samsung Focus S, Focus Flash. It’s too bad that we don’t have a Super AMOLED phone since the screens is far superior to any other screen type we carry IMO. WP7 is a great new option for customers and it’s a shame that we don’t offer customers more of a variety compared to the overwhelming options we have with Android. I’m looking forward to the Radar I just wish my customers had more of a choice since I’m sure many will want try this OS but on a phone with a bigger hard drive and screen.

    I estimate that the HTC Radar will sell very well for Tmo.  And if we the Tmo customers demand for these kinds of hi end products, hopefully corporate executives will start opening their brains a little and say to themselves, “Wow! Maybe we should bring more of these kinds of products instead of that stupid looking LG Double play!”
