HTC Radar 4G, LG DoublePlay Appear On T-Mobile Website As “Coming Soon”

While we’re definitely riding on an Ice Cream Sandwich high right now, T-Mobile has posted both the HTC Radar 4G and LG DoublePlay up on their website as “coming soon.” We’re not sure when exactly these surfaced, but given their presence we can’t imagine either phone isn’t on course for an upcoming launch. Current rumors, based on the roadmap we posted at the beginning of October still peg both phones for a November 2nd launch though we hope T-Mobile has accelerated those plans.

It’s been a long time since Windows Phone 7 fans on T-Mobile received anything new to be excited about so we’re definitely on board with T-Mobile releasing this one sooner rather than later. The DoublePlay is a different animal with its two screen approach and claims of super multitasking abilities. The unique design is one we’ll have to get our own hands on before coming to a verdict but we’re certainly going to keep an eye on how it performs to see if other manufacturers might try LG’s bold approach to two screens.

As a bonus, we’ve included the press images for the HTC Radar 4G, although you can just watch one of the many hands-on videos floating around the web for a better look.

    Any guesses what the retail pricing will be sans upgrade discount?

      i doubt it will be less than $499.  Right now the HD7 is an awesome deal at $299

        That’s what I’m expecting, though hardware wise I believe it uses the same chip the MyTouch 4G used when it was released last year.. It’s designed to be a mid-range phone, but T-Mo may charge a high end price anyway, off contract.

        I wonder if Magenta will be getting the grey version of this puppy.

          It’s high-end for Windows Phone devices and yes it is the same processor (2nd Gen Snapdragon) vs the 1st Gen Snapdragons on current WP7 devices.

        “awesome deal at $299″….. are you kidding me?  That price isn’t going to do what Microsoft needs done over the next 12 months in order to stake a solid claim in the phone O/S war.

          $299 retail is a great deal. That is not the contract price

    Give me $149 after rebate and I’ll be happy.  Unless of course we get the Nokia Ace in which case I’m ready to spend $249 after rebate.

    I have yet to find a live demo of ANY windows phone in my area despite it being a year old… Does windows phone put bloatware and carrier-specific bloat or do they tend to be more like Apple with respect to verizon’s iphone has the same software as AT&T??
    Live units in the Baltimore (Woodlawn area) are few and far between (even corporate stores that say corporate right on the sign–all dummy versions) –But very curious about the bloat and carrier-specific add-ons.  Is that common on a Windows Phone?

      There is some bloatware in the HD7. Like T-Mobile family room and T-Mobile TV. BUT, you can uninstall them. Pretty sweet.

    It’s time to start squeezing out any rumors regarding Nokia WP7 phones headed for T-Mobile. Many of us are waiting…

    • sandytoes

      They are coming next year. T-mobile is gonna be first to get them. Followed by everyone else. A Nokia rep went to my store like a month ago and told us. She said around January or so…

      I wanted to know this too I think the Nokia x Windows phone team is going to make some of us Android and IOS heads believers in 2012. I for one am looking to purchase a Nokia WP7 possibly in 2012 great hardware x great software = perfect match

    Can’t wait to ditch my G2x for the Radar. I’m also tired of Android.
