Microsoft/HTC unveils two new phones with Windows Phone 7.5.

Microsoft and HTC have officially unveiled two new phones powered by Mango, the latest major update of Microsoft's mobile operating system. Mango is not officially out yet as device manufacturers are busy customizing it for release in October. As of now, HTC is the second manufacturer to reveal their starting lineup. Fujitsu is the first manufacturer to have launched a Windows Phone Mango in Japan recently. With October only a month away, we should expect to see more and more devices. Now back to HTC and their starting lineup.
The first of the devices is the HTC Radar crafted from a single piece of polished metal. The radar sports a 3.8" WVGA capacitive touch screen, a 1 GHz Qualcomm processor, and a pitiful 5MP camera. Unfortunately, there is no release date. I almost forgot, the Radar is white.
The HTC Titan plays at another level with a huge 4.7" touch screen, a 1.5 ghz processor, an ultra-slim 9.9mm unibody contoured design. The Titan has a 8MP camera.

For me, the choice between these two devices is quite obvious. The white color of the Radar is already a repellent. But it's nice to see that both devices have front faced camera. So Skype should soon make its way to Windows Phone Mango.

Now, has anyone seen a Nokia out there?
