2 September 2011, Singapore – HTC Radar, the latest Windows Phone smartphone was unveiled today. It is designed to keep you close to the people, news and entertainment that matters to you most. It will be available through at all mobile operators and authorized retailers in Singapore in October 2011 at a recommended retail price of S$569.

The 28mm wide-angle lens allows you to capture more of the scene in front of you. You can also take panoramic shots of skylines and landscapes. Your videos will also be in bright and vibrant HD (720P). The HTC Photo Enhancer lets you touch up pictures and upload them to Facebook, tag your friends as you use the automatic face detection built into Windows Phones.
This new feature from Windows Phone keeps you up to date with your friends’ latest news showing all of your communication history with each person, as well as their recent social network updates and photos. You can also stay in touch using SMS, Facebook chat and Windows Live Messenger in one conversation, without having to switch applications or disrupt the conversation flow.
