Orange Clearing Out HTC Radar Smartphone For £100

Orange has started a massive clearout of the HTC Radar which can be had instore only for £99.99 plus a compulsory £10 topup.

The mobile phone operator has removed the handset from its online store meaning that it now doesn't have any HTC Windows Phone handsets on PAYG.

The phone - which is powered by Windows Phone 7.5 Tango - was only released in October 2011 and is essentially a Windows Phone version of the Android-based Desire S. It has a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM and only 8GB onboard storage.

As expected, there's a 3.7in 800 x 480 pixels S-LCD capacitive display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass, a five-megapixel camera with a secondary VGA one, microUSB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi GPS plus a 1520mAh battery.

The price of Windows Phone handsets has tumbled down significantly over the past few months. We first witnessed how the likes of the LG Optimus 7 E700/Jil Sanders dropped to around £150. Then Vodafone dropped a bombshell with a £120 Nokia Lumia 710 before Orange cleared out the Radar.

All in all, these price drops position the Windows Phone as a price sensitive, value for money platform on par with Android.
