Aaron takes an in-depth look at the HTC Radar 4G, T-Mobile's first 4G Windows Phone and a nice mid-range smartphone option on the carrier.  Radar 4G packs a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 3.8-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities, a front-facing camera (take that, Nokia Lumia 800!), and Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango).  It's available now for $99.99 with a new agreement.  Is it the phone to get this holiday season?  Part 1 of 2.

Thanks for your participation! :)

Brandon Bucem Morris gettin the focus flash sometime soon.
Hubert John Abiera HTC Radar is my choice :) I love the feel of the phone and the f2.2 lens is a great addition to a mid-range phone. I've had mid-range and high end Androids before and I have never had a smoother experience. Also, I just love the MetroUI. It's so clean and is just a beautiful new touch to the smartphone game. Haters are gonna hate, but I'm still gonna love my Windows Phone.
Chad Allen I wont give IOS and my iphone 4s up but i will say the windows phones are better than androids buggy faragmented mess
Ryan Anton HD7. Best phone that I have ever bought. Simple, sophisticated UI, not a crazy thin-pretty-but-easy-to-drop but ergonomic design and a great screen. It runs so smoothly compared to all of my 'droids.
