"The problem is that we've seen this dozens of times before with Android phones and the Radar looks as if it's 12-18 months out of date. Add to that the slowish processor and low RAM, and it could be a phone which isn't on anybody's Radar."

It's quite obvious that this is not a top-of-the-range device, so it will either find a market based upon how competitively it is priced, or it will not sell. As pricing will not be known until later, the instant dismissal of this device having any merit is disappointing.

I don't feel as if I've completely dismissed the Radar, but rather pointed out the good and bad points of the handset on first viewing. Obviously pricing is going to be a key aspect of how successful this phone is, but my point was that even if it's at the price of a phone like the San Francisco (which it won't be), there is very little reason on the face of it to choose it over a comparable Android device. I may completely change my mind when we review the phone, but on initial impression, it failed to impress.

Definitely agree that there was an overly-dismissive tone regarding the specs of this phone.

As long as it's priced well, there's no reason that it shouldn't be competitive.

+1 to both previous comments.
Looks good, nice camera and features, cool design and the single core is more then enough for a sprightly enjoyable WinPho7 experience.
This is the last straw for me, byebye non-TR, I don't know what happened but I'm breaking up with you.
