HTC’s videos touting its Radar WP7 handset are sleep-inducing

Now that the HTC Radar is out, named, and spec’d, it was only logical that the company would release a few teaser videos to tout the phone before its October launch. These videos serve to fire up the fans of the mobile line, gauge reaction to the hardware, and possibly get the word out to the non-hardcore types. In theory, at least.

However, the videos that HTC put out for its Radar phone are more than weak, they provoke the feeling that someone must have left half their budget on the cutting room floor. Even more, their slow pace, corny on-screen effects, and annoying voice over completely dull the effect that the information delivered might have had.

You can see the video on youtube. there are 2 videos on youtube.


1. HTC Radar – A design that makes you look good

2.      HTC Radar – Unmissable entertainment

On an only informational level, the videos suffice. But in every other category they are beyond a letdown. Sorry, Windows Phone fans, your phones are still not as cool as the iPhone. Blame marketing.
