The HTC Radar – The Beauty of Live Tiles
Currently, the most popular Windows Phone is the Nokia Lumia 800. Nokia has spent a lot on marketing and advertising on their new handset after all. However, unlike the entry-level handsets in Nokia’s roster, the Lumia 800 still costs a lot of money. If you’re looking to enjoy more from Live Tiles, there is an alternative that will not cost you an arm and a leg. This is the HTC Radar.
If you’re not familiar with the Windows Phone platform and its Live Tiles, you must be wondering what the fuss is all about. With this unique interface, everything that matters is right in front of you once you boot up your phone. Let’s take a closer look at what Windows’ Live Tiles has to offer.
What can be seen on these tiles? Of course, one will show you missed calls or incoming calls. Unlike in other platforms, only a small icon on the top of the screen is shown whenever you miss or receive a call. Here, a tile shows whose calling or who you have to call back. There is also a tile specifically for text messages.
Modern smartphones allow users to check on their emails on the go. This is exactly what Windows Phone has to offer. Again, instead of a small icon found on the top of the display, a designated tile shows you all the information you need to see. On the HTC Radar, you will get see anything from personal to work emails wherever you may be.
With this smartphone, you will never have to look for a PC to check on social network updates. All you have to do is take a look at the home screen to see what you friends are up to. You never have to go anywhere else or launch a special app to check on social network updates.
Multi-media are now an essential part of smartphones. This is exactly what the HTC Radar has to offer. In one of the Live Tiles, you gain quick access to your photo album, videos, or even your music library.
If you’re into gaming, there is one tile that you are definitely going to find interesting. This Live Tile on the HTC Radar will give you access to Xbox Live. Here, you can take advantage of all the latest game titles the offering is known for. You can even compare scores or achievements with friends.
Of course, these tiles are in no way fixed. You can customize what you wish to appear on every individual tile on the HTC Radar.
