#mobiradar – Mobilink HTC Radar Launch Event
As discussed in a previous post, Mobilink announced Pakistan’s first Windows Phone Mango device, HTC Radar a few days ago. On November 30, the device was finally released in an exclusive meet-up with bloggers. The meet-up was held in Bistro 201 and was attended by more than 50 prominent bloggers of Lahore.
Saad Hamid from Mobilink and Mr. Naeem Tabish, CEO Brightex gave a presentation about Windows Phone Mango and HTC Radar.
Mr. Naeem focused more on HTC Radar and demonstrated some specific functions and improvements of HTC Radar like better camera lens and HTC Locations.
However, we already knew that:
HTC Radar’s intuitive OS allows its users to consolidate their contacts at one place (People Hub) and interact with them via text or IM simultaneously. The wonderful Facebook and Twitter integration in the very core of Mango is unparalleled and offers a complete social experience.
It was pretty obvious that the CEO of Brightex had not use the phone before and came with little or no preparation. Hence his presentation was quite boring and disappointing. He missed on the tight integration offered by Mango and features like Voice Commands and search in applications which were not present in Windows Phone 7.
Mr. Tahir from Microsoft gave the best presentation of all and announced various incentives for new developers looking to develop apps for Windows Phone.
Finally Rizwan Anwar won HTC Radar from Mobilink by solving an interesting set of numbers which represented four devices which have been launched by Mobilink in the past. The event ended with Microsoft and Brightex giving shirts, mugs and hampers to all and a nice dinner at the roof top.
