You may have already been able to get a Windows Phone
device in India without too much trouble, but Microsoft has only just now made things fully official -- complete with Windows Phone Marketplace, voice recognition support, and a trio of Mango
devices. That includes just the HTC Radar
initially, which will be available next week for the local equivalent of $490, while the Samsung Omnia W
and Acer Allegro (believed to be the same as the W4
) are set to follow sometime in November. Of the three, the Allegro is said to be the cheapest of the lot, and there's also some reports that it will launch in Europe for €299 (or roughly $400) off-contract. Those curious about the Radar can check out our review
from a few days ago.
