Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) launches in India

Microsoft has held a formal event to launch a trio of Windows Phone 7 Mango handsets in India. The launch was held at the Taj Mahal Hotel in New Delhi on Wednesday, where Microsoft India chairman Bhaskar Pramanik announced the impending arrival of the HTC Radar, Samsung Omnia W and the Acer Allegro. The first of the three to land on the Indian market will be HTC's Radar, which arrives next week.

Following that, the Samsung Omnia W and the Acer Allegro will both be inbound in November. While Mangos are an extremely popular fruit in the subcontinent, it will remain to be seen whether Microsoft''s newest OS will appeal to the tastes of the Indian smartphone market.

The HTC Radar is centered on a 3.8-inch display, but which still packs a 480x800 resolution. Its Snapdragon processor is clocked at 1GHz, while it comes with a modest 8GB of memory onboard. Its 3G radio supports 14.4Mbps downstream, for relatively fast browsing.

The Samsung Omnia W features a Super AMOLED display with an 800x480 resolution. At its heart is a 1.4GHz processor matched with 512MB of RAM. It also includes some light Samsung customization with the addition of a Samsung-only e-book client. [via WinRumors]
