Review: Motorola Titanium
With few Android options on the Sprint Nextel iDEN network, the Titanium offers a well-rounded set of features and solid performance for most tasks.
The hardware is well designed and works as it should, though perhaps it isn't as rugged as some may like. The keyboard is a welcome addition, and even more so since Motorola did such a good job with it.
The Android 2.1 system software is a bit limiting, and system performance was a bit slow, but the Titanium shines when it comes to calling, signal, and battery performance. Even the extras, such as the camera, perform well.

As with all iDEN-based phones, data performance is abysmal. A significant number of smartphone buyers do so for the mobile data capabilities. The Titanium doesn't deliver speedy mobile data. You'll have to seek out Wi-Fi for that. If you don't mind waiting a bit, though, the stock Android browser and Opera Mini browser are capable tools.
In the end, the combination of PTT powers, Android software, and the full QWERTY keyboard may be all that you need to convince you that the Titanium is worth the upgrade. As long as you don't mind slow data performance, it is a solid phone from Motorola.
