Titan Tips the WP7.5 Scales In HTC's Direction
HTC today announced its new flagship Windows Phone 7.5 Mango smartphone, which boasts a Titanic-sized 4.7-inch WVGA (800x480) display. This massive smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core SnapDragon processor and includes up to 16GB of storage for media. It comes with an 8-megapixel camera with F2.2 lens, autofocus, dual LED flash, and 720p video capture. It also has a 1.3-megapixel user-facing camera. Other features include GPS, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, 5.1 surround sound, a bevy of sensors, and HSPA+ 3G at 14.4Mbps down and 5.76Mbps up. HTC has expanded the presence and scale of the HTC Hub, which can be used by customers to snag HTC-developed applications. It also interacts more seamlessly with Microsoft's Zune content store, where video and music content is available. The HTC Titan will become available in European markets first. HTC didn't immediately say if the Titan would be sold by U.S. carriers, but the Federal Communications Commission recently approved a variant of the HTC Titan with support for WCDMA in the 850/1900MHz bands. These are the same bands AT&T uses for its HSPA+ network, though AT&T hasn't announced that it will sell this device.
