Review: HTC Titan II for AT&T
The T2 has a significant number of AT&T- and HTC-branded apps pre-installed. In the Marketplace app, both AT&T and HTC have their own storefronts where you can poke through the few apps developed by AT&T and HTC that aren't already installed. HTC hasn't gone to the same lengths of Nokia, for example, to create a solid set of exclusive applications for its WP7 handsets. Still, the Marketplace has more than 80,000 apps from which to choose.
Bluetooth works exceptionally well on the T2. It paired easily with all devices. Phone calls sounded excellent through both mono headsets and my car's hands-free system.
As with all WP7 devices, I don't care for the time/date on the lock screen. It's not easy enough to see when you're outside or anywhere that's too bright thanks to the white font. There are no ways to control or alter the position of the clock on the home screen.

The T2 has AT&T Navigator and Microsoft's Bing Maps on board. The AT&T Navigator, which costs $10 per month to use, works well for planning routes. Bing Maps isn't quite as good for live navigation, but is excellent when used as an exploratory tool to see what's nearby. The GPS radio in the T2 works great, and consistently located me within 15 seconds. In NYC, it pegged my location down to the foot.
