HTC Titan – Giant Screens R US
Do you like your screens to dominate your phone?
Personally I love a good sized screen with funky gorilla glass protecting it from scratches and knocks while still affording me the best possible user experience for the size.
So…If you are like me, you may well love the new HTC Titan, a Windows 7.5 phone based device that is a big muscled cousin to the HTC Radar.
When I say bigger, I mean this in every way possible, faster processor, bigger screen, the lot:
So how big and how powerful?
The new HTC Titan will deliver an eye dropping and trouser bulging 4.7 inches of screen real estate with a slightly disappointing WVGA resolution, it is however rumoured to be a very responsive screen and while not the best resolution for the size it appears to be pretty damn good anyway.
Processor wise you will get a 1.5 Ghz Snapdragon chip which will run your new Windows Mango device, and from reports on actual use it appears to multi-task really well as you would expect.
With a huge 8 mega pixel camera, the HTC Titan is keeping up with the Jones’ on size and resolution, it is also surprisingly light for a phone of its size, coming in at 31 mm x 70 mm wide and 9 mm thick, the phone is also only 160 g in weight.
The manufacturers and designers at HTC are doing Samsung like tricks in their new range of mobile devices by keeping power, size and weight balanced nicely.
So there you have it, HTC are not just stepping into Windows phone territory tentatively, they are bringing some real smartphone contenders on to the smaller O/S that has a lot to prove. It appears that this Windows Mango update is going to be a real competitor to iOS and Android now the likes of HTC are firmly taking things seriously. I wonder what Samsung are going to do with their own BADA O/S that they seem to be talking about more and more of recent, now that it appears that little bit more crowded in the mobile device O/S space?Anthony Munns
