AT&T’s HTC Titan now available online: the biggest display on WP, yours for $199.99
AT&T’s gigantic (but hopefully not titanic in destiny) HTC Titan went up for sale online on Sunday just as promised and it’s got the biggest screen on a Windows Phone handset, a 4.7” SLCD panel nested in a sleek, under 0.39” (10mm), unibody design. The Titan underlines Microsoft’s big (literally) message conveyed with the six-storey high Windows Phone installation that lit up recently for a day on Times Square.

Apart from being big, AT&T’s HTC Titan is also pretty capable both in terms of pure processing power with a 1.5GHz single-core chip and in photographic terms with an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.3MP front-facing snapper. 

Sadly, the big screen can’t match heavyweights like the iPhone 4S and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus in terms of resolution and pixel density. Despite its 4.7-inches diagonal, the Titan has a resolution of 480x800, which wouldn’t be too bad on a small screen, but seems a bit underwhelming when applied to a 4.7” canvas.

If you can overlook that, though, the Titan promises to reward with the usual buttery smooth Windows Phone Mango experience. The HTC Titan price stands at $199.99 when you sign a two-year contract with AT&T, while off-contract it retails for $549.99.

Most reviews of the international version of the Titan are fairly happy with the screen and it's resolution. There is no way around the fact that if you pinch to zoom to a great degree you will see the limitations that you won't in the other heavyweights that Victor H. pointed out. But, only on extreme close ups. Otherwise, the screen has been reviewed as vibrant and enjoyable.

As a WP fan, I am just happy to have decent choices. The Titan and the Focus S are exciting (Hey, Phone Arena- where is the Focus S review already???) and the Focus Flash is a great budget phone.

This phone is going to be awesome. I hope Verizon starts carrying it. Enough said.

Hmmm, there is an att store LITERALLY across the street from my front door, I gotta check this bad boy out! 480x800 is not bad, I have a droid X I play with, it has the same resolution and looks great.
