HTC Titan arriving on AT&T November 20

HTC Titan arriving on AT&T November 20
If you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the HTC Titan, the largest Windows Phone to date, then your wait is almost over as November 20 has been pegged as the release date for the highly anticipated device.

The HTC Titan is a monster-sized smartphone. It runs on the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile OS, Windows Phone Mango. It features a large 4.7-inch S-LCD display and is powered by a single-core 1.5GHz processor as well as 1GB of RAM. While other platforms such as iOS and Android are incorporating dual-core processors in their devices (and soon to be quad-cores), Windows Phone performs quite admirably with the single-core that it has been given.

The back of the device has an 8 megapixel camera that can record video in 720p HD. Around front is a 1.3 megapixel camera that can be used to video chat using Skype once Microsoft integrates their latest acquisition into the mobile platform or the newly launched Tango application.

The HTC Titan will be sold at the familiar price point of $199 with a new two-year activation or a qualified upgrade. November 20 is less than two weeks ago so who plans on picking up the HTC Titan for AT&T?

If I had enough to purchase it outright I would do so. I live a very unfortunate lifestyle. Its fine to have an iPhone with a windows computer, but your completely shafted in multiple places if you're a Mac guy that loves WP7

That works fine for syncing on a hardwire, I would kill for wireless document, music, and photograph porting.

$200 for a single core? LMAO. Not that it matters, WP sells poorly, this phone will be $49 by next year.

There would be absolutely no reason to put a dual core in a WP7 device. The software has yet to be optimized for dual core operating distribution. All it would do is drian your battery faster.

true but also no reason to sell it for same price as a dual core device, also no reason to sell for same price as an apple product. Heck, there's even phones with bigger screens than this now, there's no reason to go with this unless you are a diehard microsoft fan.

Why did you capitalize the "DOWS?" Is that supposed to be funny or clever?

You're buying quality. Thats why it sells for that price. Don't have to be a diehard MS fan to buy this. Just have to be open minded. As for Apple product, over rated and over priced. And this product is not selling within the same league as Apple's.

oi.. gotta learn you guys 1 at a time i suppose.. dual cores are MORE battery efficient than single cores, not LESS. 2 cores doing the same job as 1 do it using much less voltage per core, thus using less battery.. yadda yadda..

okay well then its just android needlessly sucking up the energy… i had my wp7 phone and it was my favorit thing… i wud fosho get the titan if it was on par with ios, but it is not very close at the moment… i dont know if it ever will be because an ecosystm is all about the apps, but by appollo i might conside it again… and dual core does not really matter for windows phone right now… i expect tango will allow dual core and will integrate lte, but i doubt it will eally be needed

downphoenix, the whole idea is that WP isn't an Android, isn't trying to be Android, and will never be Android. The iPhone 4S tossed a dual core in for little to no reson other to say it has it. WP couldn't care even a small little freaking bit about Androids little extra cores. It is fully optimised to give an optimised, seamless OS on it's single core. No lag, no hesitatiion, no worries. With ICS coming, Android will use it's extra power. The Titan will be just fine without core envy. As for sales, it will take a few years to get there. Not to worry. Microsoft is earning a truckload of cash from Android sales. They can afford the wait.

WP7 is not Android. Android sucks... its funny how even a dual core Android lags so fukking much.

So much for trying to uphold an intellectual image of WP7 users.

unless this thing has a massive battery, i wouldnt touch it. Snapdragon + huge LCD screen = massive battery drainer.

remixfa- the Titan has been on sale in Europe for about a month, and all kinds of reviews have been written on it. Just Google, Bing, or Yahoo it. The battery life has been called really good all the way to outstanding. I think Engadget said it lasted well over 14 hours of heavy usage. Crapdragon and all.

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

really?? must have a big battery then. Good. HTC usually puts in "too small" batteries.. always been one of my chief complaints about them. kudos if they are finally taking battery life seriously.

Slight correction, Buddy- Engadget said it got a Day and a half out of the Titan on moderate use. Not sure where 14 hours popped into my head. I read so many reviews I get lost. Slash gear also said the same, so the International version is holding up well. AT&T's version one would HOPE would be as good.

LOL Finally. This phone is nice, a little overpriced probably. WP7 Doesn't need dual core. Oh and to the author, the last line should read "two weeks away" not "two weeks ago".

I am pumped, yes I am. I think the price point on both this and the Focus S should drop 50$ or so, just to get it some momentum. And truth be told, I kinda like the Samsung and HTC Android offerings on AT&T as well as the thought of the Droid 4 on Verizon, so I am not completely sold. But I really, really love the WP experience. I am pumped, in case I did not mention it. Choices are fun ....

every other spec sheet I've seen on this phone it shows to only have 512MB of RAM and this article says 1GB of RAM, anyone know how much it really has?

Price, no problem. Problem, its offered on ATT only. Guess will have to wait till 2012 to see what Tmo has to offer.
