Is the HTC Titan III a yet to be announced Windows Phone?
File this in the “pure speculation folder,” but an Xbox Live Rewards survey started the conjecture. Every month, participants in the Xbox Live Rewards program get a survey from Microsoft which allows them to earn points which may be redeemed for goodies down the road.

Something odd appeared in December’s survey. On question 3 which asks the user how excited he or she may be to receive any of a list of smartphones. On that list is the Apple iPhone 5, Motoroloa Droid RAZR MAXX HD, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC Titan III. HTC Titan III?

Back in June, we caught word about a leaked Windows Phone device roadmap from HTC. On that list was the HTC 8S, code named Rio, the Accord which is the Windows Phone 8X, and the Zenith. The Zenith was thought to be the upper scale model of the bunch, featuring a 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD 2 screen, 8MP camera, and a top-end Qualcomm processor, rumored at the time to be a quad-core unit.

Word was that the Zenith would be available by Christmas. Since we have not seen a trace of this device in any way shape or form, and no mention of it was made at the Windows Phone 8 event in San Francisco, we will safely assume that the survey reference was merely a typo and the survey option should have read the "HTC 8X" or something. Perhaps the device was shelved or never existed. Besides, all the Windows Phone 8 devices run the same dual-core processor.

We could speculate all sorts of ideas, but instead we will let you determine your own fantasy. So, if you were to read between the lines, what would you think about the idea of a sequel to the HTC Titan II

Is it a typo, or will HTC surprise us with a new Windows Phone?
