If you are not impressed by the latest Android and iOS offerings you may want to check out a new Windows Phone 7 smartphone, well today we can finally confirm details regarding AT&T’s HTC Titan release.
The official AT&T website has revealed that as of November 20 the HTC Titan will be available for $199.99. Perhaps it’s most noticeable feature is the massive 4.7-inch display, this will be great for Microsoft Office-related tasks and obviously perfect for watching movies on.
So what else are you getting for your money? Well, the Titan runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango out of the box and features a 1.5GHz single-core processor, 512 MB RAM, an 8 megapixel camera on the rear, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB of storage (maximum of roughly 12GB available to the user), WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 1600 mAh battery – you can see full specs here.
When compared to some of today’s dual-core powerhouses it is hard to see the Titan selling well, however Windows Phone 7 differs greatly when compared to Android and iOS in terms of requirements, in fact it runs very well on relatively mediocre hardware. What we are trying to say is don’t be too put off by the 1.5GHz single-core chip, in reviews Engadget and TechRadar had nothing bad to say about battery life or general speed.
Currently AT&T also sell the Samsung Focus for the same price as the proposed price as the HTC Titan, with a less impressive camera, smaller display, slower processor and no front-facing camera we think that the Focus will drop in price soon – the Titan is a much better option.
