Just yesterday we gave AT&T users a much needed update on the status of the Samsung Galaxy Note device which will land with 4G LTE support, but now we have an update for another highly anticipated AT&T launch – the 16 megapixel touting HTC Titan II smartphone.
There has been a lot of interest in this Windows Phone device ever since it debuted at CES 2012 – and rightly so since it packs a mammoth 16 megapixel sensor which consumers have yet to see on a mainstream smartphone.
At CES, there was no indication of a set date for when the device would be landing on AT&T, but information obtained by BGR reveals that March 18 could be the day when the handset becomes available. The information has come from an apparent leaked AT&T roadmap which also coincidentally reveals that the Nokia Lumia 900 will be launching on the exact same date as well. If the details are true, then we have to say that AT&T are well and truly back in the game and catching up with Verizon with some great smartphone exclusives.
We’re not sure about you, but there still seems to be an overwhelming sense of unfinished business with regards to how Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform has panned out so far. Obviously Microsoft are not on the same level of success as iOS or Android so far, but the upcoming Titan II and Lumia 800 still proves that AT&T are willing to stick it out with Windows Phone OS. Consumers usually have positive words to say about HTC’s build quality of smartphones, so the Titan II may well turn out to be the standout device this year for both AT&T and HTC.
The disappointing aspect for us is that single-core processor, but the 16 megapixel spec may prove to be too tempting to turn down for those who love to take pictures on their phones. Are you keeping your eye on the HTC Titan II this year, or are you going to save your cash for one of HTC’s upcoming quad-core smartphones?
