HTC TITAN and Radar Windows Phones Officially Announced
HTC officially announced two new Windows Phone Mango smartphones last night at their event in London, the HTC Titan and Radar.
The HTC Titan (pictured above) is the ‘Omega’ smartphone that we’ve seen quite a few times recently. This phone aims to replace the HTC Mozart, a middle-of-the-road Windows Phone that was released last year.
Looking like an identical yet shrunken-down HTC Flyer, the HTC Titan features the same aluminium unibody design, crafted from a single piece of metal. Screen size is 3.85-inches and of the Super LCD variety, while under the hood you’ll find a 1GHz Qualcomm processor to keep things running fast.
On the back of the handset you’ll find a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, and there’s also a VGA front-facing camera for video calling, perhaps with Skype.
The HTC Titan also features Wi-Fi, 3G, DLNA for wireless file sharing, Bluetooth, 8GB of onboard storage, digital compass, proximity sensor and of course, the latest Windows Phone Mango operating system.
Additionally, every HTC Titan smartphone comes with a neat little gloss white dock, which when the phone is connected, automatically triggers a special ‘docked mode’ on the phone itself.
The HTC TITAN is the new flagship Windows Phone for HTC, boasting a huge 4.7-inch WXGA Super LCD screen that makes the likes of the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S II look tiny and dull.
We’re pretty certain that the TITAN is the HTC Eternity that was leaked a few days ago along with the HTC Omega.
In keeping with all specifications being BIG, the TITAN features a zippy 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage for games and media goodies.
There’s also Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HSDPA and DLNA connectivity, a Micro HDMI socket, 8-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera for video calling.
Despite boasting a very impressive specifications sheet, the HTC TITAN still manages to be just 9.9mm thick, an impressive feat for a phone of this size and stature.
As with the Radar, the HTC TITAN will run the latest Windows Phone Mango software which includes over 200 new features and improvements. HTC has added some new features to work with Mango, including Panoramic Sweep and Burst modes in the Camera app.
Both the HTC Radar and TITAN will be available in the UK at the beginning of October. So far T-Mobile is the only network to confirm they will be stocking the TITAN, though both Orange and T-Mobile will definitely be stocking the Radar. O2 are still undecided on both phones.
