At CES 2012 HTC announced their first Windows Phone to run on AT&T LTE network. The HTC Titan II (previously dubbed HTC Radiant) is packed with features. Â The Titan II has a massive 4.7 inch LCD screen.Â It also boasts a 16 megapixel camera with wide angle lens (which is the most megapixels available on a smartphone). Â It comes with autofocus and dual LED flash. Â The camera has options to help get the most out of the high quality camera such as panoramic shots and shooting for action photography. It also has a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera which is great for video-chatting. M0vies and TV shows are readily available from HTC Watch. Â On the go gaming is also available with Xbox Live.
The Titan II has a Qualcomm S2 snapdraggon single-core processor. Â The device currently runs Windows Phone Mango (7.5). Â It has a large onscreen keyboard and access to Â Windows Phone Office Hub, Microsoft Exchange and Outlook Mobile. Â There will also be HTC exclusive applications available in the Windows marketplace.
While it has many upgrades from its predecessor I am not sure how popular this phone is going to be with just a single core processor. Â Consumers are looking to the speeds of smartphones with dual-core processors, especialy with the rumored release of a HTC Quad-Core phone later on this year. The Windows marketplace is not an exciting app-store as they do not have the same “usual” apps as the Android Market and Apple Appstore. Â I am anxious to see how the quality of the pictures come out with the 16 megapixel camera.
There is no pricing and availability on the smartphone yet.
