HTC Titan: Things you need to know
The HTC Titan certainly lives up to its title, boasting some serious hardware and dimensions to boot, here's what you need to know about the mammoth Windows Phone 7 handset
HTC have unveiled two brand-new handsets this week in the form of the HTC Titan and the HTC Radar, both running Windows Phone 7 and both sporting HTC's trademark unibody design. While the HTC Radar goes for a smaller form-factor with its curvy white design, the HTC Titan is out to impress.
1/ Camera: The HTC Titan is one of the first handsets to have HTC's new revamped 8MP snapper on board. After some criticisms over the quality of the cameras on HTCs handsets it appears as though the company has really listened offering up a 28mm F2.2 lens allowing you to get more picture. There's also a Panorama function, much like the soon-to-arrive Sony Ericsson Sweep Panorama which lets you take full panorama images.
2/ Screen: At 4.7" the HTC Titan's SLCD screen is the largest screen HTC has made for a phone and is also the largest screen you can get with Windows Phone 7 running on it. Despite this HTC has managed to keep the dimensions realistic, reducing the bezel size so that the screen dominates the front of the phone.
3/ Specs: With a huge 1.5Ghz single core processor and 512MB of RAM you're unlikely to ever find the Titan slowing down. In keeping with Windows Phone 7 requirements, the HTC Titan doesn't have a micro-SD slot, instead offering up a substantial 16GB memory built-in.
4/ Multi-tasking: While more a Windows Phone 7 Mango feature, the ability to multi-task is highlighted particularly well on the HTC Titan's huge screen. With a simple pane of windows showing open applications, swapping between apps is a breeze, with the screen showing off in clarity what you've got running.
5/ HTC Watch: One of the new additions to both Android and Windows Phone 7, HTC Watch lets you stream film trailers and download entire films for viewing later. Most effectively shown on the new HTC EVO 3D, HTC Watch is perfectly suited for the even bigger screen of the TItan.
