It is loaded with a Quad band GSM/ BPRS/ EDGE support, a dual band 3G with HSDPA 14.4 Mbps and HSUPA 5.76 Mbps, with a Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS running at its core. 1.5 GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon CPU, Adreno 205 GPU, 512 MB RAM are some of its appreciable inclusions.

With a 8 megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED flash, 28 mm wide angle lens, F2.2 aperture and BSI sensor, the HTC Titan also contains a Hardware camera button for capturing that perfect piece of art. Also of mention is the 720 video recording @ 30 frames per second and ample 16 GB of built in storage that round up the camera.

A standard 3.5 mm audio jack is the sound department’s easy pride in designing this WP7 smartphone. A standard microUSB port for charging, Wi Fi b/g/n, stereo Bluetooth 2.1, a built in A GPS receiver are added bonuses one would expect while buying the HTC Titan.

A Mobile Office document viewer or editor, social network integration and cloud services, a stereo FM Radio with RDS, and an HTC Hub and exclusive HTC apps are what sums up the phone’s features.

Despite all the beautiful and alluring features, the HTC Titan also has some minor setbacks. The screen being gigantic in size stretches the resolution a little thin. The storage is non-expandable and no mass storage is permitted. It neither supports native video calls, Flash, Silverlight, nor DivX/XviD video support and runs and supports only Zune files.

But the HTC is an impressive camera phone and is no slowpoke with its 1.5 GHz processor. The Metro UI and WP interface offers novel software experience. The mango update has enabled multitasking and improved the overall experience, enabling some add on to a package already running solid Office and Organizer credentials and a deep social network integration.

The HTC Titan is fast, responsive and well connected. The OS is a great improvement and the camera is well above the HTC standards. The Titan is one phone which only solidifies the HTC’s reputation as a Windows Phone partner, at the same time enabling Microsoft to make a transition to social and media centric from its usual strictly business pattern.

The Titan lives up to its name. With dimensions 131.5×70.7×9.9mm and at 160g it is one great phone to hold. The slimness and good use of space around the display, makes the HTC one good smartphone available in the market.
