HTC’s LTE Portfolio Expands With Fourth LTE Smartphone; Latest Windows Phone from HTC to Run on AT&T’s 4G LTE Network in U.S.
The HTC TITAN II is HTC’s first Windows Phone to run on a 4G LTE network. Available now to AT&T customers, the smartphone includes the largest display among Windows Phones, an advanced 16-megapixel digital camera and access to 4G LTE speeds.
“HTC’s history of innovation in 4G technology includes delivering the first 4G-powered devices to each major carrier in the U.S., so it is exciting to continue that leadership with our first 4G LTE Windows Phone, the HTC TITAN II,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corp. “This full-featured smartphone combines HTC’s design with AT&T’s high-speed 4G LTE network and Microsoft’s powerful Windows Phone software, giving people more of what they crave.”
The HTC TITAN II comes equipped with a brilliant 4.7-inch super LCD capacitive touchscreen display for an optimized viewing experience when watching movies, playing games or enjoying photos and videos. The HTC TITAN II offers quick and easy access to the latest movies and TV shows via HTC Watch and on-the-go gaming with Xbox LIVE.
Packed with advanced imaging technology, the HTC TITAN II features a 16-megapixel camera with a wide-angle lens, autofocus, dual LED flash, red eye reduction, image stabilization, a backside-illuminated sensor and a physical camera button, offering a viable replacement for digital point-and-shoot cameras. The HTC TITAN II delivers a number of features that HTC has developed to help consumers capture photos in a variety of conditions; for instance, panoramic shot for sweeping landscapes and burst shot for action photography. The smartphone also enables 720p HD video recording with the rear-facing camera, as well as on-the-go video chat over Wi-Fi with its 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
“Here you’ve got a device that takes everything great about Windows Phone and places it on the most high-quality gigantic device in the field. HTC knows what they’re doing when it comes to delivering top-class smartphones, the HTC One series for Android is proof of that. This device isn’t quite as premium as the HTC One series, as it turns out, but it’s certainly one of the nicest all-round Windows Phones on the market,” reports Chris Burns from Slashgear.com. “You’ll have quite a time choosing between the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II – and you’ll want to hold both of them before you pop your credit card out. The Titan isn’t as iconic as the Lumia, but it’s got its high points. HTC is here for the long haul with Windows Phone, and the experience they’ve delivered here does more justice to Microsoft’s vision for smartphones than any that have come before.”
Access to AT&T’s speedy 4G LTE network paired with Qualcomm’s 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S2 processor, enables the HTC TITAN II to deliver fast web surfing, streaming and downloading. This new powerful smartphone also features a 1,730mAh lithium ion battery to support the robust mobile experience on one of the fastest 4G LTE networks.
The HTC TITAN II enhances connectivity, efficiency and productivity for busy consumers with its large on-screen keyboard and instant access to Windows Phone Office Hub, Microsoft Exchange 2010 and Outlook Mobile. The Live Tile display brings friend and family groups to life and delivers the latest updates and news from popular social networks directly to the home screen. HTC TITAN II customers will also be able to download a number of exclusive HTC applications for free within Windows Marketplace through HTC Hub.
The HTC TITAN II is expected to become available exclusively from AT&T in the U.S. in the coming months.
