HTC has announced two new Windows Phone 7 Mango devices, the HTC Titan and HTC Radar, previously known as the Eternity and Omega. Both devices are expected to be launched this October, but HTC has not yet revealed their pricing.
The two phones have quite a lot in common, including the single-core processors on the Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset with Adreno 205 GPUs, and the rear cameras with 28mm lenses and back-illuminated sensors. The HTC Titan definitely dwarfs the Radar (above image not to scale), with a 4.7-inch screen next to the latter’s 3.8-inch one – but both Super-LCD displays happen to bear the same WVGA resolution, at 800×480 pixels.
The HTC Titan, on the higher-end of the two devices, stands out for more than just its massive display, featuring a faster processor (1.5GHz instead 1GHz), an 8MP rear camera with dual-LED flash instead of a 5MP camera with LED flash, a front-facing 1.3MP camera, microHDMI port, a secondary microphone for active noise cancellation, and a larger 16GB of inbuilt storage space compared to the HTC Radar’s 8GB.
Other common specs include a variety of connectivity options – HSPA, Wi-Fi 802.11n with DLNA, GPS, Bluetooth v2.1, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Surprisingly, of the two WP7 Mango devices, it’s the presumably-more-expensive HTC Titan that does not come with a document editor, only a viewer. The newly introduced 5-inch Samsung Galaxy Note should make an obvious comparison with it –many of us may wonder if these behemoths have a place in the market, or will they go in the way of the Dell Streak? Let’s just wait and see.
