HTC Titan II: A camera to beat them all?

We first glimpsed AT&T's HTC Titan II at CES in January, but now that it's going on sale April 8 for $199.99, we're spending some quality time with the 4.7-inch beast with its equally jaw-dropping 16-megapixel camera. I will repeat, for emphasis: 16 megapixels!

Windows Phone + LTE = <3

Head cleared from the camera doozy? Good. The Titan II also features 4G LTE, making it one of the first two Windows Phones to do so, the other being the Nokia Lumia 900, which debuts the same day, April 8. This Titan sequel is a definite improvement on the original Titan.

Like the Lumia 900, the Titan II supports 720p HD video recording to go with that camera.

Detailing

HTC updated the original Titan design a bit with this smooth pad along the camera module. The 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera can also shoot video, which is pretty neat.

Out of view behind the back cover, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon 2 processor keeps things ticking, along with 16GB of internal flash memory for your photos and files, and a 1,730mAh lithium ion battery to feed that massive screen.
