First Look: HTC Titan (AT&T)

2:36 /

The HTC Titan's big, beautiful design and impressive features make it one of the better Windows Phone offerings on AT&T.

I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor, for CNET.com and this is a first look at the HTC Titan for AT&T Wireless. It is one of the first Windows Phone Devices to shoot with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. As you can see here, the HTC Titan is appropriately named. It's an absolutely massive phone with a 4.7-inch diagonal display. It is quite tall and wide as well around 5 x 3 inches. However, the phone is quite slim and is easy to hold because of its sloped sides. On the back is an 8-megapixel with a dual LED flash. On the front of the phone above the display is a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The overall build quality of the phone is very good. It's built out of a very nice feeling metallic material. That gives the phone a very polished and premium feel in the hand. On the front like I said is a 4.7-inch display. It has VGA resolution that's 800 x 480 pixels. As you can see, it's really bright and colorful, very vivid and vibrant as well. As a Windows Phone, the HTC Titan has a number of cool features like access to Xbox Live as well as support for Zune Music. The HTC Titan has a number of extra features specific to HTC. That includes HTC Hub, which is an interesting hub of information for weather, news, feeds, and more. You also get access to HTC Watch, which is HTCs video and movie rental service. Like all Windows Phone devices, it also has internet explorer and tight integration to Windows Live ID. You get a very good integration with Facebook, Twitter; all manner of social networks as well. The HTC Titan has a 1.5 gigahertz Qualcomm processor. We think that was quite useful in making the phone very zippy and snappy to navigate. One cool thing that HTC added to the Titan was a panorama shot mode with the camera. The HTC Titan retails for around $200 with a new 2-year service agreement with the AT&T. I'm Nicole Lee and this has been the first look at the HTC Titan.
