A couple of weeks back, some of our smartphone-crazed brethren reached out to AT&T regarding the wireless provider’s apparent failure to release software updates to the Windows Phone handsets in its stable, the HTC Titan included. Our brothers in arms were asking specifically about the 8107 update that failed to make it to AT&T handsets, a rather important update at that because it gets rid of the disappearing keyboard issue on the HTC Titan and brings to the fold various security fixes as well.

AT&T responded by saying that the company is committed in releasing software updates to the HTC Titan and other handsets in its Windows Phone lineup. The carrier even confirmed that they are already in the process of evaluating a post-8107 OS update for the handset which will essentially bring Windows Phone Tango or Consumer Release 3 (CR3) to the handset. During the conversation, AT&T let it slip that a significant OS bump is in the offing for users of the HTC Titan and can be expected to happen in the coming months. Sad to say, the wireless provider neglected to mention any specific time frames as to when this will happen, which is almost always the case when it comes to software updates such as this.
The position of AT&T to getting the HTC Titan updated to a post-8107 OS has been reiterated by the wireless provider through its support forums where a Community Manager for the carrier was quoted saying that the AT&T has plans of a Windows Phone update and the said update will contain enhancements associated with the 8107 update and more. As to be expected, no time frame was given yet again but at least, the carrier has already gone twice on the record to support its position about this which somehow solidifies the possibility of the HTC Titan getting some software update love in the near future. The only snag is that users of the handset are back to playing the waiting game until the time AT&T deems it okay to go ahead with the rollout of the software update. In the meantime, we have the specs sheet of the HTC Titan coming right up to keep you company and to give you the chance to get reacquainted with the handset.
The HTC Titan has “titan”-ic dimensions with its frame measuring 131.5 x 70.7 x 9.9 mm which makes it bulky for a smartphone. It is also a bit hefty for its own good at 160 grams. The bulk and heft of the handset can be attributed to its 4.7-inch display which gives the HTC Titan the largest screen real estate in the Windows Phone ecosystem. The operating system of the handset draws power from its QualComm MSM8255 SnapDragon chipset while the responsiveness of the device is courtesy of its 1.5 GHz Scorpion processor and 512 MB of RAM. The storage space of the handset is rated at 16GB while its camera department is comprised of a main 8MP shooter capable of 720p recording at its back panel and a 1.3MP front-facer.
