Dictionary.com defines the word Titan as, “a person or thing of enormous size, strength, power or influence.” And sticking strictly to that definition, the HTC Titan that was released November 20 on AT&T’s 4G HSPA+ network certainly deserves its name. With the largest screen of all Windows Phone smartphones, and one of the largest in the entire smartphone marketplace, the HTC Titan is not a small handset. However, HTC has done an excellent job keeping the handset as small as possible considering that large screen size.
Buy the HTC Titan starting at only $79 for upgrades, $99 for new accounts, and only one penny when you activate a new line on an existing account.
The HTC Titan measures 5.18 x 2.78 x 0.39 inches (131.5 x 70.7 x 9.9 mm) and weighs 5.64 ounces (160 g), and while those overall dimensions make it typical in size for a 4G handset, the weight is approximately an ounce and a half heavier than average. The Titan also runs the Windows phone operating system, which is the mobile phone equivalent of the Windows PC OS. The version running on the Titan is the latest, version 7.5 Mango.
That 4.70 inch display delivers visuals in 16 million colors and 480 x 800 pixel resolution.

Auto display adjustment is performed by the built-in light sensor, and the on board proximity sensor shuts the device off when not in use to conserve battery life. The industry average run time for a 4G handset is 8.0 hours, and the HTC Titan provides an above average 11.83 hours on a single charge, as well as 15 days standby. Talk time drops to 6.83 hours when using 3G.
