When the Windows Phone-powered HTC Titan entered the smartphone market, it made a lot of waves given its “Titan”-ic display. Not only that, it also packed impressive components under the hood that gave its users one of the, if not the best Windows Phone experience that a handset could deliver. It was certainly a “Titan” of a phone and is now getting ready to enter retirement with talks of its successor, the HTC Titan II, apparently hitting the shelves of AT&T this coming March 18.
Buy the HTC Titan starting at just one penny!
With the successor well on its way, the price point of the HTC Titan as expected also dropped. In fact, select AT&T authorized retailers will let you have the device for just a penny provided you sign a new two-year agreement with the wireless carrier, thereby effectively making the HTC Titan the best Windows Phone on a budget in the stable of AT&T. This is not to say that the device is already headed towards oblivion because of the sudden drop in its price point. In fact, the handset is still very relevant and just a couple of days ago, it was reported that not only does the HTC Titan pack the biggest display in the Windows Phone ecosystem but its display is also at par with the SuperAMOLED variants commonly found in Samsung devices.
Not only that, the display of the HTC Titan also exhibits exceptional sunlight legibility because of the way the panel is designed and constructed. As it is, there is no space between the Gorilla Glass display and the display panel itself thereby significantly reducing glare and reflection in the HTC Titan even when using it under direct sunlight. And to further prove our point, we have the full details of the specs sheet of the HTC Titan, the best Windows Phone on a budget at AT&T, below for your reading pleasure.
The HTC Titan has been around for quite some time now having reached official status when it was announced back in August of 2011. The handset only made its way to the shelves of the carrier in October and since then has become one of the best-selling Windows Phone of AT&T. The HTC Titan is definitely a titan when it comes to its measurements of 131.5 x 70.7 x 9.9 mm and it tips the scales at 160 grams.
Under the hood, the HTC Titan comes with a QualComm MSM8255 SnapDragon chipset that supplies power to its Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system while a Scorpion processor clocked at 1.5 GHz is paired with 512 MB of RAM under the hood to ensure the smooth operation of the handset. It comes with a non-expandable 16GB of onboard storage while its display of the SuperLCD variant has a diagonal of 4.7 inches and a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It also comes equipped with an 8-megapixel autofocus camera at the back while a 1.3-megapixel video call camera can be found out front.
And at its price point of just a penny with the requisite 2-year agreement with AT&T via select online retailers, nothing can come close to the HTC Titan as the best Windows Phone on a budget at AT&T. Buy the HTC Titan starting at just one penny!
