The HTC TITAN II is the first Windows Phone to combine a stunning 4.7-inch WVGA Super LCD screen, an industry leading 16MP professional quality camera, and the blazing fast speed of AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The full-featured smartphone has an industry-leading camera that makes it easy to capture and share high-quality photos. A 16 Megapixel rear-facing camera delivers an abundance of detail and the specialized image processor delivers superior image clarity and exposure in every picture. The dedicated camera button and image stabilization allows the user to click, point, and capture high-quality images with minimal effort while the back-illuminated sensor enables higher-quality photographs in low-light environments. Along with the 4.7-inch display, 4G LTE, and DLNA support, the TITAN II makes viewing and sharing pictures as easy as taking them.

The TITAN II also brings a rich set of adjustable settings allowing photography enthusiasts total control over their pictures, including shutter speed, ISO setting (up to 1600), white balance, brightness, contrast, saturation, and sharpness. Software-assist options include red eye reduction, image stabilization, metering mode, and flicker adjustment.


What are the major differences between the original TITAN and this version? First, HTC has the TITAN II running full throttle on AT&T’s speedy 4G network. Second, the engineers increased the camera megapixel size from 8 to 16MP for higher quality images to share with family and friends. The TITAN II also has a slightly larger battery than it’s predecessor (1730mAh vs. 1600mAh).

AT&T Network

With AT&T’s 4G HSPA+ network, you’ll enjoy mobile broadband speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T’s already fast mobile broadband network (learn more below). You also get the AT&T Mobile Hotspot service built right into the smartphone–enabling you to connect additional Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the phone’s mobile broadband signal (requires appropriate data plan). This GPS-enabled phone can also access the AT&T Navigator service for turn-by-turn directions.

Note: AT&T’s 4G mobile broadband coverage is not available in all areas. 4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul; availability increasing with ongoing backhaul deployment.

Vital Statistics

The TITAN II weighs 5.2 ounces and measures 5.12 x 2.76 x 0.39 inches. Its 1730mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 4 hours of talk time, and up to 12 days (GSM) and 10 days (UMTS) of standby time. It runs on AT&T’s LTE (700/AWS MHz), UMTS Tri-band (850/1900/2100 MHz), and GSM Quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) .

The Power of Windows Phone 7.5

The Windows Phone 7.5 operating system has been designed to help you do more in fewer steps, and keep you updated on the things that are most important to you.

You can customize the Live Tiles on your Start Screen with what you care about–from people to web sites–and they’ll continuously scan the web to keep you updated about your world at a glance.

Improved Live Tiles.

History view.

Windows Phone 7.5 also brings together the things you use most on your phone in six Hubs: People, Pictures, Office, Games, Music + Video, and Marketplace. Grouping them in Hubs like this lets you get to what you need, quicker, because you don’t have to jump from apps to the web to contact lists.

The latest release of Windows Phone–version 7.5, codenamed “Mango”–has hundreds of improvements and new features. Here’s just a sample:

Multitasking: Now you can keep your place in a game while reading e-mail or listen to music apps while texting. Many apps can run in the background, so you don’t need to shut one down to use another–plus you can switch between open apps in a flash.

Improved Live Tiles: The Live Tiles on Start dish up more (and quicker) updates on your apps, and they’re also a whole lot of fun–the Pictures Tile animates with a slideshow of your favorite snapshots and Group Tiles flash your friends’ latest updates.

Threads: Start with a text, and finish in Facebook or Messenger chat (or vice versa). The whole conversation stays in one thread, and all it takes to switch back and forth is a tap.

Send a text with your voice: With Speech, you can text, search the web, and lots more, totally hands- (and sometimes eyes-) free. Your phone can even read you an incoming text, and then you can use Speech to dictate and send your reply.

Find nearby restaurants, shops, and things to do with Local Scout.

Local Scout: Powered by Bing, Local Scout teams up search and mapping to show you nearby restaurants, shopping, and activities in a single tap.

Driving directions: Your Windows Phone can get you where you’re going by showing you on the map or giving you directions from where you are.

More social networks: Twitter and LinkedIn are now built into Windows Phone, so practically everything you do on your social networks is a tap away. Windows 7.5 also includes new ways to filter all those new contacts and their social updates.

Persistent camera settings: Now if you change camera settings–for instance, photo resolution, brightness, or another option your phone manufacturer might have included–you can save them for the next time you use the camera.

History view: Contact cards now show the history of your recent calls, e-mails, texts, and chats with the person. Just tap in the list to return the call or go to the thread.

Visual voice-mail: See your voice-mails in a list, then listen to them on your phone.

Sync with SkyDrive: You can sync your Office docs between SkyDrive and your phone, so you can edit them on your phone now, then edit some more on your computer later.

AT&T 4G Network

What is 4G?

4G is a wireless technology term meaning “Fourth Generation.” 4G follows 3G as the latest addition to AT&T’s mobile broadband network. When combined with enhanced backhaul, 4G means faster speeds, where data transfers take less time to complete. AT&T has upgraded the software of its nationwide mobile broadband network with HSPA+ which, with enhanced backhaul, enables speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T’s already fast mobile broadband speeds. And now, AT&T is evolving to even faster 4G speeds with the launch of AT&T’s 4G LTE technology in select markets.

Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T’s cell towers with AT&T’s backbone network that provides access to the Internet.

How does AT&T 4G differ from other 4G networks?

AT&T is the only network offering two layers of 4G technology: HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul and LTE, both capable of delivering 4G speeds. Customers will have access to fast speeds as they move in and out of 4G LTE areas. Customers of competitors who do not have HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul are likely to see a steep drop-off in speeds when they move out of LTE areas.

In areas where either AT&T’s 3G or 4G network is not available, you’ll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.

Optional AT&T Services

AT&T Navigator: This premium GPS navigation application includes audible turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates and re-routing options, and 3D moving maps (additional charges applicable). AT&T Navigator offers several other features to make your commute more enjoyable and reliable, including mobile access to You’ll be able to find the closes ATM, restaurant, gas station, Wi-Fi hotspot and more with over 10 million business listings.

AT&T FamilyMap: Locate any phone indoors or outdoors on the AT&T Network. FamilyMap provides peace of mind by being able to conveniently locate a family member from your wireless phone or PC and know that your family’s information is secure and private. Want to verify that your child arrives home from school each day? Set up a Schedule Check to automatically get location information sent to you via text message or e-mail.


Ultra-fast 4G connectivity via AT&T’s LTE or HSPA+ network (with enhanced backhaul). Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking (802.11b/g/n) for accessing home and corporate networks as well as hotspots while on the go.

    HTC redesign makes an already good phone into a great Phone! The HTC TITAN was a very good smart phone. I could quibble about a couple of things but it was a unique well thought out design. Well HTC went back to the drawing board and redesigned it for the TITAN II and it made (IMHO) it into the best Windows Phone yet if not the best phone period. Now, let me just state that to start off with that I believe the new Windows phone is the most elegant, user friendly, operating system with its unique operator interface and the fact that its not more well...

    love this phone i work as an iPhone & Android developer so I was interested in checking out Windows Phone to see about bringing my company's app to the platform. I put down my iPhone and picked up this guy. I am absolutely IN LOVE with this phone. I think my coworkers are going to shoot me if I don't stop talking about how awesome it is. When I pick up an iPhone to do development on it just seems so slow and ancient... Windows Phone is an amazing OS and the Titan II is a fantastic piece of hardware. I have an...

    HTC Titan II is a solid smartphone that will complement the new Windows 8 OS for PC and Slate... A few weeks ago, I attended a technology presentation at my job where I saw a demo of the new Windows 8 operating system that will be available on both Windows PC's and Windows slate tablets. Instead of using the traditional screen icons, the new Windows 8 OS interface uses color coordinated tiles that are suppose to make it easier for users to navigate to information.
