IFA 2011 – HTC to launch Titan and Radar handsets

HTC Titan

HTC has announced its two new Windows phones called Titan and Radar at IFA this week. Both handsets are pretty powerful and their names could very well have been taken from the hit 90s TV show, Gladiators.

The smart phones will be HTC’s first to run on Mango OS and both have very very big screens and moulded aluminium bodies that are similar to the HTC Desire.

As you’d expect, the Titan is the more powerful of the two, with a 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of onboard memory and 512MB of RAM. It also has a 4.7 inch “super LCD” touchscreen and an 8 megapixel camera with a 28mm wide-angle lens.

The Radar features the same super lens as the Titan, but with a 5 megapixel camera and a 1GHz processor with 8GB of internal memory and 512MB of RAM.

Both Titan and Radar will be available from October and it’ll be interesting to see how the Radar will fare in comparison to the high-end and super powerful Titan.

  • I think the launching of a Titan and Radar handsets is really great news for all mobile users.I really want this I’ll definitely wait for this.

  • HTC said the two devices, the Radar and the higher-specification Titan, will be available next month first in Europe and Asia. An HTC official said that the Titan will cost €599 (£525) and the Radar will cost €399 (£350) without subsidies.

    HTC is the second company to launch devices running Windows Mango, known as Windows Phone 7.5, after Fujitsu announced the IS12T, which will only be available in Japan.

  • HTC has just announced two new Windows Phone handsets, the much-rumoured Radar and the rather unexpected 4.7in beast called Titan.

    Both phones will running the Mango update to the Microsoft OS which features multitasking and improved search and browsing experiences. HTC was remaining quiet on pricing saying it will be dependent on region and carriers.

  • At a press event in London, HTC has announced its two new Windows Phone handsets – dubbed Titan and Radar – will hit the shop shelves in October.

    The firm is yet to reveal whether the devices are tied to any specific carriers, or cast light on their price points, but both phones – which will be some of the first to run Mango – will initially roll out in Europe and Asia.

  • HTC has released details of its latest contract phones and it’s fair to say that the HTC Radar and HTC Titan have wasted little time in turning a few heads in the tech world.

    Both smartphones, which are expected to be available on mobile phone deals from October onwards, are the first to be unveiled with Windows Phone Mango, the new operating system that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed in May will have “over 500 new features”.

  • HTC just threw two new Windows Phone handsets down on the table and politely requested that we be impressed. The high-end Titan (previously leaked as the ‘Eternity’) is indeed an awe-inspiring brute, wielding a 4.7-inch SLCD display, 8MP rear camera and 1.3MP front-facing snapper to take full advantage of Mango’s newfangled Skype integration. Its over-sized guts include a single-core 1.5GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and up to 16GB of fixed flash storage. Meanwhile, the Radar (which also recently leaked out as the ‘Omega’) comes significantly less pumped in order to meet a lower price point and — we suppose — the expectations of a more mainstream audience. It can be seen as an updated Trophy, with similar weight and dimensions, plus the same 3.8-inch LCD, 1GHz processor clock speed, 5MP rear camera resolution, RAM and maximum 8GB fixed storage.

  • The exolife iPhone battery case is a sleek, protective exoskeleton for the iPhone 4, outfitted with a rechargeable external battery to give your iPhone the extra power that you need.

  • The Titan actually looks nice, but it lost me at 16gb of storage.

    32gb/64gb or GTFO.

    I mean, I have music, photos and HD videos alone that would likely take up 16gb, never mind that that’s on the low side, for me, on music. I have a 80gb Zune that’s nearly full, by way of comparison.
