HTC Titan Narrowly Beats Nokia 800 In Benchmarks

An anonymous source has performed a full set of tests on the HTC Titan and the Nokia 800, the soon to be announced Windows Phone 7.5 handset from the Finnish manufacturer.

The test results, published by the Next Web, show that the Nokia 800 is narrowly behind the HTC Titan when it comes to CPU but holds its own in Memory and Storage tests, which indicates that the Nokia 800 uses NAND rather than an SD card (in a microSD card slot).

Both handsets use the same Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255T SoC but the one on the Titan is slightly faster at 1.5GHz compared to 1.4GHz. The phone - which has just been announced at Nokia World as the Lumia 800 - also lacks a front facing camera.

The HTC Titan was launched at the beginning of September and can now be found for a mere £440. It comes with 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage and a massive 4.7-inch screen with a WVGA capacitive screen.
