iPhone 4S Rival Alert : HTC Titan Now Available From £440

The HTC Titan, the biggest Windows Phone on the market, has had yet another significant price cut as it can now be purchased from as little as £440 via Ebay reseller e_cell.

The handset is a brand new one, SIM Free, network unlocked and is covered with a one year warranty.

It has a 4.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, far bigger than the 4.3-inch of the HTC HD7, its predecessor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM and a whopping 16GB onboard storage.

As with all Windows Phone handsets, there's no microSD slot or HDMI port. It sports an eight megapixel camera with a front facing one also and its 1600mAh battery is said to guarantee nearly 12 hours of talk time.

Obviously, this new phone runs Windows Phone Mango which brings with it a number of new features including Office Mobile, Xbox, Zune and dozens of improvements and new features compared to the original Windows Phone 7.

The Titan is the second new Windows Phone handset launched by HTC, the other one being the Radar which is more of an evolution of the previous midrange HTC handset.

No other manufacturer has yet announced a Windows Phone handset with such a large screen, although we wouldn't be surprised if Samsung brings out a Windows Phone version of the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
