HTC Titan Windows Phone Smartphone Down To £300

The HTC Titan handset is the biggest Windows Phone smartphone on the market yet and costs as little as £300 at Expansys, SIM free and unbranded

The handset comes with a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 4.7-inch 800 by 480 capacitive display, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an eight-megapixel camera with F/2.2 lens, dual LED flash, BSI sensor, a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera and HD video recording capabilities.

HTC has managed to keep its girth down to only 9.9mm and used a curved body made of brushed aluminium. Other features include a 1600mAh battery, a microUSB port (but no microSD) and Windows Phone 7.5.

Expect the phone - which is a bigger version of the HTC Radar - to last for up to 410 minutes when talking on 3G. Windows Phone 8 - AKA Apollo - is likely to be unleashed later this year and will almost certainly run on that hardware seamlessly.

Whether it is actually a good deal depends on whether you need a large screen. The Nokia Lumia 710 which has a smaller screen with the same resolution and a slower processor costs less than half the price at £130.
