HTC Titan Now Down To £250

If you are after a large screen smartphone that uses Windows Phone, the choice is rather limited. Daily deal website iBood is selling the HTC Titan, which runs on Windows Phone 7.5 for £250, a deal that lasts until tonight.

The phone, which has been superseded by the Titan II, comes with a massive 4.7in S-LCD 800 x 480 pixels display, a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor clocked at 1.5GHz with an Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, an eight megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, 28mm wide-angle lens, F2.2 aperture and BSI sensor, a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera, HD video recording, DLNA, a hardware camera button, microUSB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio and a 1600mAh battery.

The Titan comes with a two year warranty and features the HTC Hub as well as exclusive HTC Apps. It's worth noting that the phone is just under 10mm thick, weighs 160g and like all other Windows Phone handsets doesn't come with a microSD card slot.

There are cheaper alternatives like the Nokia Lumia 710 which costs around half the price. However, it has less onboard storage, has a slower processor, a smaller screen and a lesser-spec'ced rear camera.
