    I would definitely jump on this phone, but is there any hope at all of it coming to sprint?

    I have 2 weeks to decide if I should keep my arrive or go back to my pre and waif for a new wp7 device...
    I suppose it's a possibility. But if it does, it will have to use a different version of the Snapdragon chip. It's using the 8255, where IIRC only the 86xx chips support all the CDMA radios that Verizon/Sprint use.

    It's always hard to tell with Sprint. They like to do all their product announcements at their own events rather than at trade shows like CES. So a lot of times, companies like HTC will announce their products for all the other carriers, only to reveal their Sprint offerings at a later date.

    Honestly I'd be surprised if HTC weren't working on some new WP7.5 for Sprint. Sprint could very well be getting their own version of the Titan, but you can bet it won't be called the Titan and it will have 4G in the name somewhere :) But yeah, with Sprint you never know very far in advance, unfortunately.

    Yes it is a big phone, but the Titan screen size has won me, so I can't wait to get my hands on it. A device with a screen size between 5 inches and 7 inches should be classed as a mini tablet even with phone software like the Samsung Note.

    Would have liked to see Full HD video recording and 1 GB of Ram. Plus Beats Audio like the HTC Runnymede which also sports a 4.7 inch screen, but those things are not deal breakers for me.

    NOT with you. Not yet anyways. I gotta see what else comes out first. Samsung, Nokia, and HTC have more WP coming. I also have Sprint and praying they get more on-board with WP. They need more than one offering. I do like the Titan though.

    there are only 2 CDMA WP's right now the trophy on VZ and Arrive on Sprint ?
    they should get the first next gen devices but I'm not holding my breath.

    I would love to see Sprint or Verizon step up and start talking more about WP's

    I would say thats not very likely to happen iots more likely to be as far as US is concerned Tmo and ATT first like 1st generation as they are already coming out with GSM in Europe and all tahts needed ifor US and NA oGsm is differeant frequency radios.

    Sprint is really starting to annoy me. They passed on the Pre2, had no intensions on the Pre3, and is seemingly worthless with WP7. It's extremely frustrating to me.

    It's hard being a Sprint customer! I got frustrated when Sprint was a complete no-show at CES and MWC while everybody else announced all their dual-core superphones. Then they had that stupid David Blaine press event to unveil the lousy Kyocera Echo. It didn't help that they took away 1-year upgrades. That was when I started seriously looking at leaving Sprint and considering my options, and eventually decided to go with T-Mobile and WP7!

    But then, Sprint had their own event to announce the Evo 3D. And they finally released the Arrive. It sucks that there are no more 1-year upgrades, but 2 years is the industry standard now. And, they are now the only carrier with truly unlimited data. So really it wasn't as bad as I made it out to be in my head.

    Moral of the story: Sprint probably has something good coming up, but you'll never know when they'll get around to announcing it. It sucks trying to be patient in a market that moves so quickly, but your patience will probably be rewarded.

    Leave Sprint. I definately plan to. I know for a fact that they will not carry any Windows Phone Mango devices, at least this year. Look, they only care about Android. I will not stand for it any more. AT&T here I come. I don't even care about data caps and higher price. I want a phone that works. And Sprint doesn't have any.

    How do you know that where are you getting that information? If you don't mind me asking.

    I'll need to see the screen before I consider this device. If it still has that weird "tearing" that the hd7/hd7s has, then it's a no go for me...

    Yeah right. Could Sprint get the Titan? If so, what do you think it would cost to upgrade my Arrive (which arrived in March).

    I too would leave Sprint if they ignore the WP7 platform.

    Most of these phones start out as GSM, so I expect most Windows Phones to go to AT&T first, then T-Mobile. Verizon relies on their Droid line so they'll only offer a few Windows Phones throughout the year for variety, much like they did with the now defunct webOS phones. Sprint is also using Android to create their own branded experiences which they can't get with Windows Phone. All the Windows Phone ads in the world now won't make a much difference this year. I don't really expect to see much traction until maybe summer 2012, with Nokia, Tango, and cheap phones. Nokia's got the power to make phones cheap, and they're willing to play ball with CDMA carriers like Verizon. They also need Windows Phone to succeed, and Microsoft needs someone who needs them, which currently exclude the carriers, at least at this point.

    Where do you get your info on no mango devices?

    Sprint beats everybody plan prices, data caps, and features. I have priced verizon and at&t over and over and they can't touch sprint. Enjoy at&t with crap data, caps and higher prices.

    On the titan, I like it and hope it comes to sprint but I am open to a newer and bigger wp7 phone on sprint from whoever. I like the arrive and I am satisfied so far, just watching and waiting on how wp7 phones develop.

    A newer version of the Omnia 7 with front facing camera and the 2nd-gen Snapdragon chip just went through FCC approval, and it has CDMA bands. Meaning it will be going either Sprint or Verizon (or maybe US Cellular/Metro PCS?)

    So don't panic yet, the CDMA carriers will get their Mango phones.

    going to both carriers would be nic e! An ATT version would be nice as well!

    I love big screens because my eyesight is not what it was, I also have big hands so holding this beast will not be a problem - 95% this will be my next phone although I will hang on to see if Nokia come out with something good.

    That's why i like the sound of the Titan too adesonic, my eyesight isn't too hot now and a bigger screen would be very beneficial for me.

    Like you, I don't want to rush into things and will wait to see what other hadsets appear. :)

    Still hoping that a larger Super Amoled screen than my Omnia arrives from somewhere. :)

    Does anyone know if this SLCD is the same screen as the HTC Inspire 4G? I had that phone for a while. Loved the screen and hardware, but not the OS. If the Titan will be like the Inspire but with WP Mango, this could be an awesome phone.

    I am a 10 year customer, so we get 1 phone upgrade after a year. I priced the ATT family plans versus Sprint and it came to about a $30 a month different (even with the smartphone tax). Plus no unlimitted data. so I'd prefer to stay with Sprint...but really, what's the point if all they have is the one mobile OS I hate (well, other than blackberry, but does that even count anymore).

    I am trading in my arrive tonight for an evo 3d. Its more or less a place holder while waiting for SOME kind of announcement from Sprint.

    Here's to hoping sprint pull's their heads from their bums.

    Agreed. I do NOT have high hopes. I am guessing I'll be dying to get back to WP7

    Good luck! It was tough for me to go from webOS to Android. But hey, it's a good thing to try a wide variety of gadgets just to see what you're missing.
