    I'll let you know what it's like Big D5, only if you're good though. :)

    (Still waiting patiently to see what my beloved Sammy brings to the table)

    Hoping it's a larger Omnia 7 with FF camera. I just love it's design. I don't care a bit about storage space 8GB is more than enough for me.

    But hey this isn't the Omnia forum so i shall now shut my cakehole. (Right who said thank goodness at the back? Grrr) :)

    HTC TITAN Product Overview - HTC Smartphones

    Just thought i'd post the HTC Titan website URL in here seeing it now has it's own forum.

    (Just incase Big D5 wants to check it out again) ;)

    It looks nice, but it's not for me. I have a feeling unless Nokia wows me I may pass on generation 2 phones.

    Yes you forget this is only one OEM, there are all the others still to arrive. Exciting times indeed. :)

    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    I just have a sneaky feeling a newer version of the Quantum isn't gonna happen, which is fine I really don't need a better camera etc. The only thing that would make me jump is some crazy internal memory boost.

    If it makes it to T-Mobile, or if there is an unlocked version that works on T-Mobile, I just might get the Titan. I'm really impressed with what I've seen so far. It looks to have a much better camera, WAY better build quality, and a better display than the HD7. They managed to address every shortcoming that their last-Gen phones have. All that remains to be seen is battery life.

    I like it but I'm tied to Verizon and they haven't seemed too keen on WP7. Hopefully, the Mango update will get them more interested.

    No chance at all. Doesn't look like anything is coming to Sprint or VZW any time soon.

    I like everything about the Titan except the size. Nothing less than half a foot diagonally for me!! Seriously though, it's just too big for me. 4", possible 4.3" is about as large as I'm thinking I need. I'm not about to carry around a satchel just to tote my mobile around.

    That's what I said until I tried an EVO. Now I can't get a big
    enough screen although this may be pushing it as far as it goes before it gets ridiculous (ala, Dell Streak).

    Count me in.

    SWEET! Does T-Mobile in the EU use the same bands as T-Mobile USA? It would be so sweet to get one of these unlocked. Especially since it should work on AT&T's bands as well.

    EDIT: well as far as I can tell, you would only be able to use it on 2G for T-Mobile USA. Still not really sure though.

    I've had an Infuse before and that 4.5" phone has almost the same dimensions as this and it was quite manageable. The biggest problem was that the cheap plastic did not inspire confidence when held, and the biggest were the constant worries of bending or squishing the phone even in a large cargo pants pocket. I can go thin and big, just not thin and big AND cheap build. The Titan seems to solve the build quality part at least with its rigid metal chassis.

    The HTC Titan is currently on my shortlist with the Nokia Sea Ray. I want to try WP7, and DON'T want anything made by Samsung (had them for like 5 phones already...).

    The Titan though is far from ideal. For one, the design is one of their blandest to date IMHO. It looks like a prototype to test out software and the hardware (aesthetically at least) was just slapped together in five minutes as a placeholder. I was hoping for a smaller phone with a Mozart design, with the rough edges that phone may have had ironed out and maybe a 4", but instead we got the Radar/Trophy 1.01...which I find really ugly and has a bad screen. Hoping for more WP7 devices to come from HTC besides these though. The other problem the Titan might have is the camera. HTC is pretty much at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to video capture. The MyTouch 4G slide had a similar specced lens as the ones being touted right now and the video quality (and audio capture) was pretty bad. Hopefully this is a different setup and they have made leaps and bounds on this front in the last couple months. Hopefully the speakers are up to snuff as well on a <10mm phone...

    gonna wait to see what samsung and nokia have to offer. but i like what im seeing here. my only real concern is the battery life. the big screen takes a lot of juice to run.

    The rep on the video on engadget made a point to talk about the camera having a bigger sensor than previous devices, so it seems like they've tried to improve that metric.

    This phone is only a cm taller than my inspire 4g and 2 mm wider, so I'm not scared of the size initially.

    There will be a lot of phones coming out in the next few months. I would liek to see what Nokia will be throwing into the ring. I dont want to start salivating on this phone and find out that a "stripped down version" of it will be coming to a US carrier other than Sprint.

    I just got my Sprint HTC Arrive last week. I would exchange for another Windows Phone that has a front facing camera and pre-installed with Mango. Although Mango is scheduled for a fall "update", it doesnt mean WE will get it. It just means the carriers will get their chance to hack it up...disable some features..install their own generic features. By the time Mango is officially released to the public, there will be new phones available just in time for the Christmas rush.
