    Whoa, is that a tablet in your pocket or are you just happy to see me. This will be my next phone. I'm 90% sure of it. I'll have to save 10% to see if Samsung can top it.

    Oh and finally a farking dock!

    I'll have to hold the Titan to decide for sure, but 4.7" doesn't sound too big IMO. The US variants of the Galaxy S2 are 4.52". I kinda like the idea of a giant screen. It's also very slim.

    Yeah i love the idea of a bigger screen too but will have to hold it in my hand to see first.

    Think it would be OK and not too large, but you dunno till you try it I guess.

    Only thing is the SLCD V Super Amoled, I absolutely love my Omnia's screen. Hmmmmm.

    I'm liking the docks, I hope generation 2 phone similar to the Quantum comes out with one.

    The thing with that big screen though is it's the same resolution - still 480x800. You're gaining nothing over handsets with smaller screens other than dimensions. And at that big, I can't believe it's not going to start looking pixellated.

    Exactly. Besides having a mini-tablet as a phone, the resolution HTC is offering at that screen size is not a good look. Apparently HTC is following the model they've used for their Android offerings: Make the phone as big as possible, create a weird hump somewhere on the phone and put no research and development into resolutions that would be appropriate for a giant phone. But who can knock them. Apparently it's working for them in Android land.

    The guys at engadget said that they didn't see anything that looked pixellated and that the screen looked bright and had good viewing angles.

    I've seen elsewhere (can't recall if it was gizmodo or thisismynext) that it looked a bit ragged in places because it was stretched out.

    Regardless, I'd rather have small and pin sharp than large and blocky. It's no retina display, that's for sure.

    WP7 doesnt support any resolution higher than 800x480 so there's nothing any OEM can do about that, no matter how big or small the screen size.

    You must not have ever used a tablet. What the heeezy does "mini-tablet" mean?

    If you don't like it, you know you don't have to buy it.

    Samsung introduced a new Android phone today called the Samsung Note, with a 5.3" SAMOLED screen. It'll be interesting to see if they use that as a template for a new WP7 phone. It even has a built in stylus for handwritten notes and the like. I'm not a big Android fan (ha, ha!) but I can see the appeal of it.

    I seen that earlier. I don't think it's a tablet, just a big *** phone with a stylus. I've tried to user one of the smaller 7" tablets and it was just too small. I think 10" is the perfect size.

    I agree, i have a 10 inch Tablet (Advent Vega) and it's just right, my friend has a 7 inch tablet and it's far too small IMO.

    I ride a motorcycle most days. I don't want to have to use a backpack to carry my phone around. I like a phone that fits comfortably in my pocket.

    Titan still has higher pixel density than iPhone 3gs. It's not as bad as people are making it out to be. Those are still much smaller pixels than you'd see on a typical laptop screen.

    Engadget even said they didn't see any noticeable pixelization on the huge display.

    I remember reading a phone comparison of Super LCD and Super Amoled screens outside, and in bright light the Super LCD was hardly visible.

    How do they compare ? I've never seen a Super LCD screen.

    I know i can see my Omnia fine in bright light.

    That's the only thing that has spolied me with my Omnia I think. :)

    My feelings exactly. I wish the new Titan had a higher resolution but I was happily surprised by the Trophy so who knows. I'll have to see it for myself.

    So if I were to sum up my first impressions of both devices:

    Radar: Nice screen, cool front facing camera, Trophy/Mozart replacement

    Titan: Awesome screen, great design and unibody, (again front facing camera) blows the HD7 clear out of the water

    Still want to see what Samsung are going to bring to the Mango party, but HTC have set the bar fairly high...

    My only complaint is wpcentral's guesstimate that the global launch for the Titan will be in October with US possibly being around December. I WANT IT TO BE RELEASED WITHIN A MONTH!
