    Nope.
    Are any of these phones coming to sprint?? What about t-mobile? (besides the radar) Im out of contract (with my palm pre) and can switch but i'd only go to t-mobile since they are cheaper (att and verizon are too expensive). So any good phones coming to sprint or tmo?

    The nope was for Sprint. Not sure if tmobile is getting anything new, other than the radar.

    I don't understand. Is the Titan just a HD7 with a bigger screen and a larger body? Is the Focus S just a Arrive with a different body and a larger screen? Pretty much yeah, but there are differences in the inside. Some have FFC, some don't. The Focus S has NFC, the Titan don't. The Titan has DNLA but the Foucs S doesn't. But they all are WP7, so they are all pretty similar.
    Where did you hear the Focus S has NFC? That alone might make it the phone for me if true, but I never saw anything about it either way.

    That is good, but surprising since the OS doesn't yet support it.

    Andy Lees talks Windows Phone 7 hardware for 2012 and NFC - Pocket-lint

    But I am excited that Samsung is forward looking and put it in anyways. Since we are locked into a device for 2 years, and NFC is coming next year, I can be future proofed with this device. I am mostly excited about using it for mass transit applications in Europe, especially the Saint Petersbrg metro system.

    The Focus Flash is called the Omnia W he in Europe.

    Does anyone know which models will be available here and what they might be called?

    I'm still waiting to see the price of the Nokias anyway...

    Yeah it's nice. Technology moves so fast that it's great that Samsung looked ahead. I was amazed at the number of businesses that are set up to use NFC, just in my immediate area.

    I was pretty sure I was going to go for the Focus S. But after the Titan reviews and these pics I'm not so sure anymore. I could see myself going with the Titan instead. I'll have to try them out at the store.
    that is exactly where i am with things too. a windows phone version of the GS2 sounded awesome, but i'm almost underwhelmed with the photos. especially after watching/reading every tech site's review of the Titan, i'm really up in the air between them. it'll just come down to having each in hand and seeing which one i like better. hopefully i'll be able to do this at my local AT&T store sooner rather than later.

    Comes down to storage and battery life for me.

    I'm completely in love with the Focus S, but I really want to try its camera before I decide between it and the Titan. The Titan seems to be a beast at taking pictures, but my current Focus is honestly sub-par in low light. If the S fixes that, then it will be the choice for me. If not, I may be headed toward the Titan.

    Thought I would put this up here in case people hadn't already done it. This is from Microsoft's site, you can see the side-by-side comparison of the three models. For some reason, the Titan still looks like the top dog in this comparison. With a better camera, bigger screen, and better battery life. Although the Focus S does offer better screen technology.


    EDIT: It seems Microsoft forgot to put that the Titan also has a 1.3 MP front-facing camera.

    Am I missing something or is the Focus S basically the same phone as the Titan, just with a different body and screen?
    "Am I missing something or are pineapples basically the same as strawberries, just different bodies and leaves."

    Come on man, Body and screen are the only two parts of the phone. If both are different then it won't look the same at all lol.

    According to Microsoft, they both have 1.5 ghz processors like the HTC Titan. I took it straight from their Windows Phone website. Again, the only difference I saw was in the form factor of the three phones, the battery life, the screen technology, the screen size, and the cameras.

    I'm definitely gonna check out both Titan and Focus S before I make my decision.

    If the camera is as good and/or better on the Titan, I may get that over the Focus S.

    The battery life is crazy to me... the Titan has 10 days less standby than the Sammys, but 2-4 hours of physical use. I wonder how accurate it will be in real life tests.
