    NO ONE is blogging, tweeting or anything about it. Not even wpcentral. Does anyone else not see a problem with this complete lack of marketing for WP7? This is the OS supposed to rise to number two by 2015? Maybe they actually meant it would take 2015 YEARS to get to number two.....

    ya man i totally agree, it completely blows how much major tech sites ignore WP7.....most of them are biased android and ios nut riders and not really journalists. It sucks because WP7 imho is actually a superior product and deserves much more attention as well as marketing blitz from MS and its vendors

    But nothing from the official wpcentral feed, i dont follow those 2 so how would I know? The mainstream press ignores WP7, wasnt expecting the silence from here too. Especially after plastering the news of the event on their site weeks ago.

    http://wmpoweruser.com/ has a couple updates from the event. Titan indeed has 1.5 GHz CPU, 8mp camera, 4.7" screen and aluminum unibody.

    Radar only has 1ghz CPU and 5mp camera unfortunately :(

    The Radar is a disappointment. :(

    The budget WP market can be served with the devices that exist in the market already.

    Titan looks awesome. Looks like it has much better camera and better build quality than the HD7 (my 2 biggest complaints). 4.7" SLCD isn't hurting either :)

    Up on Engadget now too. Titan looks good (if huuuge), though bummer the screen resolution isn't boosted up. Radar looks worse on paper than the Mozart is now - I'd trade a VGA front-facing camera for a removable (and upgradeable) battery any day.

    I'm just not excited about either of these devices, tbh. Here's hoping Samsung's Galaxy S2 variant really kicks things off.

    I think i'd miss my Super Amoled screen. So still awaiting Samsung's new arrivals. :)

    Looks like Telstra in Australia will carry the Titan which I certainly will be buying!!

    I'm with you. I might have to hold the Titan in my hand before judging, but I really don't want a mini-tablet for a phone. That's one reason I dumped my Evo. I want my phone to fit comfortably in my pocket.

    The Radar looks terrible IMO. Just ugly and underpowered.

    This announcement does make me think, however, about how Sprint is going to continue dying a slow death even with the iPhone. Actually, especially because of the iPhone, because Sprint thinks they're giving customers what they want. I suspect Android and iPhone are going to dominate their selection. I already have one foot out the door with all the new phones being announced for AT&T and T-Mobile. There's little doubt the Nokia phones will head to AT&T first. What I want, and I believe other customers want, is CHOICE. AT&T gives that to customers in abundance. My contract with Sprint is up 8/2012, and I bet many new WP phones are announced for other carriers and maybe one will come to Sprint. That won't be enough to keep me from paying the ETF and jumping on a sexy WP Mango device somewhere else.

    I want to like both phones but I just can't. The Titan is just too big. I like a big screen and the 4 inch Focus is perfect. But 4.7 is too much. Aside from the screen I can't think of any thing that really stands out about the phone. 8MP camera is nice for large photos but I need to hear more about photo quality first. 16GB storage is great but nothing ground breaking. And then we have the Radar. Now I could live with a 3.7 inch screen but IMO that's one ugly phone. And man, baby got back! The bottom just doesn't look good. It's too dumpy looking and appears like it could snap off easily.

    I'm less excited about phone specs and more excited about the software.

    Nothing about these devices makes me want to change from my DVP. Good for new users to look forward to but with a 32GB device I wont be downgrading for these devices.

    I liked the Titan, I might consider buying one. Still, waiting for what samsung and nokia has to offer first.

    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.
