HTC Titan 4G exclusive to Telstra from 29 May
Mobile phone fans in Australia are about to be treated to the first 4G Windows Phone device in the shape of the HTC Titan 4G and it will be exclusive to Telstra from the 29th of May, and will be the third 4G handset that the carrier will have in its line up to offer to its customers.
According to an article over at ARN the handset joins the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G and the HTC Velocity 4G, and the device is the follow on from the original Titan that was never seen in the country. Besides the fact the handset can work on Telstra’s 4G network, it features an impressive sixteen megapixel camera that captures images with a resolution of 4640 x 3480 pixels.
Will Irving of Telstra said that the handset will allow small businesses to “perform even more advanced tasks from the palms of their hands”. The Titan 4G becomes the fourth handset on the platform to be made available in Australia since its launch back in 2010, and previously provided the 7 Trophy on Vodafone, and the HD 7 and 7 Mozart both on Telstra.
Running the latest version of the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system, the HTC Titan 4G features a 4.7-inch SLCD screen with a resolution of 480 x 800, which is powered by a 1.5GHz single core processor. The handset is quite a size measuring 132mm long and 13mm thick and also features 16GB of on board storage with no means of expanding this further. Because of the aluminium design the handsets battery is not removable, and the HTC Titan 4G will be available via Telstra stores and online.
It will be available free on the $79 Freedom Connect Plan that includes $800 worth of voice calls and text messages, and unlimited SMS messages and 2GB of data each month. There will also be a number of Telstra business plans available.
