HTC Titan specification

HTC TITAN - front right - Carbon Grey Following on from my earlier post from HTC’s press event I’m please to be able to bring you details of the new HTC Titan.

The HTC Titan certainly lives up to the Titan name with a 4.7″ display this has to be the largest phone I have ever seen. It’s perhaps a little surprising though that there isn’t a qHD resolution screen here but a 480×800 pixel panel is used instead. Either way this is going to be a nice phone for web browsing and video playback.

Other highlights include the 1.5GHz CPU and 16GB of on-board storage.

You can see the full specification below along with several more photos of the phone in all its glory. We’ll have our hands on videos etc. for you as soon as we can.

HTC Radar specification

HTC Radar - front angle - Metal Grey The HTC Radar is the second of two phones announced by HTC today.

The HTC Radar is another Windows Phone device and is the little brother of the giant HTC Titan. The 3.8″ screen may be a more ‘sensible’ size for the masses.

Once again, we’ll have our hands-on videos and review just as soon as we can.

In the mean time the full specification and some pretty photos follow.

HTC Announce two new Windows Phone devices

htc-logo-300x188 I’m currently sitting at an HTC press event in London where HTC are just about to announce two new Windows Phone devices, the HTC Titan and the HTC Radar.

It has been a while since we saw any new Windows Phone handsets so it’s great to see a couple of new devices launched today.

At the moment I’m not sure of the launch timing or what networks the phones will be on, if any, but should discover much of this during the event. I’m also hoping for some hands-on time with both phones.

I’ll be reporting more as we get and full details of both phones will follow this post shortly.

Toshiba Tablet to Excite

excite1-trademarkRecently, we reported that the Thrive was coming to Europe however there was a new and improved version of the Toshiba Android tablet on the horizon. According to sources at AndroidPolice, there will be a new follow-up Android tablet with a new name. That name will most likely be, The Excite. A tipster garnered the intel about the device, but there is also two other bits of corroborating evidence. One is the Trademark filing above, and the other is that Toshiba has bought up the following slew of domain names: ‘excitetablet.com,’ ‘excitetablet.net,’ toshibaexcite.com,’ ‘toshibaexcite.net’ and ‘thetoshibaexcite.com and others. Incidentally, these three puzzle pieces were the exact same method that lead to the accurate deduction of the name for the Thrive as well.

The word is that this new tab will be an ultra-thin variant of the Thrive, but will still pack in all of the same features of the original, plus some other enhancements to go along with the svelt design. Here’s a breakdown:

  • 10.1 Inch
  • Ultra thin body – Possibly the biggest difference to the chunky Thrive right there.
  • MicroUSB
  • Micro HDMI
  • MicroSD ports
  • Brushed metal finish
  • Dual-core, 1.5-GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 4460
  • 8 GB to 32 GB storage sizes
  • Multiple Colors again and more.
