HTC Titan II coming to AT&T's LTE network in the "coming months"
reported over the weekend
, Microsoft and its partners are finally realizing that Windows Phone won't simply sell itself -- it has to put some money and marketing muscle behind the platform.
There also needs to be an emphasis on better hardware for the Windows Phone platform. Nokia will do its part with the Lumia 900 at a press conference later today, while HTC is already onboard with the HTC Titan II. The Titan II is the first LTE smartphone to grace
AT&T's nascent network
The smartphone comes packing a large 4.7" display, a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 processor, a whopping 16MP rear camera with 720p video recording capability (a 1.3 front facing camera is also included), and a large 1730 mAh battery.
“HTC’s history of innovation in 4G technology includes delivering the first 4G-powered devices to each major carrier in the U.S., so it is exciting today to continue that leadership with our first 4G LTE Windows Phone, the HTC TITAN II,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corp. “This full-featured smartphone combines HTC’s design with AT&T’s high-speed 4G LTE network and Microsoft’s powerful Windows Phone software, giving people more of what they crave.”
We don't yet having any pricing or concrete availability details for the HTC Titan II. All HTC will say at the moment is that it will be available in the "coming months".

RE: Are the new windows phones worth it?

My Wife has a Android based Samsung phone and if you mention the hanging, freezing, crashing, or usb issues your obviously a liar because someone somewhere has never had this problem on an Android based device and will tell your differently.
I own 6 Android based devices they all will experience issues with performance and stability. Not immediately but about once a month there are problems which can only be solved by reboot of the device. So people hated it when Windows needed to be rebooted but are ok with their communication device fails them and needs reboots? Im amazed at what people tolerate today. I'm looking at you too iPhone 4 users who were ok with dropped calls because of a design issue. You sure put up with a lot.
In a freak turn of events my Windows Phone 7 has never crashed or even needed a reboot except when it was upgraded to 7.5. Its smooth its snappy and I love it. Something we joked about at work the other day because we manage about 150 servers which need reboots. How the heck did Microsoft make a Phone that doesn't need a reboot?
Try the Windows Phone notice that everyone with one really likes them.
