HTC Titan II coming to AT&T's LTE network in the "coming months"

As we 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".

He has an Android phone, duh.

Let's put it this way: As "messy" as Android is or was, it is way, way better than WM ever was. And thanks to Apple and Android, MS decided to make something decent.

But they had over ten years to get it right. And when the iphone came out, WM was still stuck on IE 4, that's right, the same browser Win98 came with (hell Win95 OSR2 had it in 1997).

Sorry, I'm not wanting MS to ever regain momentum in the market again.

The fact that you mentioned windows mobile makes you look like an tool. Windows Phone 7/7.5 has nothing to do with WM. WM existed for as long as it did for legacy support. It shouldn't be compared to modern mobile operating systems.

Oh, except that both are based on Windows CE huh?

So what if WP7 is a break from WM? That does not disprove the fact that MS was content with the garbage that WM was for the next century, IE4 and all, if it werent' for competition.
Legacy support my ass.

I could go on and on about the backwards decisions made with WM5 and their syncing, or how their mobile exchange client wouldn't sync after a week, or losing the ability to ring when calls came in.

You certainly COULD go on about and I welcome you to do so. I'll enjoy my great experience with WP7 in the present while you rage about how it was "back in the day". Sound fair? =P

Good for you if you like your phone. Congratulations for MS for making a halfway decent product after 17 years of trying.
The rest of the world got tired of waiting and left the MS ecosystem a long time ago.

Woah woah hold your horses man, Apple designed something beatuful also precisely because it was nearly killed by MS a decade or two ago, why would Apple bring SJ back and build the new dark empire from scratch if they were sitting on a monopoly market like MS did in the recent years? There's no reason to do anything once you got a monopoly status, look at Apple sitting duck before MS killed it, look at RIM sitting duck before Apple killed it, look at MS sitting duck before Apple killed it too (not all across the board of course but you got my point). It's always the same story for any company, MS is not inherently evil and neither is Apple or Google. They become slow and sleepy after they get monopoly status, watch Apple or Google turning into some other kind of monopoly in the future and THEN you'll hail Ballmer as your savior. Mark my words man.

You just described what I like to call the Shareholder Effect

Damned if you do, damned if you don't, eh... funny how MS can be so evil all the time even though nearly EVERYONE in the passed decade or two has seen their quality of life grow in ways previously unimaginable. I can't even imagine the world without Microsoft having played the role it did. Maybe you were just entitled to it all though?
