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?

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
"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
