HTC Titan Hailed as the First Chinese Windows Phone 7 Smartphone

Move over Nokia and ZTE, now’s the time for HTC to rule over the Chinese territory. Sounds like a weird thing to say but the Taiwanese handset maker did manage to release the first Windows Phone 7 device in China and it’s none other than the HTC Titan. Anyways, you’ll have to get used to saying the phone’s official Chinese moniker since it will be called as the HTC Triumph.

Priced at ¥4,399 (that’s around 700 US Dollars), the HTC Titan aka Triumph flaunts is 4.7 inch S-LCD capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 800 pixels of full screen resolution. The phone runs on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. In terms of performance, the handset relies on Qualcomm’s powerful Scorpion MSM8255 processor that has been clocked at 1.5GHz. Thus, you can be assured that you will be able to multi-task by simultaneously using a couple of widgets and applications. In addition, the smartphone has already been pre-loaded with local apps for social networking that your friendly Chinese folks can definitely enjoy. Instead of Facebook and Twitter, they can post their status and daily updates via Tencent Weixin and Sina Weibo. Meanwhile, those who are hoping to make use of cloud storage can take advantage of Microsoft’s SkyDrive.

Apart from the above specs, the Chinese variant of the HTC Titan flaunts its Dolby Mobile and SRS sound enhancement, 3.5mm headphone jack, 512MB of RAM, up to 16GB of internal storage, 3G HSDPA connectivity, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, micro USB 2.0, 8 mega pixel rear facing camera with auto focus, geo-tagging and LED flash, 720p video recording, 1.3 mega pixel front facing camera for video conferences, Stereo FM Radio with RDS, HTML Browser, YouTube, Voice Memo and active noise cancellation. The phone packs a standard 1600 mAh Li-ion battery.

There’s no doubt that HTC aims to catch the interest of those who are eyeing for a reliable high-end WP handset.
