HTC couldn’t let Nokia win it all with its free turn-by-turn offline navigation solution bundled with Lumia Windows Phones. Some HTC Locations users on Android had the opportunity to download maps but now there’s a new version available for Windows Phone users rocking Taiwanese phones.
Now the new version of HTC Locations allows you to download maps and use them for offline navigation. The new description reflects just that: “find your way with directions or voice guidance. You can download maps to your phone for offline use, or search and browse online maps [...]
According to an AT&T Community Manager’s posting, the carrier is not planning to offer the Windows Phone 8107 update. The refresh solves the famous “keyboard bug”. Of course, as with any Windows Phone update, carriers can skip one but need to offer the subsequent one, which is cumulative anyways.
However, we need to remember Eric Hautala’s famous post: “In the months ahead, we’ll continue to send out firmware and maintenance updates as needed. These will be available across the globealthough not everybody will receive or require them. It [...]
Windows Phone has been a long time coming to China, with rumors about its launch there stemming back to 2010. Recently, we’ve been seeing the situation start to make some movement, starting with rumors last fall that things were starting to come together for the introduction of the OS there. Even more recently, we saw some Chinese retailers start taking pre-orders for Windows Phone handsets, and then heard that we would likely be looking at the first one arriving sometime in March. It’s looking like that moment is nearly upon us, with the first Windows Phone for China [...]
We’ve previously seen the hands-on video with the newly announced Nokia Lumia 900 — the international version of the AT&T Lumia 900 — and this time we’re checking the phone out side-by-side with other Windows Phones.
Probably comparable in size with the Lumia 900 is the HTC Titan (even if it is the first Titan and not the second one, on AT&T’s 4G LTE). As you can see in the video below, they’re pretty similar in dimensions but then again the Nokia design shines compared to the rather dull HTC (though some of you might disagree; it [...]
We’ve been keeping our eye on the progress Windows Phone has been making towards a launch in China. With language support in place, we’ve been waiting for news of the operating system’s official Chinese debut. Nokia has helped provide our most recent estimate of when just such an event may occur, announcing its intent to bring its Windows Phone hardware to the Chinese market sometime in the first half of the year. We still don’t have a better guess at the date, but advertisements show Chinese retailers already accepting pre-orders for Windows Phone handsets, [...]
HTC’s Titan, with its extra-large screen, came out near the top of this past fall’s lineup of Mango-running Windows Phone models. Despite our esteem for the handset, not everyone who’s picked it up has had the same, glowing experience. Noticing a pattern of user-submitted complaints of poor voice call quality with the Titan, WPSauce did a little experimentation of its own, and reached-out to HTC for comment. The company’s response indicates that this problem is nothing new to it, and it’s looking into what to do about it.
Users suffering from this [...]
Microsoft was kind enough to give out details of the 7740 update for Windows Phone back in November: it fixes “an issue with new voice mail notifications not appearing for customers on some European and Asian networks under certain conditions. It also fixes an email issue associated with Exchange Server 2003”.
A couple of devices, including the LG Optimus 7, already received the new platform refresh but according to recent reports, the international version of the HTC Titan is also getting it. Users in Denmark and in the U.K. have confirmed the existence of the [...]
The HTC Titan is an excellent Windows Phone — and it’s got a 4/5 in our review to prove that — but every now and then it seems to display graphics lag when running intensive applications such as games.
WPCentral posted a quick temporary fix; if you are experiencing issues while playing games like Fruit Ninja, you have to back out of the game and go into the Settings page. There, navigate to Sound Enhancer and turn it off. Chances are you won’t be needing it that much while playing and it appears to fix the problem, at least until HTC comes up with an [...]
The HTC Titan Windows Phone went on sale officially over at AT&T on November 20 for $199.99 on a two-year contract. A week later it seems that the phone is now listed as being out of stock.
The carrier offered the HTC Titan for one cent on Saturday and it looks like the promotion reached out to more customers than there were devices on stock. If you go to the HTC Titan page on AT&T you’ll see that the phone is currently out of stock. This could be a pretty good indication on how popular the Windows Phone with the huge screen is; we just hope AT&T restocks [...]
Everyone is preparing for Black Friday and the deals are starting to pour in. This time it’s Microsoft with some great offers for those who want to pick up a Windows Phone. If you have a Microsoft Store nearby, get there tomorrow.
You’ll be able to grab a new Windows Phone for free from any Microsoft brick and mortar store tomorrow with the occasion of the Black Friday deal. Of course you still have to sign a two-year carrier contract but if a new Windows Phone was already on your shopping list — how about a Titan or Focus S? — you know where to find them [...]
AT&T finally gave out information about the availability of the HTC Titan on November 9 when the carrier said the Taiwanese Windows Phone will arrive for retail sales on November 20. Today, as promised, it is available to order.
With its 1.5GHz processor and 4.7-inch WVGA screen, the HTC Titan will cost you $199.99 given you sign a two-year contract. $549.99 is the price of the phone without an agreement and you’ll get a device running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango that scored pretty well in our review, collecting four points out of five.

It’s always good to have software updates for current hardware because you know that on one hand, your OEM and/or carrier are still supporting your device and on the other hand, new functionality is added and/or bugs are ironed out.
The HTC HD7, HTC Mozart and the Samsung Focus all recently got software updates. While the update for the first two phones is available in certain European regions, the Samsung Focus is of course an American phone and U.S. users should receive the notification. What’s in the package? According to reports, it’s Internet Sharing for [...]
Microsoft’s Windows Phone event in New York City this past Monday was quite the spectacle. From the performances, to the smartphones on-hand, there was more than enough to keep us busy. While the event was more about general promotion of the operating system, it did create the opportunity for us to learn a little more about one handset’s release plans, putting a price tag on the HTC Titan. What we still didn’t have was a release date. Today that last mystery has been resolved, with AT&T revealing the Titan will arrive for retail sales on November [...]
While there haven’t been many secrets left concerning the US launches of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango devices, we’ve still been looking forward to see what Microsoft had to reveal at the event it had scheduled for earlier today. We did end up learning a little new information, but more than anything, today’s event was about building-up Windows Phone buzz, with more than a little help from a six-story-tall WP7 smartphone.
The only new tidbit we picked up had to do with the HTC Titan on AT&T, the last of the four handsets (also including the HTC Radar 4G, Samsung [...]
HTC is clearly excited about its new Windows Phone Mango handsets, the HTC Titan and Radar 4G. If you’ve read our Titan review, you’d know that we’re sharing in the company’s enthusiasm. Hoping to spread some of that interest out elsewhere, HTC has produced a whole bunch of videos featuring comedian Jim Gaffigan, showing off some of the capabilities of this hardware and Windows Phone software while having a few laughs.
There are sixteen of these videos altogether, a mix of minute-long clips that focus on one particular feature and longer-format videos. [...]
Windows Phone 7 has proven that it has staying power, now a year after the first wave of devices. With the release of Mango, also known as Windows Phone 7.5, we’re seeing a new wave of hardware to usher in larger screens, faster processors, and better cameras. One such new device is the HTC Titan, a phone that packs a huge 4.7″ display with an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, bringing the clock speed to 1.5GHz–the fastest currently available with Windows Phone 7. Is the Titan the best Windows Phone 7 yet? Read our full review to find out!
After taking a closer look at the hardware of the mighty HTC Titan, we spend some time, in this video, covering the software of the device. It’s the fastest device, in terms of CPU speed, currently on the market, if you want a Windows Phone 7 device. Sitting on top of the latest Mango build of WP7, the Titan is indeed snappy, especially when browsing the web. Windows Phone 7 is normally speedy, so adding another 500MHz worth of processing power enhances daily use in certain areas (like gaming, web, and video), but doesn’t make for a dramatic improvement when compared to any [...]
Londoners have been invited to an HTC event that’s currently underway, where the company promised to show them “what’s next”. A rumor said that this shindig would be a platform for the company to highlight some of its new Windows Phone handsets, rather than anything Android. Sure enough, Mango is the word, and so far HTC has debuted the Radar and Titan Windows Phone smartphones.
We had heard that the Radar (pictured above) might just be the HTC Omega that’s been in our sights for a while now, and so it is. The less-powerful of the two models, the [...]
AT&T has announced the HTC Titan together with its other Windows Phones running Mango — Samsung Focus S and Samsung Focus Flash — exactly one month ago and it appears that the carrier might be preparing a great deal on the phone.
If you want to test drive Windows Phone without having a device you can go to Facebook, allow the app access to your account and see a personalized demo of Windows Phone. The end of the demo features the text captured above which describes a BoGo (Buy-One-Get-One-Free) deal on the HTC Titan. Since then the line appears to have been [...]
In this video we take a closer look at the hardware of the HTC Titan, which touts impressive specs for a Windows Phone: it has a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon single-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, UMTS 850/900/2100 (allowing it to get on AT&T 3G in the US) and GSM 850/900/1800/1900. For imaging, it has a 1.3MP camera up front and an 8MP camera on the rear which takes 720p HD video. The display is a 4.7″ WVGA Super LCD panel, which provides a relatively low pixel per inch (ppi) measurement of 198. It weighs 160grams and is just a hair a centimeter thick at [...]
The next generation of Windows Phone is upon us, which includes the release of Mango, plus a wave of new hardware. Among the first batch of devices is the HTC Radar and Titan, the latter of which is the most powerful Windows Phone device yet, packing a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU (dual-core Windows Phones will arrive at some point, but not yet), with 512MB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, and a massive 4.7″ WVGA Super LCD display. There is a 1.3MP on the front allows you to use video chat, and the camera on the rear takes photos at 8MP with its F2.2 lens, which should offer great [...]
