Has HTC managed to intrigue you with the extra-large screen and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango of its upcoming Titan smartphone? If you’ve been eagerly awaiting the handset’s arrival, the opportunity to snag one may have just presented itself, with third-party retail sales of the Titan apparently starting, and the phone all ready to ship out to customers.
Electronics retailer MyTrendyPhone is currently listing the HTC Titan as “in stock ready to ship”. The last information we heard about the phone’s European launch had it arriving October 4. We were expecting that the Titan would fetch a princely sum of about $850, and that’s quite within reach of what we’re looking at here, with MyTrendyPhone selling the Titan for just under the equivalent of $870.
Before you go grabbing your credit card, don’t forget that the Titan’s radio is set up for operation on the 850/900/2100 MHz bands for Europe and Asia; North American customers would be better-off waiting for the phone to be released with a proper, native radio. For that, though, you’ll just have to be patient for now. In the meantime, check out some video clips of the Titan in action.
