We reported earlier today that the HTC Titan is finally available for European customers interested in the handset. As the first users bring their Titans home, we’re learning a little more about the phone from their observations, including the discovery that the Titan does not use an internal microSD card for storage, but has higher-speed Samsung eMMC NAND flash.

The inclusion of microSD cards in WP7 handsets was always a bit odd, since users were never intended to casually swap them around, as Android owners do. While the presence of a hard-wired NAND chip means the possibility for upgrading the memory is totally gone, if users weren’t likely to attempt such a feat in the first place, why not just go with the faster NAND? We haven’t yet seen any hard figures about read/write performance, but they should confirm the chip’s speed.

It’s a bit odd that someone had to actually open up their Titan for this news to be known – after all, if it improves device performance, shouldn’t HTC be shouting its praises in its press release announcing the Titan? Admittedly, the difference between this and a microSD card might be esoteric to most WP7 buyers, but that’s what spec sheets are for!
