HTC Titan II to debut on AT&T April 8th for $199.99

It's going to be a bigger day for Windows Phone on April 8th than we first thought. Following the official announcement that the Windows Phone-based Nokia Lumia 900 will go on sale on that day on AT&T, Engadget reports that that same wireless provider will also begin selling the HTC Titan II on that same day. Unlike the Lumia 900, the Titan II will be sold on AT&T for a relatively pricey $199.99 with a new two year contract when compared to the 900.

The HTC Titan II is basically an upgraded version of the original HTC Titan smartphone, which made its debut in November in the US. This new version was first announced at CES 2012 in January and has most of the same hardware features as the first Titan with a big 4.7 inch screen, a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S2 processor and a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera.

The two big hardware changes for the Titan II are that it will support AT&T's faster LTE wireless network and that it will have a rear facing camera with 16 megapixels. It remains to be seen if those two features will be enough to justify the $199.99 price tag compared to the Lumia 900's more reasonable $99.99 price point.

Nokia will end up selling more Windows phones on ATT then HTC esp at the 99.99 price point, lets not forget it has more color selection which is appealing to buyers as well. The HTC Titan II is a nice phone but for Windows phone I like Nokia better. For android pones HTC and Samsung seem to have the best choices IMO.

Well I lost my HTC Titan, 2 days ago, even with the 'Find my Phone' it is useless to hope. So now April 8th will be an interesting day.. will I opt for a HTC Titan II for the same price, see if the original Titan drops in price, or perhaps a Lumia 900.

God WHY does verizon have to insist that Windows Phone isn't the answer... I love Verizon's service but the charge up the ass for phones and then all their phones are garbage. I will never buy another Motorola phone after my Bionic. Loved my original Droid... Now I want a Windows Phone because I feel it suits my needs better but Verizon will never have any..

They have the HTC Trophy, it is a reasonable phone, and so much faster than what have been using.

Due to contracts and their 3G coverage in areas I have obligations I was like you, and needed Verizon and WP7.

I wanted to wait for LTE and a better camera, etc. However I we had tested the Trophy and I picked it up to get by until Verizon gets their head on straight.

I haven't regretted it a bit, and even if I have to eat the fee to upgrade earlier, it will have been worth it. I still haven't found a new Android phone I would trade the HTC Trophy for in daily use.

LOL, Lumia > HTC

While I agree more or less there are those who would like the bigger 4.7" screen in the end.

I suggest you actually pick up and play with the Titan , cause the fit and finish on the phone is amazing.

Lumias are nice no doubt, but so is the Titan

Another great looking phone going to Americas worst cellular provider.

Weird, I thought it said it was from ATT, not Virgin Mobile.
