I don’t usually make any announcements on this site.  Sure, I’ll spew anger about customer service, or discuss my experiences with dropping cable, but the majority of my articles are focused on software development.

Yesterday, however, HTC announced two new devices for the Mango release of Windows Phone, and they’re just too cool not to talk about.  They are the HTC Titan and the HTC Radar.


HTC Radar

In terms of unique good looks, this is probably the prettiest Windows Phone I’ve seen so far.  I’ve seen some blurry screenshots of some Nokia phones that are coming, but until they’re announced, this one is the king.

It’s got all of the goodness of Mango pre-installed, so that’s a huge plus, but it also includes a front-facing camera.  We’ll have to wait to see the specifics on how that will be used.

HTC Titan

While certainly not nearly as attractive as the Radar, Titan’s got specs that would make most phones blush.

  • 4.7” screen
  • 8 megapixel camera
  • Up to TEN hours of talk-time battery life.

The HTC Titan, like the Radar, is also cut from a single piece of metal, which gives it a much more solid feel in your hands.

I will likely be looking to pick up a Titan when they come out, assuming it lands with the right carrier.  Which one would you pick?

Analysts agree that a mix of emulators/simulators and real devices are necessary to optimize your mobile app testing - learn more in this white paper, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs.
