HTC Titan II, which comes with a large on-screen keyboard, will offer instant access to Windows Phone Office Hub, Microsoft Exchange 2010 and Outlook Mobile. Tile display will bring the latest updates and news from popular social networks directly to the home screen. The phone will also let customers download exclusive HTC applications for free within Windows Markplace through HTC Hub. The phone also offers support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.
The HTC Titan II is expected to become available exclusively from AT&T in the US in the coming months.
Most of the smartphones being unveiled in CES are available through the service providers’ networks in US and the customers can buy them at affordable monthly rentals. They don’t have to pay the full price at the time of buying the new devices. Unfortunately, such type of plans are not available in India and hence customers hesitate to buy expensive devices like Apple iPhones, etc. Hope, in India also the service providers will replicate the plans offered overseas, for ease of its customers.
