This week we've gotten the opportunity to get our hands on one of the first Windows Phone devices in the world to run on an LTE network, the HTC Titan II carried by AT&T. This device has a massive 4.7-inch WVGA super LCD capacitive touchscreen, runs on a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, and works with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Perhaps the device's most impressive specification is its utterly massive 16 megapixel camera.

This device is both sleek at .4-inches deep, works with Flash 16 GB eMMC, and has 512 MB DDR2 RAM. What this device represents is the oncoming flow of LTE Windows Phone devices as coming down first from AT&T in a collection of smartphones. With this 5.2-ounce beast, we're sure Microsoft lovers and new smartphone users alike will be keen to get onboard. But that camera - it's just fabulously large.

This device's back-facing camera setup contains a f/2.6 28mm wide angle lens, 720p video capability, dual LED flash, and a dedicated camera button. The front-facing camera is a 1.3-megapixel shooter for video chat. The back facing camera is set to be the topmost powerful smartphone-based shooter on the market here in the USA. Have a ball working with Mango on this beast - coming SOON. Price and release details coming soon.

Also check out our history with the original HTC Titan to see where this device gets its cool roots - any rather popular HTC Windows Phone deserves another.
