HTC Titan II Review

Over at AT&T you've got two giant choices for hero phones if you want to run with Windows Phone Mango - the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II. Your choices will be based on what you like the phone's hardware to look like, how nice the camera is, and how fabulous the software runs on either device.
