The HTC Titan II LTE just got Official during the CES 2012. First and most importantly, the HTC Titan II features an AMAZING 16 MP camera which is the first time to see such a powerful camera on a windows phone device (Mango)... probably the best HTC camera phone out there!
But the HTC Titan II camera is not the only thing making headlines in the Windows Phone world. The Titan II has the same 4.7-inch LCD as its predecessor, which is as large as it gets in WP land. The chipset inside this one is Qualcomm Snapdragon S2, featuring a 1.5GHz Scorpion CPU and there is LTE connectivity on-board. The Titan II will be exclusive for AT&T New LTE Network in the US.
Verizon has officially confirmed it will be offering an LTE version of Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet, the Super AMOLED Plus slate first unveiled back at IFA 2011. Running a 1.4GHz dual-core processor that drives a 1280 x 800 display and Android 3.2 with Samsung TouchWiz modifications, the Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE is just 7.9mm thick.
Along with LTE there is also WiFI b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS, along with a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera. The main cam can shoot 720p HD video, too. A mobile hotspot app can be used to share the 4G LTE connection with up to 10 WiFi devices or a 3G connection with up to five.
Nokia has officially announced the Lumia 900, as expected, an AT&T exclusive in the US and using the carrier 4G LTE network. Resembling an oversized Lumia 800, the Nokia Lumia 900 has a 4.3-inch AMOLED WVGA display and runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, complete with the Finnish company custom Nokia Drive and Nokia Music apps for turn-by-turn directions and subscription-free streaming music.
Inside, there is a 1.4GHz single-core processor, also as in the Lumia 800. On the back is an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash and autofocus, supporting 720p HD video recording; that resolution is a limit of Microsoft smartphone OS, at present, rather than whatever the optics in the phone itself. Still, you do get Carl Zeiss f/2.2 optics on the new Lumia, and a front camera has an f/2.4 lens.
Nokia has used the extra space inside the injected polycarbonate single-piece casing another thing carried over from the smaller Lumia and the N9 before it to accommodate a 1,830 mAh battery, and the phone itself will be available in either black or cyan. Preloaded is a special CNN app, with iReport features.

Verizon Communications Chairman and CEO Lowell McAdams sat down with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss football and entertainment the other day at CES 2013 in Las Vegas. Both talked about increasing the technology available to those attending a game, and since McAdams no longer is in charge of just wireless, the talk also covered the ways that those watching at home over cable could enjoy more interactive options.
But the highlight of the discussion was when McAdams revealed that Big Red is seeking to broadcast the Super Bowl to Verizon connected handsets over its 4G LTE network. Last year, Verizon streamed the game to its customers through the NFL Mobile app, but a broadcast would offer a more stable view of the game and would eliminate the buffering that takes away from the experience. McAdams said that a broadcast of the Super Bowl could take place as soon as the 2014 game.
The 2014 Super Bowl will be held at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey Next year.
Good news to the Galaxy S III lovers on 4G-Networks in Europe. Samsung is preparing to bring the LTE version of its flagship smartphone to markets outside Korea and US. Samsung Galaxy S III LTE will reportedly launch in Germany first, where the device is said to come in October.
The European LTE-enabled Galaxy S III unit will take after their Korean cousins, keeping the Exynos 4 chipsets. As you might know Samsung opted for the Snapdragon S4 chipsets in the US version of the smartphone. Price will be around €749 upon launch.
Samsung stated that it will be trying to integrate 4G LTE in its own line of system chips, and has seemingly delivered in a Quad-core Samsung Galaxy S III LTE that will sport the coveted 4G radio, destined for German carriers.
Now we actually doubt that Samsung is having the radio integrated, like in Qualcomm's Snapdragonchipsets, as it is too soon after the CEOs battlecry for Samsung to develop true SoCs, baseband radio integration and all, but this Exynos/LTE combo is still good to see outside the company's home turf, as it is also rumored to appear like that for Rogers in Canada.
The Galaxy S III 4G LTE Quad-Core version pricing will be around €740 which is about $940 SIM-free.
