Titan II Brings Giant Screen, LTE and Mango to AT&T

When a phone form factor looks like it’s better suited for the side pocket of my cargo pants, I’m fairly likely to dismiss the device based on size. That said, the HTC Titan II, which will soon be available from AT&T has a fairly amazing looking 4.7-inch screen that almost makes me want one. The Titan II is running Windows Phone 7 Mango, comes with a 16-megapixel camera, 4G LTE radio, and a 1,730mAh battery to power that enormous screen. Just how big is a phone with a 4.7-inch screen? Check out some of the photos I took comparing the size of the Titan II to an iPhone 4.
Here’s the front view of the Titan II in my hand:

The design reminds me of something like the HTC Thunderbolt or a giant sized version of my old Google Nexus One. I don’t have very large hands and holding the Titan II made me think I’d need to use it with two hands for most functions, rather than the one-handed navigation I’m frequently able to do with my current myTouch 4G or with an iPhone 4.
