Even though I a life-long member of the Cult of Mac, I’m a big fan of the HTC products – which is why I’m singling them out and writing this post in recognition of their product announcement today at CES.

HTC has introduced the HTC TITAN II as the company’s first Windows Phone to run on a 4G LTE network. Yes folks we’re writing about a Windows Phone – You’ll never accuse THE Tech Scoop of not being open-minded and biased !!

The HTC TITAN II has a 4.7-inch super LCD capacitive touchscreen display, a 16-megapixel camera with a wide-angle lens, autofocus, dual LED flash, red eye reduction, image stabilization, a backside-illuminated sensor and a physical camera button, offering a viable replacement for digital point-and-shoot cameras. The HTC TITAN II delivers a number of features that HTC has developed to help consumers capture photos in a variety of conditions; for instance, panoramic shot for sweeping landscapes and burst shot for action photography. The smartphone also enables 720p HD video recording with the rear-facing camera, as well as on-the-go video chat over Wi-Fi with its 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

The HTC TITAN II is expected to become available exclusively from AT&T in the U.S. in the coming months.
