Telstra Officially Announces Australia’s First 4G Windows Phone

The insider information earlier this month from WPDownUnder was indeed correct about the arrival of the HTC Titan II in Australia this May. This time, WPDownUnder brings all the launch information from Telstra concerning the HTC Titan 4G (Australia’s version of the Titan II). The HTC Titan 4G will launch next Tuesday, May 29, 2012 on the Telstra Mobile Network.

“Australian small businesses have embraced smartphones to help them work where they want and to stay responsive to customers and new business opportunities. The launch of the nation’s first 4G Windows Phone means small businesses can perform even more advanced tasks from the palms of their hands – like handling larger emails on the go, capturing and sending high-resolution images and video  and accessing emerging cloud-hosted services direct from their smartphone screen.  Best of all, Windows Phone is incredibly easy to navigate and immediately familiar to anyone who uses Microsoft’s popular Office software,”

The notable features of the Titan 4G:

  • Lightning fast 4G speeds in 4G coverage areas.
  • 4.7 inch WVGA super LCD  capacitive screen
  • 16-megapixel camera with dedicated button, auto focus and dual LED flash; 1.3 megapixel front facing camera
  • 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S2 processor
  • Mobile Wi-fi Hotspot or Internet Connection Sharing.
