It seems HTCâ€™s flagship Windows Phone, the HTC Titan, had made a quiet exit from the UK market.
Large online retailers Phones4U and the Carphone Warehouse both no longer show the device when searching for HTC handsets, and searching Vodafone, O2, Orange and T-Mobileâ€™s websites also do not show the device.
The reasons for the disappearance of the handset is not clear â€“ there is no LTE networks in UK, so there is not much point in releasing the HTC Titan II here. It may be that HTC has rationalized their range in UK, and withdrew the handset from the market.
Phones4U Customer service said:
If the handset disappears completely from the European market, it really only leaves us with one choice for a high-end Windows Phone â€“ the Nokia Lumia 900. I guess Nokia at the least would be happy for that, but I lament the Windows Phone market shrinking down to only one OEM, no matter how good the handsets are.
Thanks Sam for the tip.
