HTC has been rumoured to display Windows Mango running phones on September 1st this year, for a while now. The smartphones that would run Mango were rumoured to be the HTC Omega and HTC Eternity. However, at IFA in Berlin, HTC did display two Windows Mango-powered smartphones and they were the HTC Titan and HTC Radar.

The Titan has HTC's largest mobile screen yet with a 4.7-inch display. It has a 1.5 GHz processor and an 8 MP camera. It comes with Microsoft Office Mobile support. Managing multiple e-mail inboxes is made easier with e-mail features like Linked Inboxes.
