First in the market.

HTC today debuted the first 4G Windows Phone to enter the Australian market, teaming up with Telstra to launch the Titan 4G.

The smartphone targets business customers already familiar with Microsoft software. It runs on Windows Phone 7.5, which offers Exchange ActiveSync mobile email and Office Hub along with Microsoft’s SkyDrive online storage and file sharing service. 

The Titan 4G is powered by 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor and 1GB RAM. It is on the larger side for a smartphone - measuring 132mm long including its 4.7in display. 

The handset boasts a 16MP camera with 720p HD video recording, as well as a 1.3MP camera on the front. 

The Titan 4G will retail through Telstra for $78 per month on a 24 month plan for business customers, and $79 per month for 24 month for consumers, from Tuesday.

It is available for outright purchase of $888.
