THe photo samples also seem to have better dark shots. It does have a much bigger sensor and lens on the back after all.

Other than the camera and maybe the choice in build, and whether you want LTE or not, yeah the two Titans are like brothers.

Where did you read that ? Because the backside of Titan is mostly aluminum;whereas,Titan 2 has more plastic on the backside.(That's I think the reason Titan 1 is heavier)
Correct me if I'm wrong

You are absolutely right on Titan 1 being heavier. It's not that heavy but I would say sturdier. Titan 2 will come with a plastic backside, only to cover that chunky 16MP camera's add hardware. But then if it's LTE supported and your network provider doesn't do LTE yet, in my opinion it's worthless waiting for Titan 2. You will be getting a device that could have been sturdier, more HTC feeling than Samsung feeling and much better with battery life. However if Titan 2 comes with Tango and current fragmentation rumours are true, then Titan 2 would have issues making it to Apollo whereas Titan 1 might get Apollo faster. It's on pocketPC about Thurrott's claims indicating fragmentation is what MS will opt for. (I don't like it!)

What in the world are you talking about? Titan 2 is going to co-exist with Titan 1 as the higher end of the two devices. HTC said it themselves when people asked why they are releasing a new Titan when the first one has barely been out for a few months. Saying it is going to get Tango and be slower updated...

And no the Titan 2 is not a plastic phone. It follows the same design pattern as all their other phones. Metal unibody. Plastic on top around camera for the camera and wifi. Plastic on bottom for cell radios. The first Titan is not 100% metal either. The phone would not work otherwise with all the signal blockage. It's almost like you've never seen an HTC phone before. Most are metal build with rubber coating.

I never said T2 is plastic.I said most parts of it's backside is covered with plastic(unlike T1)
I guess we can judge better when the review come out

WP7 is definitely my choice, I now know you can't "hack" it but that doesn't bother me since it looks and feels exactly as I want it. 25th of Februrary = Titan

Don't know if It's going to happen on the Titan but if you look at other WP7 phones forums it might give you some idea of what has/ is happening as far as user development goes. Although not as customiseable as the other OS out there seeing what has happened to other devices and systems in the past might give you some idea of what you might be lucky enough to get in the future

Are you a student? If yes, you can unlock your phone for free and "hack it" as you wrote. If not, then you'll have to pay $99 for developper account.
Student go to Dreamspark, others go to the bank .
