    got it in the mail today which was a big surprise since they told me yesterday I was getting the phone mailed to me

    anyway, so far I don't see the big deal, it's almost identical to the 6700, which I loved...I know it accesses a faster network but as far as the hardware, seems the same

    this one is thinner though, and I guess they were going for light but that lightness makes it feel pretty cheap

    it's got more hardware buttons which is great, I assign those buttons and they come in handy, it's got a very bright screen too

    I haven't made any calls but I'm told the sound isn't much improved, and there are still volume issues however I just got done with voicemail and the speaker phone volume is about twice the 6700 so that's great right there

    battery life is supposed to be excellant but I never had a problem with the battery on the 6700 so that doesn't phase me

    over all, not real impressed yet, what is so special and what can I do that I couldn't do with the 6700?

    I know they are claiming this is microsofts answer to the iphone but really, I don't see it, the screen isn't nearly as nice as the iphone

    anyway, when some of you guys get yours tell me what this thing does that I couldn't do with my old phone

    btw

    the reason they sent me this is they couldn't fix my 6700 and they didn't have any of those any more so this is my replacement, first they gave me the 700w and now they are swapping that for this

    The HTC Titan (Mogul, 6800) is not a response to the iPhone. That would be the HTC Touch which is not available here in the US (yet).

    However, the Titan is a huge improvement over the HTC Apache (6700). At least it should be; hardware and software wise.

    will this phone support "touch" when it is available?

    as fare as the huge improvement in the software, care to elaborate?

    I thought the 6700 os was excellant

    WM6 > WM5 hands down; especially when coupled with Exchange Server 2007.

    The only device to support TouchFLO at this time is the HTC Touch.
