HTC Titan III mysteriously appears in this month's Xbox Live Survey (Updated)
Update 12/4/12: Microsoft has let us know directly that this was indeed a typo and it has since been fixed on the survey. It now says Titan II.
Every month Xbox Live Rewards conducts a survey that is an easy way for Rewards participants to earn points. Well the December survey makes reference to something that is a bit of a mystery.
The survey asks if participants how excited they would be if they received the following smartphones as a gift. The survey includes the iPhone 5 (opens in new tab), Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx HD, Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC Titan III.
Not the Titan II but the Titan III.
The Titan III or Zenith was the third HTC Windows Phone that kept surfacing earlier this summer. The Zenith was rumored to have a 4.7" Super LCD 2 screen which would qualify it for Titan status. But as far as we know, the Zenith or Titan III never made it out of the cutting room.
We won't read too much into this with it likely being a typo by the Xbox Live Rewards staff. Then again, maybe HTC is planning for a early 2013 surprise?
Thanks, Nathan, for the tip!

Even if I'll stick with the 920, the more devices we have available, the more WP becomes popular :)
WP8 does not need quad-cores to run well but I still hope this monster from HTC is for real just to silence the remaining critics of WP who claim the OS is not as good as Android because it's not capable of running on quad-cores.
I knew it. I'm canceling my BACK ORDERED lumia RIGHT NOW!
I was disappointed upon the announcement of the line up of WP8 because i felt this "stereotypical HTC device" wasn't in the line up. The device I felt would be the most suitable was the Ativ S with that crazy screen and MicroSD slot, but Samsungs Phones arent as sturdy/concrete feeling as I'd like, AND it hasn't released in the US yet. WHOMP Thus i settled for the top device (L920). I knew it would have been a great device but i PERSONALLY wasn't all that excited about it. Everyone has their preference, mine happens to be a jumbo HTC device. Even if it is a typo, I'll still have my upgrade. No loss here. Just a phone kids.
But I think 1080p is the cut off, because above 1080p you REALLY wouldn't notice any difference on sub 5" displays no matter what the resolution.
But I'm also 100% certain a WP8 quad-core flagship will make an appearance probably mid-2013. It will probably come from HTC as their WP8 flagship but it very well might also come from Nokia as next step to the 920.
TITAN 3 going to be a monster smartphone
YOU'VE JUST MADE MY DAY!
2013 will be pretty exciting for WP8 as more flagships come out and the platform continues to grow and gain market share!
so at mwc or ces we will have a titan 3, but i wouldn't hold my breath on a 5 inch screen with full hd resolution
also nokia will have at the same time the 808 pureview with windows phone, plus all their mid-range devies and low end ones that are waiting to be launched for the second wave.
it will be a happy time next year
THIS ISN'T SO HARD MICROSOFT! YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO GIVE THE DAMN PHONE AWAY FOR FREE IF YOU JUST GAVE PEOPLE HIGH QUALITY OPTIONS IN ADDITION TO BUDGET PHONES LIKE THE 920.
The price is in Germany arround 600€ for the Lumia and 430€ for the Galaxy SIII (without contract of course)
Than again i can get each of them for 1 € depending on the contract
that being said i'll stick with my htc trophy a little longer until someone pulls their head out of their behinds and makes a beast of a windows phone that i will part with my hard earned money for. and on my htc trophy i have a 3000 mAh battery i bought off ebay for $11. lasts forever but i want the other specs as well.
And here in Europe it is selling well as far as I heard (without this offers)
I'm hoping for 32GB or expandable, 4.8ish", wireless charging, the wide front lense from the 8X, 768px wide rather than 720 and a front and back notification light like the DNA.
