HTC has finally unveiled the long rumored Windows Phone 7 Mango-based Eternity and Omega. The 4.7-inch Eternity's official name is Titan, while the smaller 3.8-inch Omega is now called Radar.

Both devices have leaked numerous times before and we already knew almost everything about them. Still it’s always a good thing to have an official confirmation, so here we go with the specs.

HTC Titan

HTC Titan is the bigger (big being operative here) smartphone with a 4.7″ S-LCD WVGA display and it's based on the Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chipset featuring a 1.5GHz single-core processor, Adreno 205 GPU and 512MB RAM.

The Titan has an 8 megapixel camera with 28mm lens, back-illuminated sensor, F2.2 aperture and a dual-LED flash, an HD camcorder, a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera, all kind of connectivity options such as HSPA, Wi-Fi N with DLNA, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, a microHDMI port and a 3.5mm audio jack. HTC's Titan also comes with 16GB internal memory and a secondary microphone for active noise-cancellation.

The HTC Titan runs on Windows Phone 7 Mango and packs an improved HTC Hub, Weather, Stocks, Audio booster and so on. The Titan will hit the shelves this October, but a price is yet to be revealed.

HTC Radar

The previously-known as Omega – HTC Radar has a 3.8-inch S-LCD WVGA display and is based on the same chipset as the Titan – MSM8255 Snapdragon but with a 1GHz CPU, Adreno 205 GPU and 512MB RAM. The camera resolution has been downgraded to 5 megapixels here, but the 28mm F2.2 lens and the back-illuminated sensor are kept in place.

The rest of the features too are almost identical with the Titan’s – a single LED flash, 720p video recording, HSPA, Wi-Fi N with DLNA, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 3.5mm audio jack. There is no HDMI port, secondary video-call camera or secondary microphone though.

HTC Radar

The WP7 Mango-running HTC Radar will pack 8GB internal storage and will also be coming this October.

Both the HTC Radar and Titan have unibody designs however the Radar's design is akin to the HTC Legend and does not have a removable battery.

The Dock

HTC is preparing docks for both the Titan and Radar, but they will be sold as separate accessories, docking the devices automatically switches the devices into a landscape-focused dock mode, however on the demo software we tried this seemed to be a little flaky.
