Handtec.co.uk sells them as well. I have read couple of reviews of this device and both likes the screen, camera and build quality of it a lot. This will also work on all three NZ mobile networks. Clove is a more popular choice on the internet to buy smartphones from overseas. Mobicity.co.nz also have the titan on pre-order.

Don't use MobiCity.

They put phones on sale but actually only discount the GST. So your actually never saving any money.

They also have been known to report items "being sourced from manufacturers" as "in stock". The most famous one was reporting the HP Touchpad as in stock when they were trying to get some from the final production run.

In short very dodgy company.

This guy has a Titan and was testing it http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1288786

It's heavier than the SGS2 but doesn't feel that much larger.

So far so good ... apart for an exchange issue which resolved itself ...
