I’ll be the first to admit the Motorola Milestone was a great phone, sure its bootloader was locked up beyond all belief, but its hardware was fantastic. What was the real down-side to the Milestone was how long it took any carrier to bring it to Australia, which lead to its poor sale. Now Motorola are hoping to prevent that from happening again with the Milestone 2, by announcing today that it will be coming ‘down-under’ (I promise I won’t use that term again) in December on both Vodafone (Three?) & Optus.
The Milestone 2, is the Milestone but twice as good.. I think. But here’s some of its key features:
- Android 2.2
- 1GHz CPU
- 3.7″ (854×480) Capacitive Display
- Hardware QWERTY Keyboard
- WiFi b/g/n (w/ Tethering)
- HSPA 900/2100MHz
- 5MP Camera (w/ 720p recording & dual flash)
It’s good to see a proper QWERTY keyboard device hit the market, if only Telstra would release one..
