Motorola Milestone XT720 Now Available To Order

Motorola’s Milestone XT720 is now on sale in the UK, with an official release date of tomorrow (20th July 2010).

Prices for the device SIM free are between £360 and £382 including VAT. For your cash you’ll get an unlocked phone running Android 2.1 Éclair, sporting an 8-megapixel camera with face and smile detection and Geotagging. According to Motorola, it’s also the first Android based phone to feature a Xenon flash.

What’s more, it will also record 720p video at 24fps and has a microSD slot that will take memory cards up to 32GB in capacity.

The XT720 also eschews the keyboard of the first model, instead relying on the 3.7in, 480 x 854 resolution capacitance touch screen for input.

It’s pretty much a given that Motorola’s mobile phone business only remains a going concern because of Android, so the company is no doubt hoping the XT720 matches or outdoes the success of the first Milestone, which we were pretty impressed by when we reviewed it back in February.

With specs like these, the MileStone XT720 has the potential to take on the much desired er, HTC Desire, so it will be worth seeing how the XT720 fares.

Does this latest effort from Motorola tickle your fancy? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

I'll reserve judgement until I read the TR review! Looks kinda cool, not sure about the 'sticky out bit' thought.

I think after all the delayed updates of the HTC Hero 2.1 ROM (still only in Asia and Europe) I will definitely switch to vanilla Android now. This looks like a great start, but maybe if I am lucky I can get a Nexus One if I find a new one floating around in Dubai ;).

Is the Milestone too long in the tooth now to consider? Also when will we get a review of this handset, time frame wise? Thanks Benny.
