Motorola’s smartphone behemoth has finally arrived on our shores though no network has yet announced availability of the phone so you'll have to go online to purchase it.
The Milestone 2 is the Euro version of the Droid 2, and is a high-end beast offering a 3.7in display with 480 x 854 resolution and a slide-out Qwerty keyboard, which Motorola claims is better laid out and easier to type on than the first model. Basically they’ve made the keys a little bit bigger.
Unveiled at the same time as the Defy last September, the Milestone 2 is powered by a 1GHz processor and has 8GB of memory built-in, which can be expanded on thanks to an SD card slot that can accept 32GB cards. The 5-megapixel camera can now capture at 720p. You can now purchase this phone from a number of online retailers with prices averaging around the £380 mark.
Shipping with Android 2.2 Froyo, the Milestone 2 is your only option for a Motorola phone running this flavour of the Android OS. You also get 802.11n Wi-Fi, it can function as a WiFi hotspot and it can even share media over a network thanks to DLNA support. As a larger phone, it can accommodate a hefty battery, so it should be able to deliver its heavy feature loan for a decent amount of time.
