Motorola Milestone 2 Here And Sim Free

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.

Just to point out, the thumbnail on this article is of the original Milestone!

A little crowdsourcing that I'd like to do, folks:

Please reply to this if you or anybody you know has ever used DLNA.

Review please! Pretty please! I'm deciding between this and a Desire-Z. I'm thinking this depending on when it gets network plans. the 1Ghz processor should make it Gingerbread compatible (though no guarantee it will get it of course) plus its cheaper sim-free than the HTC phone. Shame Motoblur isnt a patch on HTC Sense, but I still think overall I'm leaning towards the Moto. I just need TR to confirm/change my mind!

@Ryan I've used DLNA - it comes in handy streaming media from my PC to my PS3.

Back on topic. I don't think I can look at any new phone until the Nexus S is released.

Did you mean used DLNA on the phone or in general? I use a QNAP NAS to stream around the house to my Popcorn Hour & PS3 & Pinnacle Showcenter via DLNA.
