Motorola Milestone XT720 will have T-Mo compatible bands

9

Motorola’s newest device, the Milestone, is officially coming to Europe soon, with pre-orders starting June 11th at Play and Expansys. As the title suggests, Milestone’s bands are 3G compatible with T-Mobile USA, but whether the device will make an appearance across the pond is still unknown. If you’re looking for something a little different for your T-Mo account and don’t mind importing, here is what you can expect from Motorola Milestone:

  • Android 2.1
  • 8MP camera with digital zoom with Xenon flash
  • Maps and GPS: Standalone GPS/E-compass, 2D/3D accelerator for graphics
  • Video: HD video capture at 720p, video playback onto HDTV via HDMI cable
  • Screen: 3.7″ 480×854 WVGA
  • Touch-sensitive navigation controls,  multi-touch input method, accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate, proximity sensor for auto turn-off

The Milestone is going for £449.99 retail. If you’re interested in reading more, head over to AndroidSPIN’s phone database to read the full spec sheet.

    Glad to see that Android Spin decided to do a story on this device. It looks really promising with decent stats and has such solid good looks to match.

    This is not the milestone. The milestone is the droid with an updated bootloader.

    Unless I am missing something, there is no mention of the 1700/AWS band that T-Mobile uses in the United States. Without this band, there is no 3G service to be had with this phone. I am only saying this because the spec sheet that is linked to in the article does not show the 1700/AWS band at all:

    If I’m wrong, please let me know.
