Says here the screen size is an ordinary 3.7 inches whereas in two other articles in gsmarena it's quoted as having a much heftier 4.3 inches. Which is more likely to be correct? Thanks

So far this year I already bought 4 Moto Android phones: Milestone, Backflip (but sold already), Cliq (Dext), and Quench (Cliq XT), and I simiply love Moto phones with Android.

Overall I'm quite satisfied. Though I sure look for the following features:
- app to SD (which Android 2.2 should support)
- HDMI

and overall I do prefer phones with both touchscreen and keypad.

However, one of the reasons I got the Quench is for its....radio! Come on Moto, why you seem to be a bit reluctant to put radio on phones with qwerty?

The only Qwerty phone with radio so far is Flipout, which is not yet available where I live. However, most other touch only ones like XT701, 720, Quench, etc...all have radios.

If my understanding is correct, it's nothing more than just a chip and programming.

So when you make the GSM version, can you include radio on the phone as well? I understand many Americans don't need radio as they also have radio in their cars, and most stations play music which can be downloaded.

But radio is important in many other parts of the world, as where I live I mostly listen to talk shows, which aren't available else where.

So please add radio on GSM Milestone 2!!!

> In reply to incog @ 2010-08-10 18:19 from LBHM - click to readDude, did you realize recently GSM Arena has been reporting "CDMA ONLY" phones?

CDMA only phones simply do NOT run on the GSM frequencies being used in Europe and parts of Asia.

Much you praise about your E63, your E63 would get minimal reception throughout most of US, and probably no EDGE/GPRS in some central / south American countries, plus south Korea.

So can I say your "device" is bad because it doesn't work in some countries?

BTW, I call E63 being a device is due to the fact, when being compared to Droid 2 / Milestone, which offers the industry exclusive Crystal Talk technology, your "device" captures much more background noise than these Moto phones.

Motorola, please make a DROID 2 that is compatible for the GSM network! I really want to buy and use your phones, but I can't live with CDMA networks...

It's incredible how Google Nexus one still has the same or better specs than this phone seven months after it was introduced...

Well, that would be something that might be of interest. Missing usb-host.

The phone is good, at least with a bigger internal memory. Still lacking of the fifth line keypad row for the numbers. Whoever designs this phone must have thought that he is a genius. He doesn't realized that texting/typing numbers on a 4 row keypad without dedicated number pad is very troublesome, especially those with fat fingers and thumbs. The phone designer I suspected is having a skinny fingers. I sold my Nokia N900 because of the less perfect keypad. My E90 still stays with me though.
