No, I haven't bought 100 Moto phones in my life yet...
edward, 07 Jan 2010It's funny that for a device that literally changed everything 3 years ago, so little has real... morethe "radio" (which iphone doesn't offer, and to be fair, so is Milestone) talk-show host in my area once joked about the iphone....it was originally designed to be a rocket to the moon, only Apple decided to release a few features at a time.
My wife is using iphone, and she is quite happy about it. As perfect as it might be, I still prefer Moto phones, which like Milestone, I can swap the battery and insert external memory card, so I can put files simply by plugging in my card to any computer without installing i-tune.
unfortunately Milestones are only available as 2.0 where I live, as I'm waiting for 2.0.1.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2010iphone 3gs is anyway beter It's funny that for a device that literally changed everything 3 years ago, so little has really changed about the device itself. What made the iPhone originally great has been largely left untouched--the UI, Mobile Safari, iPod--all still great, all still the same.
Even the design of the phone hasn't changed, your eyes aren't fooling you if you think the iPhone 3GS looks exactly like the iPhone 3G because well, it is the same. And to drive in that point, last year's model and this year's model have both maintained the same shape of the original iPhone. Imagine, this is a phone that has been roughly the same (design-wise) for some 3 years now.
So what has changed hardware-wise from last year to this year? Apple has added video recording, a better camera, a crazy fast processor (similar to what's in the Droid), double the hard drive space (from 8GB & 16GB to 16GB & 32GB) and from our point of view, that's about it.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2010iphone 3gs is anyway beter Fact: the iPhone lacks third party multitasking. That's a huge deal for some users and non-existent for others. The option to do it would be great but exiting and jumping into a new applications on the iPhone is so quick and push notifications is good enough, that it's an almost serviceable workaround (almost). Would I want a way to multitask? Absolutely. Do I miss it immensely when I use an iPhone? Not really, but that's me. If you're deeply invested in multitasking, mark my words, the iPhone 3GS is not for you (but you probably knew that already!).
Make no mistake, I'm a huge fan of the iPhone and am sincerely thankful for its introduction some three years ago. It's very likely that I will own one for the rest of my life for its media capabilities alone. If it seems as if I was too tough on the iPhone, it's only because I expect a lot from the platform. But after becoming so familiar with Android, it's hard to go back to a phone, any phone, that can barely handle notifications, can't run widgets and offers very little customization. I want my phone to be mine, not Apple's. Android has simply changed my needs in a smartphone to the point where the iPhone isn't enough anymore. But that's me.
For those of you considering the iPhone? It's a great phone that can pretty much do everything you expect it to and because of 'there's an app for that', it can do more things other phones can't. There's definitely a number of users where the iPhone won't work at all--if you need a physical keyboard, if you need multitasking, if you need a replaceable battery, if AT&T is horrendous in your area--don't get an iPhone 3GS, look somewhere else. But if that doesn't apply to you, get an iPhone, despite my complaints, it's still one of the best options on the market.
Or you can remember that everything the princess phone can't do, Droid does. =) We kid.

Motorola Backflip Is Official, Probably Headed to AT&T
Motorola just announced the Motorola Backflip at their CES press conference. We've seen this quirky device before, remember, this isn't a slider-type device but rather the keyboard is on the outside and it flips backwards (?) when necessary--hence, the name. It comes with your usual slew of 3G, Wi-Fi, and 5-megapixel camera. Also of note, it's going to be running Motoblur.
Motorola didn't reveal which carrier it's going to land on but educated guesses point to AT&T since AT&T announced today that they'll be carrying a Motorola Android device with a unique form factor. Backward facing and folding keyboard counts as unique, right?
Oh, we almost forgot. The Backflip will run Android 2.1
Motorola Droid & Cliq Getting Android 2.1, Droid to Get Flash 10.1 like milestone
Don't worry Droid & Cliq owners, you're not going to be left in the dark. Motorola also announced that they'll be bringing both the Motorola Droid & Motorola Cliq to Android 2.1. Which means we should be able to enjoy all the goodies that made the Nexus One so jaw-droppingly sexy on our Motorola Android phones. We're definitely interested in seeing Motoblur and Android 2.1 interact, but that's a discussion for another day.
But the news doesn't stop there for Droid owners. Not only will they receive Android 2.1 but Motorola has been working on Flash 10.1 integration and has optimized it for the Droid chipset, which means yes, your Droid will soon have official Flash support. On top of that, the Droid should get a second maintenance update in the near future. Score big for Droid.
Since yesterday wasn't such a good day to be a Droid owner, today is shaping up totally different! What do you guys think?
Chevy Volt getting Android counterpart
When the Chevrolet Volt electric car because available later this year, it'll do so with an Android counterpart in tow. A Volt application for Android (and the iPhone and BlackBerry Storm) is in the works that will let you communicate with the Volt and manage how it's charging.
Connecting through the OnStar service, there's a bank of standard gauges that will show you the car's status. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. From there, you receive reminders to plug in the vehicle (how weird does that sound?), or recharging power is cut. That not smart enough for you? You can set the car to only charge during off-peak utility times. You can turn on the heat or AC remotely while it's still plugged into the grid, saving the battery.
There's a demo available now for the Motorola Droid at OnStarMobileDemo.com. This isn't quite Jetsons flying car stuff, but it's definitely getting closer.
Google Nexus 2 might from Motorola??
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2010but n900 has gpu

n900 540 eur
bukas, 06 Jan 2010serious guy..i wanna little help..i hope that u can clear a little things that makes my mind s... moretoday is android world and meamo is unknown
you can update your milestone very well from v2 to v2.1
and you can search in android market over 20,000 apps for download .
i never say n900 is bad ! but the big problem of n900 is lack capacitive screen and multi touching method
this above spec are very very important today that even nexus dont use multi touching
good things about n900 are much more internal memory and unemployed radio(i never use radio in my zn5)against milestone can support more sd card 32gb that is enough for all my life
milestone use faster 3g(HSUPA,5.76Mbps)network for access internet and widget and the support flash v10.1 (n900 use flash v9.4) and the pinch zoom(multi touch) in milestone help u very well to search easy in the big internet world
the qwerty in milestone has much more space than n900 and milestone has 5-way navigation key
this is not best qwerty at market but is beter than very rival , i think just g1 has beter keyboard
milestone has much more google application cause this is android phone
other spec are like cpu - ram - rom - camera -...
and at last however the design is are alittle like but some pepole like n900 design and some like milestone design
and dont forget milestone just has 13.7 mm thick
this is thinest slider smartphone at world
serious guy..i wanna little help..i hope that u can clear a little things that makes my mind sick..i want a true n honest answer..between this droid n nokia n900 which one is more better??
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970milestone = very beter design&quality- fast 3g- physical keyboard - multi touch -beter camera
nexus = more MHZ cpu- radio -trakpad - ugly design
so if you want smart phone with qwerty slider i recommend you milestone is best around and unrivaled
but if you want smartphone with out physical keyboard like nexus i have more candidate for you ?!
moto XT800 -XT701 -MT710
htc hd2 - se x10
my choice that above is xt701 for awsome design and zenon flash plus superb milestone display and via third party and great features and radio (i never use radio)
