Does anyone use this phone in U.S. with AT&T? Can it work with AT&T's 3G?
Rizwan, 15 Dec 2009i think there is no real user of MILESTONE......
all opinion looks like a advertisement of MO... moreIm posting this from milestone (argentina) so i think there are some milestone users here and not just moto fans.
Mobileman is the classic example of a troll, are you jealous of the qwerty? The cam is not the best but it takes beter pics and videos than some nokia and SE of the same price range. Also the music player is defult of android, so go bash X10 and HTC too if you are so macho.
wow... the cam its soooo bad!!! the music player its sooo bad.. a $2 dollar keyboard... come on!!!! why a cortex processor for this piece of shix!
androind interface looks older.. like windows 3.1

Anonymous, 12 Dec 2009Ya agree radio could be better but dont care here in usa So why not take out radio on Droid and make radio available on Milestone? Afterall, one is CDMA and the other is GSM...and they're sort of different.
It seem Motorola with this phone have dun nice idea about the docking station, but there is lot's of bugs with camera and keyboard, and as for down clocking CPU it may be the reason there is hardware malfunction warming up and may drain battery quicker, that's why i suppose this phone is not that good as it looks on cowers, for more you can see on engadget review about this phone.

Lets go MOTOROLA
If you’re a numbers type of person, then the 5-megapixel camera on the Motorola DROID wins by a long shot versus the 3-megapixel sensor used on the Pre and iPhone 3GS. There’s plenty of good detail and rich color tones in images captured on the DROID. With its high pixel count, the DROID does take some time in saving photos before proceeding to take another shot – it’s not too much of a problem when you consider the quality it provides. Out of the three, the Pre performs the weakest partly because it lacks an auto-focus which is essential in getting the best detail. Fortunately, the Pre is able to take shots consecutively with barely a pause – even when using the flash it still maintains a short break between shots. The iPhone 3GS doesn’t rival the DROID’s pixel count, but it did a good job in reproducing vivid colors while detail was better than the one on the Pre.
The DROID triumphs in the video capture category with its ability to shoot at DVD-like quality – it’s very detailed and runs smooth with no indication of choppiness. The iPhone 3GS also performed well even though its maximum video capture resolution is a bit less versus the DROID. Nonetheless, it’s still usable in saving those precious memories. Unfortunately software limitations have placed the Palm Pre in the boat of no video capture ability – we’re sure that down the road this feature will be available.
All three phones are able to view a variety of video codecs ranging from H.264 to MPEG4 – but we have to say that the Motorola DROID makes for the best experience watching a video. Its high resolution screen really places it well ahead of the Pre and iPhone – making it suitable to watch videos on the go.
Apple has transformed the way apps are marketed and sold thanks to the introduction of the App Store. The iPhone 3GS has by far the most compelling and eclectic mix of applications to appease anyone’s appetite. With over 100,000 apps available and growing, the iPhone 3GS truly does have an app for just about anything. It may seem far-fetched, but Apple has its own niche in the gaming market – we’ve seen beautiful 3D games run smoothly on the handset. Sure there are plenty of free applications to download on the App Store, but Apple has proven that money can be made with paid apps.
Luckily for Android, it isn’t too far away from replicating Apple’s successes. Android has steadily pushed out some decent apps on the Android Market and the Motorola DROID gets treated to some spectacular Google based applications – like Google Maps Navigation. It’s right on pace with applications that rival the ones on the iPhone 3GS, but lacks in the 3D gaming department. They’re mostly simple apps right now and we hope to see a rapid growth in the development of application offerings in the coming years. With a good amount of handsets offering Android, we will see a rapid growth in the development of applications in the coming years
The Motorola DROID is easily, of course, the best Android phone to date for web browsing. Omitting multi-touch support may be glaring at first, but its lightning quick page loads and seamless scrolling makes for a decent experience. With some impressive hardware powering the handset, the DROID is capable of also opening multiple windows without a hitch in performance.
both the iPhone 3GS and Motorola DROID displays YouTube embedded links to watch videos. The iPhone 3GS does the best to resize a web page for the most optimal viewing on a touchscreen. In addition, it loads up pages super fast which is closely rivaled to the Motorola DROID. These devices are the cream of the crop on their perspective carriers, so they perfectly emulate the desktop experience on a mobile level.
The Motorola DROID steers off the path with two separate applications to access your emails. Hands down the DROID implements Gmail to the fullest thanks to its superb replication of the desktop experience. Your emails in Gmail are viewed in a threaded format which makes it really simple to view messages you’ve replied to and read. In addition, there’s a whole separate application to view your other emails – we still scratch our heads as to why this is so. You can choose to combine your inboxes to one which is broken down by a color coding system. Now on the downside is the fact that the DROID requires to constantly pull emails from the server to view them on the phone. Unlike the Pre and iPhone 3GS where messages are downloaded and stored locally on the handset, the DROID has to download them on the go as you move through your long list of messages. Even though it’s a champ when it comes to Gmail, the Pre and iPhone 3GS have a much more versatile email applications.
Android has proven itself in being the king when it comes to creating a slick looking interface. Being able to use various personalized applications instead of the stock ones is definitely worth noting here. Add in the fact that there are three homescreens to personalize to your liking, we know there’s an almost limitless way of making it your own. It might not have the iPhone 3GS’s fluid interface or WebOS’s ingenious switching between apps; the Motorola DROID manages to share everything we like about both of those platforms with Android 2.0. Similar to the Palm Pre, there is a universal search function that enables users to use the physical QWERTY to search the handset for just about everything – these include contacts, applications, bookmarks, and Google searches
All three platforms make setting an appointment in your calendar a breeze – you’ll be able to view it in either a daily, weekly, or monthly view. It’s no surprise that the Palm Pre takes top honors in being able to immerse the user in a new fancy way of multi-tasking between applications. If speed is your kind of thing, then the iPhone 3GS will enthrall you with its lightning quick reflexes in opening and running programs. Then there’s the Motorola DROID which takes personalization to a new level in its dynamic depth of personalizing options
