Well, currently I am hooked on to the Samsung Omnia, the 8.1 megapixel camera and the OS as winmo 6.5 makes this phone so conplete that I would recommend most users to look into this one
The battery cover issue is easy to fix in about 10 seconds. The metal clip inside is supposed to stick out a bit but sometimes doesn't, all you have to do is bend it out a little and problem is fixed. Some people have used a folded business card under the battery to push the clip up. Either way works.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Likely it will be launched in HK around mid-Dec, and most likely for rest of Asia.
Anonymous, 25 Nov 2009I have used Moto Phone since first generation star Trek till now. But Milestone has battery co... moreI can tell you're really a Moto user....as you called your old phone StarTREK? Moto never made any phone called StarTREK.
The StarTAC I used never had any battery (cover) problem, as the battery itself was part of the phone's surface.
In your previous message you sounded like you've used hundreds of Moto phones and most/all of them have battery cover problems. Then when I asked you about the specific models you used that you encountered the battery cover issue, you gave me StarTREK???
FYI, I have been using Moto phones since 2nd generation DynaTAC, then MicroTAC BEFORE the StarTAC days.
I'll get a Milestone as soon as the phone is available where I live. Rumor is it will launch around mid-Dec, and by then I'll definitely share with you here if I encounter any battery cover issue.
its' USA web site says:
AAC, H.263, H.264, MP3, MPEG-4, WAV, WMA, eAAC+, OGG, AMR WB, AMR NB, AAC+, MIDI
i wonder why should i pay huge money for this device to get those playable formats
gsm please update your information about this phone and very soon write review about this super phone
It’s thin. Just slightly thicker than an iPhone 3GS and the thinnest QWERTY-slider we’ve ever seen.
It is the fastest Android device we’ve ever used. (It’s running a TI OMAP3430 processor)
The feel of the device is very reminiscent of the OQO 02 model computer. Just smaller.
It’s metal with a non-spring-assisted slide, very sturdy, and half soft-touch plastic.
Awesome capacitive display. Plus it’s huge. Easily the best screen we’ve ever seen on an Android handset, and an amazing screen overall.
The QWERTY keyboard is actually pretty usable and has a soft-touch rubberized finish. We’ve been told the keyboard design isn’t final on this unit, thus the two no-shows. Have we mentioned this phone flies? It’s the Android device to beat, and easily the most impressive.
From what we’ve been told, Google had a direct hand in the Motorola Droid. Something to the point of almost dictating every move Motorola made when designing and making the phone. Interesting, huh? There’s a desktop cradle/charger that will ship with the Motorola Droid that we’ve been playing around with. It turns your Droid into a “multimedia station” and displays local weather, the time, etc. No one wants to listen, but it makes the CLIQ looks like a child’s toy (partly because it is, and partly because the Droid, even in its non-final form, is the most impressive phone we’ve used since the iPhone. It’s positively amazing).

Another video from the same person that has problem with battery cover. After he got a new cover the problem still the same. So he inserted a piece of papaer to make it tight, How could you call this phone is the best. The best but there will be a better one. Motor has to keep pushing so there will no issue in bulid quality. design and software,
This is a first generation phone, it's going to have a few problems. The camera has a bug in the programming, Motorola fixed it. The battery cover on some of the units is loose, Motorola is fixing that for free. You guys bashing this phone need to relax.
If they could improve the physical keyboard, polish the Android OS and maybe add in a camera lens cover then this phone would be ideal for me. Can't wait for Droid/Milestone 2.0
If you want to know Milestone has issue on battery cover or. Open the link. The same person posted his complaints via video twice. Moto fan should learn to accept the issue as well .
100 Moto, 25 Nov 2009Exactly how many Moto phones you have used that have loose battery cover? Currently I am usin... moreI have used Moto Phone since first generation star Trek till now. But Milestone has battery cover issue. open up your eyes not just said Moto is the best for every thing ????
hoping that motorola will go back to the philippines...and droid phone a.k.a. milestone and cliq phone will be available as well..
