Faiyaz, 19 Jan 2011Hey guys i wanna know whether this phone is suitable for me or not. I am a hardcore motorola f... morejust to add on to anon's reply to u. 8GB internal memory and comes bundled in the box with an 8GB micro SD. so thats 16GB for u. more than enough if u ask me. but if u have a radio station collection of mp3's u can swap out the 8GB micro SD for a 32GB one.thats 40 gigs in total for u.
also since it uses a 3.5mm jack, u can connect any standard headphone, ranging from Bose to B&Ws to Bang & Olufsens to enhance ur music experience.
amit, 20 Jan 2011but this device lags like hell....its not buttery smoothi dont know what u have on ur device or what u have been using this device for mate, but i have friends using iphone 4 who tell me this is the most fluid interface they have seen.

Internet experience? This mobile has a big screen, with one of the biggest pixel density on the market, with 848x480 px of size. 3G connectivity, WIFI, the ability to serve as a hotspot to a maximum of 6 devices, and a qwerty keyboard, for improved typing
Android freak? This babe has Android Froyo, v2.2, and soon will be upgraded to 2.3. It also has 8gb of internal storage, more than plenty for all your apps (it's actually too much storage =P)
Like to text/talk? This babe has native integration with lots and lots of emails, really good message management, a qwerty keyboard for improved typing. Call quality is top notch, Motorola is known for its good call quality.
Loud? Not that loud like a boombox, but loud enough so you can enjoy music or handsfree calling. I'd say it's as loud as V8, or better.

Unboxing the Motorola MILESTONE 2, texting and SNS are in its blood
Time for another unboxing – on today’s menu is the Motorola MILESTONE 2, or DROID 2 as it’s called States-side. The Motorola messenger kept a lot of the highlights of the original, while updating much of the features. Here’s what we found in the box…
The Motorola MILESTONE 2 box includes the standard set of goodies – a charger, a one-piece headset and a microUSB cable. I also found a travel adapter in the box as the charger was of the UK variety.
There’s also an 8GB microSD card preinstalled (just like the original), but the MILESTONE 2 comes with 8GB of built-in memory too, for a total of 16GB out of the box.
Here comes the video of the unboxing along with a short peek at the user interface:
I’ll leave the details for the review, but here are the major selling points of the Motorola MILESTONE 2.
The Gorilla Glass protected screen is a 3.7” unit with 480×854 pixels resolution. Sliding it open reveals a four-row QWERTY keyboard. The slider is not spring assisted and not very easy to use – the keyboard at least looks comfy, but I’ll have to spend more time using it to pass a final judgement.
The OS is Android 2.2 Froyo running on a 1GHz CPU. It’s augmented by the MOTOBLUR UI version 1.5 – as expected, there’s SNS integration all around, but some other handy tools as well. There’s a Task manager preinstalled and there is also the Profiles setting, which is similar to Sense UI’s Scenes. Flash and Wi-Fi hotspot functionality are included too. Oh, and there’s one more update – the 720p HD video recording.
There’s a lot more to cover, but that will have to wait for the review.
Hey Moto if you are listening then pleaseee bring out next version of milestone with specifications of Atrix; i.e. 4" screen with resolution of 960x540, 1gb ram or even more, 1.2 ghz dual core processor, 16gb/32gb of internal memory, 2 megapixel video call camera and minimum 8megapixel primary camera, along with the keyboard of 'milestone' series.... This would be the best phone.....
Can anyone tell me what the loudspeaker is like on The Milestones.I us it alot for phone calls and playing music.
what is the correct price of this mobile coz in India it is being sold close to 500euros where as in gsmarena it is being displayed 290euros... i dont seem to connect the price diff :(
