The original MILESTONE was the lifeline by which Motorola pulled themselves out of their deathbed. And now the once ailing giant breathes again Ė but is in no mood to rest or make peace. Instead, itís breathing fire on the enemies.
Motorola had itself a true droid army in almost no time Ė and the best thing is itís not an army of clones. Creative designs and rich equipment helped the company make an emphatic comeback, and the XT720 is focused on keeping up that momentum.
Itís not as simple as calling it a sequel Ė a QWERTY-less alternative of the original MILESTONE. 8 megapixels and a Xenon flash for a physical keyboard is a trade-off many users would be delighted to accept. But the Motorola XT720 is keen to offer more. It packs its punch with character and personality.
The Motorola MILESTONE XT720 will certainly be up against some tough competition. There are bigger screens out there and devices with better specs. And itís not a Snapdragon either, something thatís become almost standard at the high end. But the next MILESTONE for Motorola doesnít come unarmed. Letís take a look at the highlights of its spec sheet.
Judging by the list above this Droid is putting all the eggs in the camera basket. 8 MP stills and 720p videos are the best Android has to offer and this is the first time they come together on a single handset. And Xenon is a first for the platform. HDMI out is still novel enough to be a key selling point on its own.
And even though the MILESTONE XT720 is not currently running the latest version of Android, Motorola promise to deliver the Froyo update in due course so thereís no reason to get upset.
We are now about to check out if the performance is there to match the specs. We start with the styling and hardware right after the break.
