GSM-fueled Motorola MILESTONE a.k.a. DROID launches in Europe - read the full textThat didn't take long - the GSM version of the Motorola DROID is official and is headed for Europe. It's going to be called MILESTONE and Germany and Italy will be the first to get it, but the bad news is that it won't have the same perks as the US version. On the Motorola site, there's a page...

Actually it's not a 20 euro contract... it's just 20 euro financing. You buy the phone with a monthly payment, but you get no service from O2.

If you want some service, the price is higher.

It's fast because it's not multitask. imagine when you're chatting with your buddy, in the same time you want to check some information in your notes before get back to your buddy, you have to turn off your chat program and reconnect again later after you check your notes. It's a failure.

nothing to compare Google OS with iPhone OS. iPhone OS is fast.

WANT!! :)

Too bad the German one has a QWERTZ bord and not QWERTY. Will have to get it from Italy, also ok, but Germany would have been easier. Anyone know when it will launch in Holland yet?

And they may even justify N900 (will likely) carries a higher price tag than the almighty brand can spend more $ on various advertisements/promotions/commissions to benefit everyone except the end users.

At least Motorola made a $12 million profit last quarter which is better than an $850 millon loss like Nokia.

Nokia has a better build than Motorola. I can only laugh. And not only me, everybody in the cellphone business is laughing right now.

Speakers? Ho hum, my A780 sounds better than your Nokia.

O/S? Never mind talking about this. Moto is better, and that's for sure.

So, stop thinking about "N" is better than "M". "N" only ruled because of marketing and advertising. A Sagem or Sendo is better in build quality, speakers, and ergonomics. But both sad to say, have slower clock time compared to "N". Besides that, "N" is for those who want to use garbage...

Do you expect that their brains will suddenly use the "left hand" to control the D pad when they shift using between computers and cellphones..?

I think his cellphon will be the new benchmark for all to come. Whatever and however this website construtively and destructively describe it, there will be no escape for the truth: Motorola DROID/MILESTONE will be hard to beat.

And this should not stop here. Motorola developers should be thinking 3 steps ahead from here, and the company should be assembling the scion to this model.
