Motorola MILESTONE preview: First look

GSMArena team, 31 December 2009

Motorola must have enjoyed the feel of ropes against their back. There's no other explanation for the MILESTONE.

But that last one marks the end of a particularly steep downhill stretch.

And they have changed, the new angular look is a testament to that. The S40 on the inside has changed as well, throwing Ovi Store and basic multi-tasking into the mix.
