this phone is NOW available it will be EXCLUSIVE to OPTUS for the first 6 months it will be released in the market in september 2010 and will be $0 on a 49 cap
Advantages- once you set up your motoblur which will register on your facebook,twitter,gmail only once and youl never have to register to log on ever again!
it will send you all the latest blogs profile updates posts messages to your mobile phone at no charge
and scince you have a registerd account on moto blur
if you lose your phone you would be able to trac it down on the motoblur website due to its AGPS!
and you would have the capability to ERASE all date via the web if needed and when you get a new phone all you do is log on to the phone using your old username and password and all the fetures will be back! Cool right!
just got this with orange....they informed me androis update 2.1 is on the way for this handset....anyone know when
Strengths: Motoblur is amazing (Happenings, messages and status updater widgets especially) Keyboard is amazing Screen is beautiful Phone calls are crisp and clear, no problems on either end Speaker on phone is loud (not recommended for listening to music, though), but works well with ringtones and speakerphone. Phone feels good in hand/comfortable Silence/Ringer switch like the palm pre Browser works quite well Videos play great Android Apps work well and there's plenty to choose from
Weaknesses: Battery life is a little short if you don't know how to download and manage your apps Camera isn't perfect (but this is a phone, not a camera so that's excusable) Android 1.5 is outdated (although word is we're getting our 2.1 update in 2Q 2010) Phone is sluggish if you don't properly task kill your apps when you're done using them. If your widgets are getting overloaded with info (like when you turn the phone on), the phone will be sluggish.
Overall: I am in love with this phone. Motoblur is a fantastic invention. It's true that it does get a little overwhelming sometimes (I have 50-60 pages to scroll through every morning), it is absolutely wonderful that I can keep up with so many of my friends without spending half a day on a computer. You can comment on wall posts, pictures, status updates, return pokes, etc. The only problem is that two way commenting is not available on myspace. You can look, but not comment. This is kind of lame and hopefully they'll fix it soon. Being connected is what's most important with me and my phone. I pay 80 bucks a month for 500 talk minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited data. It's nice to finally see a phone on the market that allows me to truly utilize the unlimited data. If you sign onto FB more than 2 times a day and have accounts to other places, buy this phone and save yourself the trouble. The updater widget updates freaking everything, myspace, FB, twitter (I'm not a tweeter, but I know many people are). This is the best phone with the best OS I've ever owned, I won't be buying any non moto-blur phones anytime soon.

You should be informed, if not do your homework, before you get one, if you absolutely cannot survive without BT transfer.
My Milestone running on Android 2.0.1 offers BT file transfer, but I only use BT for handsfree so far.
For file transfer, I don't see why using USB cable is really that big a deal.
Of course if you don't want your Dext/Cliq, let me know as I would like to get one. (but not available where I live)

Does anyone else have a problem with the battery life of this phone? I have it under battery saver mode and unchecked the auto-synch option already, but the phone can barely last me one day of usage with no phone calls and less then 50 messages. Is there a remedy for the this situation? Please help :(
