I know Moto's support worldwide may not meet expectations in some areas, though where I live Moto already promised 2.0.1 would be available after Jan 29 (which is part of the reasons why I waited for over a month), and it also announced the phone will be upgraded to Android 2.1 around mid-Mar.
Not sure about your voice search problem, as I thought it supports English only. (certainly doesn't do Chinese)
Beware of this phone and manufacturer support. There are many, many serious problems with the Milestone; I should know, I bought two of them! One is the German version for my Son's Christmas present, the other one is UK. Both sets share the useless camera bug, mounting via USB bug, crippled Market, but most of all the German model is missing Voice Search. This is very disturbing since even the picture on the box advertises it. The forums are full of extremely angry people and there is even a petition now calling for a class action law suit. I don't mean to vent and throw mud here, just a strong warning against buying an expensive phone only to be disappointed and possible mislead.
I'm getting ready to get my Milestone, coz where I live Moto is offering a special, with purchase between Feb 3-25, owner can bring the receipt and get the docking - free of charge! (value at about US$37)
I'll join a US$17 plan (18 months contract), US$128 prepaid, and handset price gets down to US$305. (vs. US$600 for the handset only price)

100 Moto, 01 Feb 2010You just pick whatever you like and never mention the good stuff that you don't like...
How... moreNo,i hvnt used d actual unit of it..
i jus stated its GooD & BaD points, i nvr said tht its nt a good phn.
Some Bad points lyk no radio n no sec. cam no DiVX/Avi support
it shud b fulfild in DROiD 2.
i dnt knw abt its CRYSTAL TALK feature.
Yes,d QWERTY is V.Good.
Bt y thr is so poor in-built memry?
Y not 8/16/32 GB?
Y oly 8GB crd provided.
Dis phn lacks in memry.
N900 provides in-built 32GB n cn b xpand by 16GB SDcard.
I knw if moto adds ol dis thn thy wil chrge lil high amt.
Bt d BAD points wich i statd is some of d imp thngs on wich MOTO shud work..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If they put all the stuff u want and charge a little plus .. then u start cribbing.. u get wat u pay for..
Motorola's is been always underestimated and i am happy this year their financial report looks better....

How about Crystal Talk? This feature offers the BEST voice quality unmatch by any other maker.
Qwerty keypad - who else can make one at 13.7mm?
3.5mm jack and "charge by micro-USB" - the former is still a stranger among most SE phones, while the latter remains a dream for "new top phones" from the almighty brand like X6.
I do miss radio and front cam. Though how many "smartphones" really offer such features nowadays? Especially Android.
The speed of the processor, if I don't tell u what's inside, can u really tell the difference? Have you ever used the actual unit?
1.The BEST 3G Connectivity support..
wich r d maximum avlbl in 3G.
2. A 3.7" Capacitive Touch Screen wid Multiple Touch input.
3.Adobe Flash Player v10.1
1.Poor intrnl memry n provided wid oly 8GB SD crd.
2.WLAN-UPnP or DLNA?
3.No infrared,5mp cam,it cud hv bin 8mp.
No secndry cam fr video callin.
4.CPU-ARM Cortex A8 600Mhz,it cud hv bin bettr i.e. 800Mhz or 1Ghz.
No PowerVR SGX graphics.
5.No Radio :(
6.No DiVX/Avi support.
So dis phn has
3 GooD Points &
6 BaD Points.
Dis phn is NOT BaD atol.
Bt NOT V.GooD also.
Its a GooD phn.
Motorola shud work on thr limtatn,shud imprv n launch DROiD 2 wid ol d featurs wich DROiD 1 LACKs..
newys GOOD JOB MOTO fr creatin a wndrful 1st 3G Device wid d Highest HSDPA n HSUPA.

milestone has best internet browsing through unique display
