Josh, 20 Dec 2009How is this a gsm phone? I understand Verizon sells it, which uses CDMA, so I'm confused.Droid = CDMA, Milestone = GSM, get it?
Which is bettet samsung omnia 2, lg arena or moto droid aka milestone
This is a great phone.
Two only problem: autofocus not perfect, autonomy not too long.
The monitor is perfect, the reactivity is perfect, the general velocity is awesome.
Do a search for the Motorola Calgary, it's a 'baby' droid with a keyboard design similar to the old Razor (metal plate with rubber ribs between the keys).
Droid Multitouch Enhanced by Add-on
The Motorola Droid might be partially responsible for a huge jump in consumer awareness and popularity of the Android operating system, but there is still one thing the Droid does -- but doesn't do very well: support multitouch.
Sure, you can download Dolphin Browser and start pinching the screen to zoom in like you can on an iPhone, but a better solution appears just around the corner.
A mutlitouch ROM based on the European Milestone (which supports multitouch) is available on a post on AllDroid.org.
The alpha release might brick your phone and doesn't support GPS, but if you follow the instructions listed on the forum you will be able to enjoy multitouch goodness in Droid native applications. Check out the demo, below.

Anonymous, 20 Dec 2009Who told you that Droid has a better keyboard, everyone has the opinion that the droid keyboar... moremilestone is open source type. N900 can multitask like milestone ,lol
.milestone display is way way beter, Camera is better, battery is better, Web browser experiance is the best. And lastly because it is raw linux and open source we can see any type of aplication possible in milestone. IT is in real a true mobile computer. and just in 13.7 mm thick
Anonymous, 20 Dec 2009this phone doesnt have multi touch so remove it from specs Droid (CDMA) doest have multi touch, but Milestone (GSM) has multi touch.

vuler, 19 Dec 2009ok you get n900 for TV out ! lol and i get milestone for 16m capacitive screen , multito... moreWho told you that Droid has a better keyboard, everyone has the opinion that the droid keyboard sucks, see all the reviews and infact everyone says that N900 is much better. Read reviews they say that the resistive touchscreen of 900 is very responsive and just like capacitive, Maemo will be the best because it is very open source and is raw Linux which has a larger developer base than even symbian, it just matter of time that the Apps start flowing. When Nokia is going to make maemo its number 1 OS it will put in great effort to roll put great apps too. The oppurtunity is huge unlike Anroid which is made in linux but is not very open source type. N900 can multitask like no other phone, havent you yet seen even if there are 30 apps open it doesnt affect the 900. Camera is better, battery is better, Web browser experiance is the best. And lastly because it is raw linux and open source we can see any type of aplication possible in 900. IT is in real a true mobile computer.
I can say phone is quite good, highly above my expectation.
HD2 was good (really) but it had one major flaw: win mo
anyone saying HD2 is faster cuz of processor/RAM is an idiot. Any person who used Win Mo of any version will know this to be a complete bull. (sad case really).
But overall HD2 is nice device and I like it.
Being moto (well they haven't really done much have they?) I thought it might be sub standard but they pulled it well. Thin (but not light. I like this. Not at all plastic-like) keyboard is somewhat disappointing (soft touch? really? :/ )but nice screen size, good OS, fast, etc.
My only question- was that nav button on qwerty really neccesary?
unlike other rival from other brand milestone have fast 3g HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps
well done moto
