Anonymous, 04 Dec 2009lol, The voting result is lower than the Dext/Cliqthats probably bcos of SE fans giving this 1s in every category. but they probably dont bother or hvnt heard of the dext/cliq
The specs are wow. You get the best of keyboard and touch screen. When will it be available in india or hong kong?
ari, 05 Dec 2009Does it have document editor/ viewer?yes milestone have document editor and viewer with more ability and file reader than windows mobile phones
The Motorola Droid is fast (or not slow) to the point where responsiveness mostly doesn't become a distraction, which is a common problem on Android phones in my opinion. Clearly, the droid is the fastest Android phone that I've tried. It is much better and reactive than the Cliq or than the HTC Hero. Out of the box, we're entering in iPhone 3GS' reactivity territory, but like other Android phones, it is not immune to slow downs once apps are running in the background (it's normal). After setting up and having Exchange, Google Latitude and Skype running in the background, I could already feel that the user interface had slow down.
Placing a call is very easy. You can dial a number on the (virtual) numeric pad, slide the keyboard and type the first few letters of a contact, or select one of your favorites. I tend to use the favorites or the call log. At the moment, you have to slide the keyboard out to type a contact name, so that's a two-hand operation (well, you can technically do it with one hand, but not comfortably). The call volume is louder than most smartphones that I've tested recently, which is good. However, the sound has more "bass" than usual and that makes the voices slightly more muffled. Overall, all the basic functions are covered very well
The sliding mechanism requires more force than usual to open, but it feels solid and has a nice "click" when it locks. The keyboard has very flat keys, but they are also much bigger than the keys on the N900 (or the HTC Touch Pro) and size does matter: with the larger keys, you can type using the meat of the thumb instead of using the tip of the thumbnail - that's more comfortable. In terms of typing speed, I would say that Blackberry (8900 or 9700) is by far the king of the hill, followed by the Motorola Cliq. But the Droid's keyboard is still much better than a virtual keyboard, and I'm glad that the phone is so thin, even if it is 25% heavier than the iPhone.
it has a CPU (central processor) and GPU (graphics processor) that is equivalent to Nokia's best: the Nokia N900, even the beautiful WVGA (854x480) display equals the N900's and leaves the iPhone 3GS display behind: it is twice as sharp.
Droid has a graphics processor that is similar to the one found in the Nokia N900. I've recorded a video with a racing game (a "WipeOut" clone) to show you, but basically, OpenGL 1.x graphics can run at 30fps or more, so the machine has a level of performance that would allow iPhone 3G (and slightly above) type of games. I know that OpenGL is going to get better as Google has been hiring top software engineers to work on this.
YouTube playback: YouTube video playback is very good. I've tried playing high-quality files over Verizon's 3G network and the playback is very good: The included photos and videos speak for themselves. Basically, you can browse Youtube's mobile site and when you find a video that you like, click on it and it will launch the Android YouTube application that will play the file in full screen (landscape mode). As usual, there's no support for Hulu
Mapping: I tend to see smartphone mapping apps as pedestrian-oriented, and as such the new mapping/navigation application is excellent. It features Google's new turn-by-turn (with voice prompts) navigation software, which is good and free. The map scrolling is very smooth and the download of new map tiles is relatively fast, thanks to Verizon's 3G network.The reactivity of the map makes the application very usable (on foot) and it is possible to zoom in with a double-tap (to zoom out, use the zoom button). I usually don't like driving with one of those because there is a significant lag. It might or might not bug you, but I find that to be disturbing.
With my usage pattern, the Motorola Droid seems to do better than many phones. With a normal use (see context) the battery dies 22hrs to 24hrs down the line, which is better than the iPhone 3GS, the Motorola Cliq and largely better than the Nokia N900.
The iPhone has triumphed over all previous 'iPhone killers.' Does the Droid(milestone) finally knock the iPhone off its pedestal?
i think we must say bye bye to iphone and say hello droid aka milestone
The device is quite awesome
display having “more than 400,000 pixels total, DROID has more than twice that of the leading competitor” iPhone
Power and intelligence can be more than a phone
it is sweet. Moto claims that this is the thinnest full QWERTY slider on the market
Motorola delivers a richer Web experience and smarter messaging on the thinnest QWERTY slider available. The Android phone is available exclusively
Motorola's Droid is the best Google phone on the market.
DROID is unveiled as a highly finished product, ... The Motorola DROID multitasks very well, with its ability to run
is the first device built on Android 2.0, the latest version of Google's open-source mobile operating system
high-end Android phone with a superb high-resolution screen, a slim shape, a physical QWERTY keyboard and Google's latest build of Android (the operating system). The inside of the phone is interesting as well: it has a decent CPU and uses a relatively fast 3D graphics chip.
The keys are very flat, but they are bigger than in most slider phone
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970actually gsmarena said the 65k color limit is noticeable. see their review of htc hd2. and multitouch for pictures and web is useful. even windows mobile has multitouch on htc hd2. so htc hv achieved much more than SE with their ui. dont forget sense ui on htc hero had multitouch and flash for web before se hv even managed to release an android phone. so dont think se is the only company that makes a good ui. also dont compare a phone that has already been released to a phone se will eventually make. all se usually do is anounce a good phone that they cant make (cos if they cud they wud hv released it) and then release it when the competition has caught up or surpassed it.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I saw someone posted in Utube Video of Mliestone from Victory Park in HK. So Assume that HK must sale this phone. Some Asia country by end of january 2010
good day guys!! when shall it be released to asia??pls advise..im waiting for this phone..
No sooner do we get brief corner glimpses of the supposed Motorola Sholes tablet do we get tipped off to this writeup from Androidin.net which has a number of pictures of an eerily similar keyboard-less handset with a 3.7-inch screen, Android 2.1, FM radio, and interestingly enough, only a 5 megapixel camera -- last we heard it was going to be 8. Also debatable is a HDMI port, since the image that would show it is a tad too blurry. Otherwise, it seems to be about in line with what we expected, and it also seems destined for China Unicom as the XT701 (analogous to China Mobile's Motorola Android device). Now how about a few dashes of hope we'll see this stateside, eh Moto? Two more shots after the break.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970lol then go bash in nokia forums too because N97 has a 434mhz "slow" cpu, and is heavier, also N900 is heavy and both have 5MPX camera, their screen is 3.5", like iphone and Satio, so they are too small for you...oh but maybe you only like big ones ;).
Also go bash iphone, X because its a 3.2Mpx :)
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970hahahaaaaaaaa yo talk about x10 with 65k color on 2010 - no multi touch - 1gb internal ...

The voting result is lower than the Dext/CliqMotorola MILESTONE
Now Available in France
Via online retailer Rue du

Adjust text size:
unveiled to the
powered by Google's Android
operating system, the Motorola
DROID, which has been launched
across Europe as the Motorola
MILESTONE. The new device is
the first one to sport the Eclair
flavor of the platform (Android
2.0), and has been recently
launched on the market in
France, after hitting the shelves
in Germany and UK not too long
The Android 2.0-powered mobile
phone is available for purchase
from the online retailer Rue du
Commerce, which has it available
unlocked and SIM-free for a price
tag of 520 Euros (a holiday price,
we learn, as the full price is of
549 Euros). At the same time, the
retailer also has the MILESTONE
available for purchase with
various contract offerings from
carriers in the country, lowering
the price for the phone even
The phone seems to be the best
thing that has happened to
Android until now, and also the
best selling handset from
Motorola. The DROID has been
estimated to have been sold in
over 700,000 units until now,
which means that the handset
vendor will be able to meet its 1
million units sold goal for the
fourth quarter of the year. Now
that the MILESTONE has reached
yet another European market, the
sales will certainly grow even
As for what the device is able
to deliver to users, you might be
already familiar with its 3.7-inch
touchscreen display that boasts
a WVGA resolution, as well as
with its 5-megapixel photo
snapper with dual LED flash, the
side sliding full QWERTY
keyboard (which goes to France
as AZERTY), Wi-Fi connectivity
options, aGPS, USB 2.0 and
Bluetooth v2.1 capabilities,
3.5mm headphone jack, the email
and messaging options it comes
to the market with, not to
mention HTML browser and
multimedia features it sports.
