Moto Droid is $200 in the US with contact from Verizon. Nokia's N97 costs $600+ unlocked. The N900 will probably cost even more.
If this phone and the OS can work well, this phone will be very, very popular in the US.
Got my Droid and absolutely love it. No doubt the fastest phone. Even with high expectation, I am still pleasantly surprise by how fast it load the page.
x10 is just 65k color
in 2009 ?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
milestone = x2 + x10 + capacitive 16million color
n900 and milestone are realy best smartphone at world
Oh, Android 2.0
the Droid delivers on much of the hype. The display is gorgeous, the Android 2.0 updates are excellent, and the handset is lightning fast, particularly for an Android phone. We'll refrain from using the dreaded "iPhone killer" expression, but comparisons between the two devices are obvious, and we see the Droid as a real competitor to Apple's device. On the downside, we weren't crazy about the keyboard and dialpad accessibility
The capacitive display's touch interface is quick and responsive and we love the added multitouch capability. As with previous Android phones, there's vibrating feedback only for certain functions (like a "long press"), though you can turn off the haptic feedback completely if you desire. When we selected items and scrolled through long lists, there was no lag time in performing the command (more on that later, as well). You also can customize the display's brightness, backlighting time, and animations. The accelerometer will adjust the display's orientation as you rotate the Droid in your hands, but you can turn this feature off.
Outside of the upgrades from Android 2.0 and the Droid-specific tweaks, the basic interface will be familiar to Android users. You get only three home screens--we prefer the five we got on the Motorola Cliq--but you can customize each pane with widgets. And, of course, the central pane has the Google search bar. The main menu is accessible via the pull tab at the bottom of the display. The menu's design is mostly unchanged. You can move icons around and add shortcuts and folders
Itís amazing how a simple double-tap gesture will dramatically change the usability of a touch-screen-based browser. Literally, itís one thing (besides CPU speed, a great screen obviously, etc.) that makes a big difference. Again, thereís no multi-touch and to be honest, a simple pinch-zoom gesture is really missed. With that said, the browser has improved a lot as far as rendering, being HTML5 compliant, sometimes fast, and very, very stable. Visually, as Android 2.0 in general seems to do, thereís some spice added. Visual bookmarks are fun, the improved URL bar at the top complete with favicon is also a nice touch. In addition to being HTML5 compliant, thereís also support for offline caching for browser-based apps among other improvements. The widescreen resolution and pixel density of the screen really make the browser very friendly to use
When you look at speed, the browser is pretty good. Running over the same Wi-Fi network, the DROID performed pretty reasonably compared to our iPhone 3GS. The 3GS weíd say has about 20% on the DROID for straight page loading and rendering, though scrolling speeds are noticeably faster on the DROID. Well, loading is pretty fast.
Phone calling / speaker :
The speakerphone isnít the loudest speakerphone, but itís delightfully crisp and projects sound very well. When bumpiní some music, we didnít notice a single distortion, crack ó nothing, even at full volume. Speakerphone voice calls also exhibited from the same pleasurable and accurate audio reproduction. We love making calls on the DROID
Google Navigation :
Uh oh, Google just ate everyoneís lunch right? Well, kind of. Google Navigation is amazing at the conceptual level, and even as far as usability goes itís great. Itís fast, clean, and hey, itís in beta so donít flip out. We love satellite view for navigating and we love that itís truly an internet-connected navigation app that never needs updated. It caches your route so itís not totally network-dependent, but there isnít any offline maps or anything like that, so some might take issue with that
a 550MHz OMAP3 CPU, dedicated graphics processor, 512MB of ROM, 256 of RAM,
if you want the great qwerty smartphone milestone is unrivaled
but if the price is important for u get moto dext
I waited more than year & half to find QWERTY Moto beside the Q-series (its not available in Saudi Arabia)
or Sony Ericsson (the X1 was tooooo expansive) so i had to get Nokia E75 (I'm not fan of Nokia) 2 month ago & now this :
Sony Ericsson X2
Positioning Milestone commonplace - the best Android-smartphone with QWERTY-keyboard
Why the best?
Based on the hardware of filling the screen, that this is the first device with Android 2.0 (Eclaire), the best on camera and so on. Unlike DEXT, who will have to compete with the mass of different devices on Android, then do not even have to add a shell or further develop standard software, all of the boxes is similar to other phones. The difference is in hardware performance, little things which create an aura around the product . Plus a few friends on the old products from Motorola chips that make the device enjoyable
Metal case, even the battery compartment lid made of metal. But everywhere covering soft-touch, it is velvety, pleasant phone to hold in their hands. Want to feel the metal?
Above the screen is a frontal camera, immediately - an indicator of events: receive SMS - it starts to blink, exactly the same for missed events. Very handy when the screen is not lighted at the same SMS, and starts blinking light, good it is noticeable
Disclosure of the device automatically changes the screen orientation (at the turn in the closed position exactly the same thing).The keyboard has a small move, but the buttons are large and pleasant. In comparison with keypad Nokia N97 model from Motorola wins by a large margin, it is more convenient. Right put five-way navigation key, it is pleasant.
keyboard is very pleasant and Milestone is only positive feedback
WOW ! amazing MOTO !
so...no need my CAR GPS anymore...cause i am going to buy one ! than i'll have my "pocket" GPS
The phone uses TI OMAP 3430 chipset, processor ARM Cortex A8 with a frequency of 550 MHz. . Due to this model is very mischievous, this is one of the fastest Android-smartphone, as can be seen at work with him. Manufacturer claims that is also used graphics accelerator.
It's amazing, but in the version of the device for the U.S. market using the latest version of Google Maps with the first appearance of free navigation turn-by-turn (beta version). В In the European version of the memory card will be delivered application MotoNAV exactly for the same purpose.
On phones with the Android OS was not flash to version 2.0, when it came to support the system level. Accordingly, 5-megapixel camera at Milestone acquired a flash, it has autofocus, but image quality with a fairly average. By downsides include the fact that induced the camera focus on a couple of seconds, and after pressing the shutter clicks or finger across the screen to the frame and goes to the second. To capture moving objects the camera is adapted enough. But otherwise it is quite interesting. Video recording comes with a maximum resolution of 720x480 pixels.
The phone uses capacitive touch screen with a diagonal of 3.7 inches, is a monster among the phones, screen resolution - 480h854 point. The screen is covered with a glass plate, it can work with your fingers, pressing the stylus, it does not handle, even though such messages from somewhere there. The quality of the screen without a doubt - a bright, clear, very good showing both pictures and text. . Convenient screen, which equals the market today are not (based on the WVGA-resolution and diagonal). Milestone can compare the display with that in the Samsung i8910 HD,
