Motorola releases Milestone into Europe

Motorola, readying over 20 smartphones for release next year in addition to its new DEXT handset, has announced that it is releasing the Milestone mobile phone into Europe, complete with a multi-touch interface and based upon the latest version of Android, version 2.0. The new design has already appeared in the American market but under a different moniker - the Droid.


To be initially released into Germany and Italy, with other territories - such as the UK - to follow, the new Milestone handset features multi-touch support including gesture, pinch & zoom and more. This is a 'big deal' for the European version of the phone because, on the US version, this feature is disabled. The European version doesn't include free turn-by-turn navigation, however, principally because the feature has yet to be formally introduced in Europe.


Featuring a 3.7in, WVGA resolution, packing in 480 x 854 pixels and a 16:9 widescreen format, the Milstone also includes a 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and GPS.


No price information has been released yet.
