Last month we reported that the flagship Motorola Droid smartphone was being replaced in the USA by the Droid 2. Motorola has now confirmed that the European version of the Droid – the Motorola Milestone – is also being updated.
The MILESTONE 2 is due for release in Europe by the end of the year. It runs Android 2.2 with Motorola's MOTOBLUR social network interface and, like its predecessor, has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. There's a 1GHz processor, up to 8GB of expandable memory, a 5 megapixel camera and HD video capture.
Alain Mutricy, senior vice president of portfolio and device product management for Motorola Mobility, said "MILESTONE 2 offers more power, more speed, with an improved keyboard, so users can send, access and share information even quicker than before to manage their work and personal life. This introduction not only reaffirms our commitment to innovate on Android but offers consumers the leading edge features they crave including fast web browsing, messaging, application downloads and multimedia."
