Motorola’s Milestone XT720, previously seen under the Motorola Motoroi moniker back at February’s Mobile World Congress, is now officially headed to the UK.
The 10.9mm thick Android phone is pretty much a souped-up Milestone/Droid, that ditches the slide out QWERTY keyboard in favour of specs superior to that of its predecessor.
The touchscreen-only smartphone runs Android 2.1 (no Froyo here sadly, nor Motoblur skinning), features a 3.7 inch screen, an 8MP camera with xenon flash that can record 720p video and be outputted to a flatscreen TV over HDMI.
It incorporates Motorola’s Crystal Talk technology for clear sound quality in calls, has a 3.5mm headphone socket, built in Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and expandable storage up to 32GB with microSD cards.
Due out at the end of the month, the XT720 has yet to attach itself to a network officially, though it has been spotted with T-Mobile branding on some handsets. More on this promising phone as we get it.
