If you’re in the UK, and you’ve been watching as folks in the United States have all the fun with their brand new Motorola Droid 2 device, it looks like you’re time of waiting has finally drawn to a close. It hasn’t been all that long since the device launched in Germany, either, so it looks like the Milestone 2 is ready to take over Europe.
The Milestone 2 is the same device you’ll find in the United States and Germany. It features Android 2.2 under the hood, and there’s a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display. You’ve got integrated WiFi, Bluetooth connectivity, and GPS for all your travelling needs. And, if you need a physical QWERTY keyboard, the device features a landscape sliding form factor to provide one for you. On the back, you get a 5MP camera, able to record HD video.
As far as pricing goes, online retailer Expansys is selling the device on contract with Vodafone, in which you won’t have to pay for the handset, as long as you sign over for a few years, and pay a monthly bill of £30 per month or higher. It’s a two-year commitment, as well. Or, if you want to go the unlocked route, Expansys is also selling the device for £379.99, or about $605.
