Motorola Canada have today announced the launch of their first Android powered handset, the Motorola Milestone.
The Motorola Milestone (aka the Motorola DROID), will be available from early 2010 exclusively to TELUS customers.
TELUS’ new 3G+ network gives Canadians access to a world-class selection of mobile devices such as the Motorola Milestone,” said David Neale, senior vice-president of Product and Services at TELUS. “It is TELUS commitment to offer Canadians the most comprehensive and advanced smartphone line-up available so that we can meet their needs to stay connected, informed and entertained wherever they go. That’s why the Motorola Milestone will fit perfectly in our TELUS smartphone selection.
Powered by Android 2.0, the Motorola Milestone features a 3.7-inch touch-sensitive display (854 x 480 pixel resolution), a 5.0 megapixel camera with auto focus and video recording capabilities, GPS navigation, media player with support for AMR-NB/WB, MP3, PCM / WAV, AAC, AAC +, eAAC +, WMA audio files and MPEG-4, H.263, H.264, WMV video files, and a microSD / microSDHC memory card slot.
The smartphone also includes a USB 2.0 port, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, Wi-Fi connectivity, and 512MB of ROM and 256MB of RAM.
The Motorola Milestone joins a growing collection of Canadian Android handsets. Last week Rogers Wireless announced the launch of the LG Eve priced at $49.99 as part of a 3-year voice and data contract.
Currently there is no pricing information available for the TELUS Motorola Milestone.
