Cellular South has just announced that it will be adding the Motorola Milestone Plus to its lineup of smartphones, not to be confused with the original Milestone
or Milestone 3
. The device will most likely appeal to the Ex-Blackberry user looking for an Android based business oriented device to accomplish their day to day tasks while at the same time touting a more personal and customizable handset for mainstream use.
“The Milestone Plus has the ideal combination of productivity tools and security features that businesses require plus the flexibility and customization options that consumers look for when purchasing mobile devices for their personal use,” said Sherry Stegall, senior vice president for sales and customer operations at Cellular South. “We’re very excited to add this device to our growing suite of Android smart phones and tablets as we continue to build on our promise to deliver the wireless industry’s best Android experience.”
The Milestone Plus is nearly identical to its close brothers, the Motorola XPRT
, Droid Pro and Titanium
. The handset offers a 1 GHz processor, full front facing qwerty keyboard, a 3.1-inch display, 5 MP camera, 4GB of memory on board and touts “DVD quality Video”. And of course, it boasts an extremely useful feature no business man or woman can be without, it’s a world phone! Unfortunately, the device will initially launch with Froyo 2.2 but if you’re a business user it shouldn’t make that much of a difference to you primarily since your focus is on business oriented aspects. All the necessary security one needs is provided on the device as you use it for work or
play. Hit the break for the full press release which reveals a slew of more features like remote wipe & data encryption, Quickoffice editing tools and remote password management. And don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below. Personally, I’m beginning to develop a sweet spot for these small front facing qwertys.
