The Motorola Milestone brings smart phone technology to the table

Category Technology

The Motorola Milestone is an impressively stylish mobile phone with an impressive list of functionality which incorporates everything anyone could want from a mobile phone. Recently released, this handset has an unerring familiarity with PDA styling, as it provides landscape mode data entry through its unusually accessible full QWERTY keyboard.

The phones impressively large 3.7 inch TFT touch screen is suitably large enough to be able to display pages of websites with excellent detailing. The fact that the display screen is able to display up to 16 million colours within the confines of a 480 x 854 pixel screen size may have something to do with it. Utilising the multi-touch input method of accessing functionality is simplicity itself, and makes web surfing user-friendly. Proximity and accelerometer sensors are included as standard within the Motorola Milestone , as is a full QWERTY keyboard which comes with a five way navigation key and is located behind the screen.

Class 12 versions of GPRS and EDGE are complimented by blue tooth and micro-USB connections, whilst internet access is provided by the HSPDA and Wi Fi connections. Speeds of up to 10.2 Mbps are achievable, which compare favourably with landline connections, whilst Wi Fi hotspots, located around the country can be accessed due to the Wi Fi feature. The phone’s internal memory of 133 MB is supplemented by an 8 GB SD card. Whilst for further memory expansion, up to 32 GB, the integrated microSD card slot can be utilised.

The handsets camera is a 5.0 megapixel camera which comes with autofocus and geo-tagging. Operating at 2592 pixels by 1944, images are impressive when taken. For illumination purposes a dual LED flash is provided. The camera also provides the means to record D1 quality video, which is essentially 720 x 480 pixels and at 24 frames per second. An MP4/MP3 player is included with the package as is also a document viewer, a photo viewer/editor, satellite navigation, organiser and voice memo.

The Moto Milestone utilises the ARM Cortex A8 600 MHz processor as well as the Android version 2 operating system, otherwise known as Eclair. This multipurpose, multifunctional handset offers impressively stylish design as well as functionality that is eminently useful.
