The Motorola Milestone is the most advanced mobile phone to be released by Motorola to date, the Milestone is the second Android powered phone from the manufacturer and incorporates the Android 2.0 operating system although this can now be upgraded to the latest edition, v2.1.

The Motorola Milestone is still the slimmest mobile phone on the market to incorporate a full, slide out Qwerty keyboard, for many this is a must have as text input for composing emails, text messages and updating social network sites is quick and easy using the physical keys, although there is still an on-screen Qwerty keyboard for those that prefer this method.

As an Android phone, the Milestone grants access to the ever expanding Android Market where the user can download over 22,000 new applications from news, weather and information to games, music and satellite navigation programs.

On the reverse of the phone is a 5.0 mega pixel camera alongside a dual LED flash, the main touch screen measures a good 3.2 inches and features multi-touch and pinch to zoom functions, there is also a 3.5mm audio jack plug allowing the user to listen to music and video with their pair of standard headphones.

The variety of Android powered mobile phones has expanded greatly since the original launch of the Motorola Milestone back in January of this year, new models include the Samsung Galaxy Portal, LG GW620 InTouch Max, HTC Desire and HTC Legend as well as the first Sony Ericsson phone to feature the operating system called the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.

A number of phones featuring the same specification 5.0 mega pixel camera and 3.2 inch touch screen have also been released as competition, these include the HTC HD Mini, Nokia X6 and LG Pop models although there is still no direct competitor to the Milestone with its physical Qwerty keyboard.

This will come in the form of the new Sony Ericsson Vivaz (although not android) and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro which offers the same sized 3.2 inch touch screen, 5.0 mega pixel camera and the latest version of the Android software alongside a slide out Qwerty keyboard.

Originally launched on Orange back in early January, the Milestone has gone on to be released as a SIM Free phone as well as on T-Mobile, Vodafone and O2 before this latest launch as a Pay As You Go phone. This only leave sa couple of network operators still to pick up this popular Motorola handset, those being both Virgin Mobile and the dedicated 3G network; 3 Mobile.
