This one is no unexpected news, that’s for sure, but Motorola has just announced the Motorola Milestone 2. There is no official release date for the Motorola Milestone yet, but Motorola Droid 2’s brother is expected to arrive in Europe in Q4 2010.
The Milestone 2 is basically a Motorola Droid 2 that’s not using Verizon’s network (and branding). The only thing that you haven’t seen on the Motorola Droid 2 is the 720p recording capability of its 5MP camera. Not to say that’s a bad thing. You get the same 1Ghz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage (and some extra 8 via the included MicroSD card) and the Android 2.2 OS (with Motoblur).
Just as the Motorola Droid 2 owners did not get their Android 2.2 update until the Verizon Droid 2 was released, Motorola has just announced that the Android 2.2 update for the original Milestone will be also arriving in Q4 (probably just a few days after the Milestone 2 release date).
