Motorola Milestone demonstration video

A couple of days ago I got my hands on the new Motorola Milestone (aka Motorola Droid) and you may have seen my Milestone Unboxing video which included a quick tour of the hardware.

Now that I’ve spent a little more time using the Milestone (and I also have my voice back a bit!) I have another video for you. This time I’m looking at the OS and User Interface in more detail and even trying out a couple of the apps. It’s not a mammoth video, about 17 minutes long, but you’ll still want to get comfortable before watching.

So after the first two days what do I think of the Motorola Milestone? I have to say that I am impressed. Definitely the best thing to come out of Motorola in a very long time in my opinion. I was not a fan of the Dext, I thought it was a nice idea poorly executed and the handset had a terrible build quality. However, the Milestone is a very different beast. The build quality is excellent – from the sliding screen which has wobbles as it moves to the well designed and tactile QWERTY keyboard.

So far there are only two things that I dislike about the Milestone. One is that odd step at the bottom of the screen that looks like the screen has been made too small for the device. The other issue I’ve noticed is when launching applications they often start in landscape when you are holding the handset portrait or vice-versa. It’s not a bit deal and the apps do catch up after a second or two but it is kinda annoying! You’ll see that happen in the video too.


Don’t forget that you that can ask us any questions about the Milestone over on the forum and we’ll do our best to answer them for you!
