Motorola Milestone XT720 unboxing & demo video

XT720-main If we were to travel back in time to about a year ago I wonder if many of us would have predicted that Motorola would be back in the phone market in such a big way as they are now? I think it’s fair that adopting the Android platform has been the saviour of Motorola winning great popularity here in the UK with the Motorola Milestone and the Droid X in the USA.

The latest incarnation of the Milestone, the XT720 sees Motorola continuing to innovate and stands at the moment as the only smartphone to be capable of outputting video in HD over an HDMI cable, allowing you to watch back the 720p HD footage you recorded on the 8 megapixel camera.

Sporting a 3.7″ capacitive touchscreen at 480 x 854 pixels, WiFi, GPS, RDS radio stuffed in to a thin and light package and all running under Android 2.1, the Milestone XT720 seems to offer great value for the £351 asking price.

Check out the unboxing and demo video below and be sure to come back for the full review soon!
