Motorola Milestone XT 720 Unveiled

Posted by on Jun 10, 2010 | Leave a Comment

Motorola Milestone XT 720 has been unveiled with a number of high end specifications and a much slimmer design.

Android 2.1 and an ARM Cortex A8 processor have been used. This is similar to the Motorola Milestone excluding it has no keyboard, a 10.9mm slim frame and an HDMI-out port to pump HD content to a larger TV. To stand near its rival, Milestone has grown up with slide-out keyboard to join the likes of the iPhone, Nexus One and Sony Xperia X10. It has a 550MHz Arm Cortex A8 processor, 8 megapixel camera, 8GB Micro SD (upgradable to 32GB), 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen display and 720p video recording at 24 frames per second.

Its 8-megapixel packing Android monster promises to ‘eliminate the barriers to consumers for creating and consuming media on the go’. In camera’s specifications, it has an 8MP camera with a Xenon flash and 720p video recording, and a large 3.7-inch WVGA screen to view media on.

It has an 8GB microSD card in the box, but you can also upgrade that up to 32GB if you are so inclined to fill your Motorola Milestone XT720 to the gills with media. There is no MotoBlur overlay, which Motorola says is because the device is “aimed at the power user, we made a decision to put MotoBlur on some very successful devices with MotoBlur 1.5, so we’re targeting certain users [with the overlay].”

You will get the usual range of Android upgrades, exchange support and integrated social networking as well as WebKit supported browsing. You can buy from these two sources, Expansys and, with pre-order beginning on 11 June.

Motorola says this is because it ‘allows it to get to the market faster’ as the rapid development of Android devices (11 so far) means it’s hard to synchronise with the network’s 18-month release cycles – although we’d rather see this on the high street rather than being hidden on the net.

Motorola launched a product that will be perfect for lovers of photography and smartphones. The device also records video with sound quality: 720p / 24fps and has a screen of 3.7 inches. The battery lasts an average of 9 hours of talk time and 320 standby. Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS are also part of the specifications of the device.
