Initially announced for South Korea, Motorola's XT720 has been announced for Europe under the Milestone brand—which follows the rebadged Droid which launched last year. It's got an 8MP camera, and is the first Android with a Xenon flash.
iSuppli has already revealed that the Nexus One parts cost $174.15 and the iPhone 3GS $178.96 (including manufacturing), but the Droid? Thanks to a recent teardown, we now know Motorola's more generous, with parts totaling $179.11.
The U.S. Droid doesn't feature multitouch, but the European version does. The Milestone's magical multitouch ROM is up for grabs now. If you're willing to risk a bricked phone, head here for the download and instructions. [Redmond Pie, Thanks Taimur]
American commercials for Motorola's Droid might be bold, but they're also kind of scary and threatening. In Europe, the renamed Milestone is much calmer, gentler and friendlier than the DROID SMASH we're privy to.
Talk about unfair: this video appears to show that the GSM version of the Motorola Droid will support multi-touch gestures like pinch-zoom. The U.S version doesn't do multi-touch, even though Android 2.0 supports it, so what gives?
