Motorola Droid comes to the UK as Milestone – sells out in record time

Motorola Droid coming to the UK as MilestoneIt’s been a hefty hit in the US, where it was released as the Droid and promoted by some hilariously macho adverts, and Motorola are now letting Europeans get in on the action.

Renamed ‘Milestone,’ the phone is headed to the UK and offers a tempting feature set, with a 3.7-inch 854 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, dualband (900/2100) HSDPA/HSUPA and a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and a dual LED flash.

Early adopters can bag themselves a Milestone at Expansys for £499.99 or commit to an 18 month, £35/month contract on T-Mobile and get the handset for £49.99.

Update:  initial stocks sold out with Expansys making a statement:

Today (Thursday 10th December) the first shipment of the Motorola Milestone was delivered into the UK, to be sold exclusively by eXpansys.com. Within 3 hours of the product being listed as ‘in stock’ on the eXpansys site it sold out. This makes the Motorola Milestone the fastest selling gadget in the website’s 11 year history, even more successful than the iPhone [Via]
