Motorola Milestone: India’s First Android 2.1 Phone

Motorola India today introduced its first Android 2.1-powered phone christened as MILESTONE. It touts features such as a high-resolution pinch and zoom display, and a thinner QWERTY slider (13.7mm or 1.37cm).

The model comes with a pre-loaded set of apps: a suite of Google mobile applications including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube, etc. Users also get access to thousands of apps and widgets from Android Market. It has a 5 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, and AutoFocus and image stabilisation.

MILESTONE comes preloaded with lifetime free access to fully voice-guided street-level navigable maps of 401 cities in India. This offers voice-guided navigation and routing in the cities and across major national and state highways. All the consumer needs to do is to launch ‘India’ maps from the MOTONAV application to enjoy an unparalleled navigational experience. The GPS navigation service is free with no activation or data charges, independent of mobile networks and can be used even without inserting the SIM card, as the maps are fully loaded on the MILESTONE.

“As an Android 2.1 device, MILESTONE does what other smartphones don’t. It was designed to enhance consumer experiences – and its full screen Web browsing experience, ability to juggle between multiple apps, and suite of Google applications, deliver. We have been delighted with the anticipation and demand for MILESTONE across the world and are pleased to announce its arrival in India today,” said Faisal Siddiqui, country head, mobile devices, Motorola India.

Key MILESTONE features include:

MILESTONE will be available in India at select retails outlets in select cities at an MRP of Rs 32,990.
