Motorola Milestone 2 Contracts Drop To £24.17 Per Month

Days after the new Motorola Milestone 2 has been released, the phone is now available from T-Mobile for as little as £24.17 on an 18-months contract with 300 minutes, 300 texts and 1GB data.

The deal, which is available from BuyMobilePhones, has a total cost of ownership of only £435 and is one of many available from all the major mobile operators except 3 UK.

Given that the cheapest Motorola Milestone 2 handset can be had from £357, this means that the 18 months contract will cost a mere £78.

The original Milestone is available on the same contract for £21.11 per month and might be a better buy if you are not swayed by the new features of the Milestone 2.

These include a faster and better processor, Android OS 2.2, the lack of directional keypad, the ability to record in HD and 512MB RAM, twice that of the Milestone.

The Motorola Milestone 2 will compete with the HTC Desire Z and other LG/Samsung/Sony Ericsson Android handsets with QWERTY keyboards.
