Motorola Cancels Droid 3 Milestone Launch For UK

Motorola mobile fans will be disappointed to learn that the company has canned plans to release the Droid 3, also known as the Milestone 3, in the UK.

Reports unearthed by thinq_ suggest that the highly-anticipated handset will never make it to British shores because response has been a little underwhelming in the USA.

The Motorola Droid 3 builds on the company's previous Droid/Milestone handsets, keeping the slide-out physical keyboard but upgrading the internals to feature a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 processor and 512MB of RAM. A four-inch qHD PenTile-powered multi-touch display sits at the front, while the rear includes an eight-megapixel camera.

Sales of the phone, which has already been outclassed by Samsung's Galaxy S II, have been poor enough to prevent a wider release according to anonymous sources who spoke to Know Your Mobile.
