Motorola Milestone 2 Down To £170

The Motorola Milestone 2 is now available from as little as £170, the cheapest Android hanset with a slide out keyboard on the market, at Expansys.

The retailer is also clearing out the desktop cradle for only £2, a worthy investment and has thrown in a 4GB microSD card. Stocks are extremely limited at the time of writing and strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.

The device comes with a 1GHz TI OMAP3340 processor based on the Cortex-A8, a 3.7-inch 854 by 480 pixels, 512MB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a five megapixel camera with flash, a full slide out QWERTY keyboard, a 1400mAh battery, a microSD cad reader, DLNA compatibility, Bluetooth, microUSB and GPS.

The Motorola Milestone 2 runs on Android 2.2 Froyo although you will be able to upgrade to Gingerbread but no Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (although you will be able to get unofficial (and unsupported) ICS from CyanogenMod.
