New Motorola Android Milestone handset arrives in the UK

Motorola's Milestone XT720 Google OS based handset is now on sale, SIM free and unlocked from a range of on-line resellers. This sequel to their keyboard based Android mobile phone, with HD recording and an HDMI socket has arrived without an exclusive network deal and all below £400.

Retailers from the likes of Expansys, and Clove have all begun selling the new Moto handset from today which boast a 3.7-inch touch screen, an 8 megapixel camera capable of 720p recording and arrives with a miniHDMI socket, a 550Mhz processor and runs Android 2.1.

The Motorola XT720 initially appears to be their Milestone handset from late last year, only without a physical Qwerty keyboard and solely relying on the touch screen with some notable improvements along the way.

Based on the Moto Roi launched in South Korea early this year, it's the first handset to arrive on our shores with this high definition socket built-in where the accompanying miniHDMI to HDMI cable is used to play all types of HD video content straight to a compatible screen.

Those resellers mentioned above have started selling the handset from around £360 to £380, although the much beefier 1Ghz processor, 4.3-inch screen Motorola Droid X is due later on this year where the Droid was the Milestone's brand name in the States.
