Cheapest Motorola Milestone 2 To Cost £357 SIM Free

As announced last week, the unlocked Motorola Milestone 2 is now officially available in the UK with online retailer Expansys saying that it has more than 100 handsets in stock.

The phone costs £380 and comes with free delivery as well as a free universal car pack worth £52.64 but you can get it from Handtec from £357 without the freebies; other vendors with stocks include Clove Technology and Simply Electronics.

The phone will be available from Vodafone apparently with Expansys offering it from £30 per month with free phone, 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB internet on a two year contract.

The new Motorola is twice as fast as the old one, clocked at 1GHz, it comes with 512MB RAM, 8GB internal memory expandable to 40GB via an additional 32GB memory card.

Other features include the 3.7-inch 854x480 pixel capacitive touchscreen, the ability to record in HD, a 5-megapixel camera with AF and dual LED flash, Android OS 2.2 and DLNA plus Adobe Flash compatibility.

Whether the Motorola Milestone 2 actually better than the HTC Desire Z - which is also available from Vodafone for the same price - remains to be seen.
