Hands on: Motorola Milestone, Motorola DEXT


Okay, so last night I had a chance to play with two wonderful Motorola’s Android handset: Motorola Milestone (aka DROID) and Motorola DEXT (aka Cliq). In general, Milestone is good for business people, while DEXT is a must have device for social networking fans. Both offer touchscreen capability as well as physical keypads. Good thing is that both devices will hit the Asian market soon.

The Milestone, which has multitouch capability and a Qwerty slider, runs on Google’s open-source Android OS 2.0 and packs a large 3.7-inch touchscreen, 5MP camera, microSDHC slot, Wi-Fi and GPS. Unlike iPhone, Milestone also supports Flash-based webpages. It sports a dual-band 3G support for Europe and Asia. And it has smarter messaging, too.

The Motorola DEXT (aka Motorola CLIQ) is a QWERTY side slider and the company’s first foray into Android territory. It runs the personalized MOTOBLUR (a great feature for tracking tweets, status updates and emails and merge them with your Google account to fill up the phone’s address book), and has a 3.1-inch HVGA screen (capacitive touchscreen), 5MP autofocus camera, 3.5mm jack, 3G and Wi-Fi. Its fully customisable homescreen is awesome.
