About

Released in November 2009, the Motorola Milestone features a hardware keyboard, 3,7" TFT display, 133 MB internal storage, 256MB RAM, and a 600 MHz CPU. It shipped with Android 2.1, upgradable to Android 2.2

The hardware keyboard is one of the features which made the device very desirable, and the favorite smartphone of many a geek -- referring to it with the simple cosy name "the stone" (while its successor, the Motorola Milestone 2, then simply became "the stoneĀ²", not "stoned").

Some basic specifications, according to GSMArena, include:

  • a hardware keyboard
  • 3.7" TFT capacitive touchscreen (480x854px), protected by Corning's GorillaGlass
  • 133 MB internal storage, extensible via microSD up to 32 GB (8 GB included)
  • 256 MB RAM
  • 5 MPx (2592x1944 pixels) camera with autofocus, dual-LED flash
  • 600 MHz Cortex-A8 CPU
  • Android OS, v2.1 (Eclair), upgradable to v2.2 (Froyo)
