Looks like our Canadian freinds will have to wait a little bit before putting their cold hands on the Motorola Milestone / Droid. Motorola Canada is announcing today that the Android 2.0 flagship phone will be available early 2010 on Telus. No word on the price though & it should be noted that Google Navigation won’t be available (it’s currently on US-based).

TORONTO, Nov. 10 /CNW/ – Motorola Canada today announced it will bring its first Android(TM)-powered device, the much-anticipated Motorola Milestone, only to TELUS customers in early 2010. Motorola Milestone, powered by the newest version of Android, sets a new standard for what a smartphone should be with a richer mobile web experience, superior messaging and top-of-the-line multi-media features in an innovative design that could only come from Motorola.

Milestone features the best of both worlds with a full QWERTY keyboard and touch-screen capabilities, as well as the opportunity for users to customize their mobile like never before with widgets and the freedom to run multiple applications at once.

“With Motorola Milestone, Canadians will no longer be limited in what they can do with their smartphone,” said Rick Gadd, vice-president, Motorola Canada Mobile Devices. “They will experience the web the way they’ve always wanted on a mobile device, with lightning fast speeds and pages that show them more.”

Get the web, get it faster, see it better

Milestone takes the power of Google Search(TM) beyond the web right into the phone. Search and retrieve applications, contacts, songs, and more right from the home screen. With local search, Google(TM) makes location-based recommendations according to where the user is.

Experience the mobile web like never before. Milestone’s 3.7″ WVGA display offers a clearer, more brilliant screen with twice the resolution of its competitors. Quick and nimble, Milestone is always ready for lightning-fast browsing with its superior processing speeds, Flash 10-ready HTML browsing, and premium 3G+ connection speeds. Navigation has never been easier with double-tap and pinch and zoom.

“TELUS’ new 3G+ network gives Canadians access to a world-class selection of mobile devices such as the Motorola Milestone,” said David Neale, senior vice-president of Product and Services at TELUS. “It is TELUS commitment to offer Canadians the most comprehensive and advanced smartphone line-up available so that we can meet their needs to stay connected, informed and entertained wherever they go. That’s why the Motorola Milestone will fit perfectly in our TELUS smartphone selection.”

    Awesome info here. I have tried and tested both phones, although not side by side. My immediate response was ‘Is Motorola and Google afraid of a lawsuit from Apple in terms of Multi touch’? I’d love that feature on this phone.

    I love the functionaility of the Milestone though, and the screen is utterly gorgeous. One other thing that I liked was the ‘lip’ at the bottom of the Milestone which I found not an intrusion, more a welcome step to stabability when sliding out that generously sized QWERTY keypad.

    I think Android will dominate the smart phone market in 2010 – with the HTC Bravo ‘Google Phone’ coming out with its 1GHz Snapdragon CPU.

    Thank you for the images
