Playing with a Motorola Milestone

I’m not what you’d call a “phone guy”. I don’t keep up with trends, it took me for ever to cave and get a Blackberry, I don’t text..etc. the mobile phone for me is a necessary evil, and that’s pretty much where it ends.

So imagine my surprise when Motorola offered me a new Milestone phone to play with. I like gadgets as much as the next guy, so I said sure! I’d never played with an Android-based phone before, might even be fun.

Android is google’s phone operating system, and while I don’t know much about it, when I powered it up, it asked for my google account, and after a few mins, my gmail/contacts/calendar/etc were all set on the phone. Very, very cool. It’s also a fun little machine to browse the web with, something I can’t stand to do on the Blackberry, it’s just too damn small. This screen is nice & sharp, and pretty easy to read even for my not-so-great eyes..

So just as a bedside browser & alarm clock, this thing is pretty cool so far. I’ll play with it for a few weeks, and let you know what I think. Don’t expect a full review with specs and all that, specs do nothing for me. So if you want to discuss specs, I’m sure there are phone forums where people argue this stuff all day long..

I’ll give you my impressions and what I found good & bad at the end of the month..
