Motorola shows off the Milestone 2 in a video

If you've been waiting for the GSM version of the Droid 2, you're in luck -- Motorola has shown off the Milestone 2 in two minutes of video.  With the same sliding keyboard, same camera with dual LED flash, same 1 GHz processor, same as we're used to from the original Droid / Milestone team.

With one big difference -- apparently if you change the colors of the launcher, not-blur becomes Blur, and Moto isn't afraid to call it such this time around.  We like the resizable widgets, and other cool things the Motorola home offers, so we won't complain too much.  Be sure to check out the video after the break.  Thanks Albert!

Update: Annnnnnd ... It's gone. Guess it was more of us showing it off than them. :p

  • The video says private... Never thought I'd be able to say it but "first"
  • Seems like youtube removed the Video
  • The video says private...
  • Video Yay YouTube fame :D Wrong name in the comment area I (Grischa) and sd.norm were switched
  • The Milestone has Blur on it?? I love my Droid 1. And as long as manufacturers refuse to release phones with stock Android on them, I think I will be keeping my Droid for a very, very long time.
  • Pray nothing goes wrong with it, then.. I was planning on keeping my Droid for its full 2-years (and probably a bit more), but the touchscreen flaked out on me. Would have been perfectly happy getting even a refurb Droid as a replacement, but Verizon sent me a brand new Droid 2 instead. Incrementally better hardware, sure, but Motorola's "enhancements" just get in the way and make me feel like I got a downgrade.
  • Yeah it looks like it will have blur. But they did mention it shoots HD video which the Droid 2 doesnt.
  • Am i missing something here. This does not excite me. I have a droid. I say whats next? I'am ready for a new WOW from motorola.
  • We need the Droid X equivalent here in Europe.
  • What about a Milestone X WHERE IS IT
  • I hope they release it soon!
  • Wouldn't the Milestone 2 just be a less compatible version of the Droid 2 World Edition?
  • Where were you a month ago ?
    Only if they leaked it a month earlier ...
  • Milestone X soon? {{-_-}}
