Android 2.2 and Motorola Milestone

Outside of Brazil the Motorola Milestone is known as Droid, but has technical characteristics very similar to the version sold here.

Recently Motorola announced that the European and American versions of the device would be upgraded to Android 2.2, Froyo . The Brazilian version would NOT receive the update! Among the advantages of this new version of Android are the possibility to run Flash and install applications also on the memory card. Currently on Android 2.1 it is only possible to install the programs in the internal memory of the device, which is quite limited compared to the usual 8GB of memory card.

Now after much pressure from the community of Android developers and Motorola Milestone users, the company is back. The Froyo for Milestone will be available to Brazilian users in the first quarter of 2011. It’s cheer for coming soon! Milestone is already a great device with Android 2.1 … and will get even better with Android 2.2
