Owners of the Motorola Milestone will have a very big reason to celebrate as the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is now available for the device, thanks to the developers in the CyanogenMod community for their continuous support in delivering brand-new updates for many Android devices. Their latest development, CyanogenMod 9, promises to be the exact replica of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, and more.
This update, however, is not the official update released or endorsed by Motorola but an alternative way of getting Ice Cream Sandwich on your device. This is still a beta version of the firmware, with minor bugs and glitches still present. Core features are [...]
In slightly better firmware update news from Motorola than what we’ve been getting, the company has stated on its Support Forums that the European version of the Motorola Milestone (the DROID in the U.S.) will get an Android 2.2 Froyo update sometime in Q4 of 2010.

Well now, this is a pleasant surprise. Today Cellular South announced that it is now offering the Motorola Milestone to its customers for $149.99 (after mail-in rebate). The Milestone name had been used only by the GSM/UMTS version of the CDMA Motorola DROID that Verizon Wireless offers. This Milestone, however, runs on CDMA networks, which means it has basically a DROID with a different name.
The Cellular South Milestone ships with Android 2.1 loaded, and offers the same 3.7-inch touchscreen display as the Verizon model. Other highlights include a 5mp camera with dual-LED flash, support for 32GB microSD [...]

Motorola has released a firmware update for its Milestone smartphone. The over the air update is first rolling out to Greece with other European countries soon to follow. The update is expected to improve overall stability and functionality as well improve the phone’s alarm and music player.
This morning AndroidPolice pointed out to us that Motorola UK has announced an Android 2.1 update for its Motorola Milestone device, the GSM/UMTS version of the DROID sold by Verizon Wireless.
Full information on how to apply the update is available on the Motorola website, but it is worth pointing out that this operation can be completed by a Windows PC only. Traditionally, updates for Android have come over the air (there’s one waiting on my DROID Incredible at this very moment), so the fact that you need a Windows computer and a USB cable is really unusual.
There are a number of fairly major enhancements that come with Android 2.1, but the most interesting new [...]
Yesterday while meeting with Motorola I shot a quick video demo of Flash 10.1 running on a Motorola DROID (MILESTONE). You can see embedded YouTube videos playing as well as some Flash-based games.
Russell Jefferies at our sister site MobileBurn.com put together a quick unboxing video of the Motorola Milestone (the UMTS version of the DROID). He shows off the hardware a bit and demonstrates the multitouch zooming capabilities of the browser and Google Maps application.
According to bignews.biz, the Motorola Milestone, also known as the Motorola Droid in the United States, is on its way to T-Mobile in the UK. Available only to contract subscribers, the Milestone will be available on a range of price plans, some of which will offer the phone itself for free.
The Milestone is virtually identical to the Droid, offering the latest version of Google’s Android OS, along with an excellent processor, 5MP camera and 3.7’’ touch-screen. The Milestone comes with Motorola’s own GPS navigation software to replace Google’s turn-by-turn equivalent, and also supports multi-touch in the web-browser.
“This new launch means that there are now more than [...]
DROID owners clamoring for some multi-touch like their European counterparts should take a close look at a lively discussion over at AllDroid. Apparently, member t3hSteve was able to hack the multi-touch enabled browser of the Motorola Milestone onto the Motorola DROID. The hack is not for the faint of heart as it requires a rooted device and some familiarity with adb but if you are up for the task, a enviable multi-touch browsing experience will be your just reward. Hit the jump for a short video of the pinch and zoom in action.
