Motorola MILESTONE XT720

Motorola this morning officially unveiled the Android 2.1-powered MILESTONE XT720, a device that shares much of its design with the MOTOROI that is being sold in the South Korean market.

Unlike the original MILESTONE, the XT720 lacks a physical QWERTY keyboard, though it makes use of the same 3.7-inch, 854 x 480 pixel resolution touchscreen display as the original MILESTONE.

The XT720 features a new 8 megapixel camera with auto focus and a xenon flash, and is capable of recording 720p resolution HD video. Advanced features like face detection and a simple panorama mode are also built-in.  The phone features an HDMI port and ships with an HDMI cable in the box.  Videos and photos can be stored on the included 8GB microSD memory card.

Motorola has included a copy of its MOTONAV GPS navigation software in the XT720, which also includes support for the typical suite of Google apps like Gmail and YouTube.

No pricing or availability information for the MILESTONE XT720 has been provided so far, but the launch event too place in London, so we’re not sure if this one will make it to the U.S.  A video advertisement for the MILESTONE XT720 and some additional photos are available after the jump.
