For a phone that seemed to cause such a stir in the US when it launched last year, the Motorola Milestone (called the Droid in the US) has barely raised a ripple this side of the pond. No network has signed up for the device in fact, only Orange lists Motorola handsets at all in the UK and while enthusiasts snapped up the first batch from online retailer Expansys before Christmas, it has all gone very quiet since then.
It`s easy to see why Motorola might now be feeling a little bit sheepish about its much vaunted iPhone killer. There is a new kid on the block: Google`s Nexus One, which sports an updated version of the Android operating system that the Milestone contains, a better screen and a sexier look.
It`s also easy to see why Google has got fed up with mobile phone manufacturers putting its increasingly elegant Android software into a bunch of ugly bricks and decided that it needed to be in complete control of its own handset in order to stop the iPhone stealing the smartphone show. From the uninspiring T-Mobile Pulse and the chunky Motorola Dext to the HTC Hero, with its weird "chin", and the temperamental Samsung Galaxy i7500, Android devices have hardly been trend setters.
