A few months ago, Motorola launched the Milestone in Hong Kong and Singapore (Mar). Motorola will launch a new Android phone tomorrow in Hong Kong. We also have word that there is a launch event in Singapore tomorrow but we suspect they will launch the BackFlip instead.
It is suspected that the new phone is the XT701. The XT701 is very similar to the Milestone except that it doesn’t come with a slide out keyboard. It has a 3.7″ screen with 5 mega pixel camera. For Milestone users who have been complaining about the lack of a Chinese interface, the XT701 comes with a full Chinese interface and it is preloaded with Android 2.1
We anticipate that the Milestone XT701 to be an exclusive deal with Hong Kong’s Vodaphone-Smartone, the suggested retail price in HK is HKD 3980.
