I'm quite tempted, i'm torn between a Milestone and keeping my Acer Liquid (which I guess is a common question!)

Already order mine, inreplacement of the DEXT (which is hopeless for root and who care about Cupcake when there are Eclair!)
It will take almost a week since I'm in Thailand and order through Expansys Singapore.

I think I will be getting one as my next phone - I planned OmniaPRO originally, but Milestone/Droid is definitely better.
But after new year most likely, when supply becomes more adequate, price drops and possible caveats surface ;)

I have had mine for a week now, having previously had a G1.

I'm impressed with it, the biggest issue I have with it is unlocking it - insofar as you have to press the power button on the top, in order to bring up the unlock screen. This is ok, until you are trying to have say a Google chat or IM session with someone - it's infuriating that the default time out is short.

I'd much prefer it if I could blank the screen, and be able to awaken it with a shake or a tap on the front, rather than try to find that small power button.

The hard keyboard also is much more difficult to use than on the G1, but actually it's not a huge problem because the soft keyboard is a delight and joy to use.

The G1 had a rather cute little trackball - I really miss that... The Milestone's joypad - which is on the side of the hard keyboard, just isn't as good - plus, it means you have to slide it out to use it.


Regards,



Ian

I got one about two weeks, and so far i love it.
Let's hope that the update dosen't take to long so that root will be a reality. :)

Paul the question is which one is more worth it? at the state both is in Hero can be rooted while Milestone cant yet. Say if both stays this way in the next 12 month.. which one is more fun to use? I was gonna go with Hero but the more i see milestone review on youtube the more i like it.. the only downside so far that i can see is the inability to root it yet and the battery life.. how is it compared to htc hero though? similar battery life or hero is better? I dont mind being a milestone owner if it surpasses Hero in both the above mentioned. anybody used both before to give an input?

Milestone battery life is a bit less than Hero for me, but then it's superior spec wise in virtually every department!

Thanks Paul, can u giv an example of how u use both ur hero and milestone and how long it can last per day?
Would u be doing a MCR special with possibly sense ui for milestone once it is rooted?

I am getting the milestone in hk so i hope they sell batteries there..

Had mine from expansys for just one day, its like a German tank or a Hummer.
Big, heavy and very solid build.

So I'll get the N1 when or if it gets released to the public.
