    You realise Milestone doesn't have Google navigation? Or working Facebook sync? Or, for that matter, an update to 2.0.1 yet?

    Good points... but all those can be "acquired", right?

    I don't know about Google Navigation. It's a US-only thing, anyway. The work-around is "buy CoPilot"

    I do not as yet know of any way to get facebook sync working. I've searched around and not had much luck there.

    And as for 2.0.1? Motorola have, after a month of it being released on the Droid, finally admitted that there will be an update this month. On a facebook page that many people don't read. Rumour has it that it might surface on Wednesday, but no concrete news is available.

    I've written a large rant on this subject on the Motorola Forums.

    On the upside, we do have a multitouch browser.

    Or you could root the Milestone and get the updates... :D

    Nope, The Milestone has different hardware. The 2.0.1 update for Droid won't run well on the Milestone - it doesn't support the GSM chipset.

    I thought that was a location thing. A milestone in the US will have google nav.

    AFAIK, there are no "US version Milestones"...yet. Google NAV may be acquired, but I'd be more concerned about the lack of 3G support for US carriers. I believe only the Canadian version Milestone will support HSPA, on AT&T only.

    Yes, I would make damn sure you will not be stuck on AT&T EDGE without 3G service.

    I wasn't saying a US version, I was saying a European model in the US would have a working Google Nav.

    I'm saying that Euro Milestones "do not have Google Nav", at least not Turn-by-turn, "natively". I don't know if "activating the phone" in the states will "activate NAV software". But like I said, I'm sure it could be "installed", one way or anoter.
