    Actually I have the Moto Droid with 2.1 and it has live wallpapers so Motorola does have a phone that does live wallpapers...that would mean the Milestone can do it too with the 2.1 update. But it does not do the 720p video...

    Also my phone has the 3g icon even though it is technically EVDO on Verizon. It is Rev A. They just changed the EVDO on it to say 3G to make people think it is the same kind of 3G that the gsm carriers have.

    The milestone will be a really great phone. I just hope that it comes out from CS with 2.1 on it and not 2.0. Also that it does not have motoblur on it and just the stock android. It is things like motoblur and HTC's sense that cause the long delays in getting updates to newer OS revisions. I would really like to come back to Cell South and if they do get the Moto Shadow I am coming back in a big way. I just hope they keep their unlimited plans and prices.....

    I think the Sprint Evo also says 3G. So some companies may be going to this on newer phones. Traditionally though, the explanation I gave earlier holds true.

    racer I'd bet it comes with stock 2.0 but without motoblur can be updated as soon as the phone is setup. I keep saying the only reason I'm hesitant on getting a htc is bc of their updates. 2.2 should rectify this that's y I'm hoping htc gets the 2.2 out for all 2010 android phones.

    I was mistaken about it being the Stream that was announced for Canada, though... it was the Acer Liquid E that is available in Canada.

    I'm equally hesitant on the milestone bc I don't know if it can handle future update that require high speed processors

    I would "think" that the milestone would be OK for the next year at least. At that point, I will upgrade anyway. With no other androids with keyboards on the horizon for us, it will meet my needs fine for now.

    I've read that htc's ui is wrapped around google's os that its impossible to get timely updates unless u root your phone. the ui makesthe phone more user friendly but its gonna hurt on the back end with getting updates that's a catch 22

    That is correct. I posted that in the last thread. When they do these android updates for phones that run Sense (or motoblu), not only do they have to update the base OS, they also have to update the skins as well. This is what holds back the upgrades for these skinned phones, and why the Droid gets them so much faster.

    I'd get the milestone just bc of that reson. with the 3.0 updates coming out in 2011 I'm not so sure it could handle the update. that's my concern I don't want to get something and in 6 months get left behind. it would be great if motorola or htc address some of these issues but they won't. and it makes me very cautious as to what I should do.

    Did any of you guys root your Hero? I decided to just wait for the new phones to come out... but it might be worth it just to get the experience.
