It was totally worth the trouble

I will not go into the details of how I finally managed to get the Milestone 3 or Droid 3 as it is known in the US. It will suffice to say that the process involved having a good friend in the States and a lot of will to get the phone.
First hurdle was to get the phone unlocked in order to use it with the UK Vodafone some card. One would have thought that Verizon being part owned by Vodafone could have made the process easier, but no. So 23 Euro later the phone was unlocked.
Set up is straight forward and logical with the latest Android software (which I have already tried in my Motorola Atrix). Interface is friendly and navigable. Setting up my 3 emails accounts took a bit of time as Exchange was being difficult all the time. In the end I got the App from Android market that sorted it out just as well.
Screen is great both in the sense of size and quality. Camera is on the level with the likes of Sony Experia Arc and iPhone 4.
Love the new Qwerty with a separate row for the numerals (so no more Alt fiddling). Typing is fast and efficient. The phone learns your most utilised words fast and having 3 options of text input makes it helpful but not overbearing as in some versions.
The battery has been improved dramatically and once put through the paces came out with flying colours. Still, the Atrix battery is somewhat juicier, but compared with the most rivals on the market Droid 3 holds its own very well.
I like to solid feel of the phone and some weight as well.

- Qwerty keyboard, long battery life, brilliant software
- Can not get it in the UK, Verizon add-ins
- Have to unlock the phone for using with non-Verizon sim card
