Essentially the Motorola DROID 3, the Milestone XT883 is official in China

Essentially the Motorola DROID 3, the Milestone XT883 is official in China
Considering the unprecedented amount of leaks we’ve been seeing and hearing about the Motorola DROID 3/Milestone 3 over the last couple of weeks, it seemingly makes you think that an official announcement regarding the handset is imminent. Well, it seems that the case is so today.

In fact, Motorola has officially announced the Motorola Milestone XT883 over in China where it’s aiming to go one sale some time in the third quarter. For those who might be confused, the Milestone name is used in place of the DROID branding used by Verizon Wireless in markets outside of the US. So essentially, the Motorola Milestone XT883 is the Motorola DROID 3 that’s expected to become available with Verizon some time in the near future.

In terms of specs, the Milestone XT883 features a larger 4” qHD display, dual-core processor, 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, 1080p video capture, front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.  Gladly, the landscape keyboard has been expanded to a 5-row layout that includes a dedicated row for numbers, which should happily agree with longtime users of previous devices. Moreover, the Milestone XT883 is a world phone that will run on just about any GSM/CDMA network out there.

The Motorola DROID 2 had some hardware improvements under the hood compared to its predecessor, but for the most part, its design scheme remained intact. Again, we’re seeing something similar here, but knowing that it’s jumping up in size with a larger display and beefier hardware specs, we’re certain that this one will once again get some people drooling.
