Motorola MILESTONE now available on Telus; good news for AT&T customers
Any AT&T customers that are envious of Verizon trotting Motorola DROID owners may need to only look north for some answers to a high-end Motorola Android smartphone. Canadian provider TELUS has announced the launch of the Motorola MILESTONE which will hold its ground against other premier phones in Canada. Customers can look forward to a $199.99 price tag on a 3-year voice and data contract while those who prefer being untethered can simply pay for its no contract price of $599.99. That's an extreme amount of money to dish out on any phone, but there may be some AT&T customers lurking about that would handsomely pay that exorbitant price for a taste of 3G Android love. Their best bet is to purchase it for the full retail price, get it across the border, and finally attempt to get it unlocked so they can use it on AT&T's network. If all of that can seemingly be effortless, one will be greeted to the powers of the Motorola MILESTONE domestically.

I bet if AT&T picked it up people would still buy it. But you are right... the x10 is sick! The HTC Desire would be the phone I buy, GSM or CDMA... if it ever comes to VZW, or by some other variant, i would totally buy it. Maybe the late release would include a faster processor... but if the DROID/Milestone comes GSM stateside, other Android phones with faster processors and better hardware will not make the upgrade worth it.
