Motorola launches XT720 Android


Motorola is to offer the Milestone XT720 Android smartphone, the first to feature a Xenon flash.

The 10.9mm-thick Milestone XT720 features an eight megapixel camera with a Xenon flash, 10x digital zoom and a 720p HD camcorder.

This offers smart image capture with face detection, multi shot, face filter, red eye reduction, camera shake prevention and more, Motorola said. HDMI connectivity allows HD video captured on the Milestone XT720 to be viewed directly on an HDTV. It supports an 8GB microSD memory card, expandable up to 32GB.

A suite of Google mobile applications including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail and YouTube are also integrated onto the device, as well as Motorola’s MOTONAV turn-by-turn navigation.

Motorola’s vice president and general manager for mobile devices Ralf Gerbershagen said: “Milestone XT720 is one of the most powerful phones in Motorola’s current smartphone range. Slim, sophisticated and technically savvy, Milestone XT720 is a high performance device designed for those who are actively engaged in both their work and social lives.

“With Milestone XT720, Motorola has taken yet another step towards eliminating the barriers for consumers to creating and consuming media on the go.”
