Cellular South confirms Motorola Milestone

Regional carrier Cellular South confirmed today what we posted last week – the Motorola Milestone is coming soon. The carrier posted a riddle on their Facebook page earlier today that I had been struggling with, but our friends over at AndroidGuys figured it out (boy I feel dumb now).

The Motorola Milestone (aka Droid) will join the HTC Hero in Cellular South’s Android lineup. More devices are expected to be announced soon, but this is the “true game-changer” they hinted at last week. Even though the Droid came out last year, it is still the best Android phone you can purchase with a full QWERTY keyboard. I know a lot of T-Mobile users who would jump at the chance to get the phone if they could.

I must say we are certainly impressed with Cellular South’s Android strategy. Even though they are a smaller regional carrier, it looks like they are taking Android more serious than some of the big boys (like AT&T).

Many of you have asked, “What’s next for Android?”
It won’t be long now.
Look out for an announcement very soon.
Everyone is going to be excited when they see what’s next.
Sorry we can’t tell you the name of the phone just yet.
There’s one thing we can tell you, though.
Once you’ve seen what this phone can do, you’ll be amazed.
Now, stay tuned.
Everyone will know eventually, but you’ll hear it here first.Cellular Southvia Facebook

    Wow… just wow… I am certainly going to try and purchase a Milestone… I have long struggled with the inferior capabilities of my poor underpowered Motorola Cliq with T-Mobile. Even though there are plans for a Android 2.1 Motoblur upgrade the hardware will still be first gen… I can not wait to get my hands on one!

    Even though I don’t find a hardware keyboard to be a necessity, I’d be ten times more likely to buy this phone than the abomination that is the myTouch Slide. Are you listening, T-Mobile?

    This is awesome news for Cellular South customers. Kind of pathetic that the “big guys” like T-Mobile have such a lousy lineup. Wish US Cellular and/or Cellular South had coverage in my area–I’d switch.

    Milestone. Uses the same bands as AT&T correct?

      Not this version. Cellular South is a CDMA carrier just like Verizon or Sprint.

    I use to have Cellular South. There plan pricing was one of the best I ever had. I don’t live in there coverage area anymore. I think there commitment to Android to newer devices is a plus to there customers.
