The Motorola Milestone is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated devices that will be coming to Canada this year. To date their has been several rumoured launch dates and it looks like we are getting a bit closer… still no confirmed date. We received a couple pics from the upcoming Best Buy Mobile Buyer’s Guide and state that it’s still “coming soon”.

*Update – we’ve got news about the price plans. Although we’re told these prices are “subject to change” but this is what is showing up in the inventory system: $199 on a 3 year contract and $549 outright.

Who’s excited?
(By the way… I personally like the shout out to our Canadian Olympians on the cover!)

    Price and date!

    Funny the second add doesn’t have any Telus branding and all the 3G compatible network. Unlocked pone? or am I reading too much into it?

  • SHuelin

    The phone is amazing, but the name is horrible. Should have stuck with Droid

  • Lexcyn

    Ugh, just release it already!!

  • Rich

    Interesting how it’s virtually -always- best buy with some sort of link.

    As for the phone itself, the hardwares appealing to me, but never quite understood everyones obsession with Android (looks old school).

  • Erik Berkun-Drevnig

    So.. February?

  • Saif

    Since I still got 2 years on my contract, it will have to depend on the price!!

    I really want the Nexus One, but I am tired of sitting around waiting for phones to finally come to Canada.

    “Powered by Android 2.0″

    I was hoping they would launch with 2.1 like on the Nexus One. In fact, I thought that was the reason for the delay :(

    @SHuelin

    That name belongs to Verizon though. Dunno if they’re still gonna do it, but they were planning on calling all their Android phones Droid something.

  • Lexcyn

    Well Motorola already stated that all Milestone/Droid models will be updated to 2.1 at some point this year.

    Most likely it will be launching with 2.01, which is better than 2.0.

  • Andy Savu

    For all of you who are complaining about the name, the milestone is actually different than the Droid, the milestone is the European version of the phone. Therefore it has multitouch capabilities and other fancies that the droid does not. So be happy its the milestone not the droid!

  • Jdizzle

    Don’t want to keep throwing dates in the rumor pool but a Telus rep I know said February 15th is the solid date. These mag images just give more evidence towards that date

  • Colin

    Any word of this launching on Bell? I’m still stuck in a contract with them but would love to have this phone!

  • Lexcyn

    $549 is a GREAT price for this outright.

    Will be getting one of these DAY 1!

  • Voodoo

    I hate exclusive carrier deals, this device should have been released on all carriers months ago.

  • Ralph Yu

    549 dollars is REALLY good for a phone with this kind of function…i mean i am so tempted to buy it just the device only!! as long as it has multitouch i am adding it to my mobile collection!!!

  • terryd

    I’ve owned both the Motorola Milestone and the Nexus one running unlocked on the Rogers network. N1 wins hands down

  • Dave

    At 549$, can I unlock it and make it work on Bell’s network??

  • Labrat

    @Dave Yes, search for unlock code for motorola milestone. Most should support Telus Milestone for anywhere between 5$ – 15$, codes sent withing a few hours.

    Telus will not likely provide unlock codes if you are just buying the device without a contract with them.

    The flyer is in stores now, atleast in Ottawa.
