Unboxing the Motorola Milestone XT720, part 1

What would happen if you cross-bred the original Droid, the Droid 2, and the Droid X? You’d get the Motorola Milestone XT720.

It takes the 3.7″ screen (854×480 pixels), Cortex A8 processor (bumped up to 720 MHz), and 256 MB RAM from the original Droid. It borrows the blue-ish/silver industrial design from the Droid 2. And it shares the lack of keyboard, 8 MP camera (with mechanical shutter), and HDMI output with the Droid X.

It only runs plain-ish Android 2.1, but it spices things up with a Xenon flash and an unlocked GSM/HSPA radio that supports AWS 3G (1700 MHz band used by T-Mobile USA and Wind Canada).

Intrigued yet? Take a look at my unboxing video. Pictures to follow.
