Word of Wind Mobile picking up the Motorola Milestone XT720 has been blowing in the, er, wind for some time now, but a recent shot of an internal training screen reveals that the handset launch should be right around the corner. This will mark a significant upgrade from the carrier’s first Android handset the low-end Huawei U8100. This will also give Wind a fairly nice excluive for Canadian Android lovers to consider — the phone has a pretty low presence in North America in general.
The source of the news has the XT720 pegged for a release towards the end of the month, but no word on what the pricing will be like. Wind is a pay-as-you-go carrier, so don’t expect any subsidies to drop the price of this handset too low. It has been selling for over $500 unlocked, so it will be interesting to see where Wind prices it.
