We normally don’t write about phones being released in China, but this one is obviously a special case. China Telecom is now set to carry the Motorola Milestone 3 sometime in the third quarter. You know what the American version of this phone is? Of course you do! It’s the Motorola DROID 3. And Verizon hasn’t even officially announced theirs yet. In case you needed a refresher on the specs of this thing:

  • A dual-core processor capable of opening web pages twice as fast as most other smartphones, rendering games faster, supporting 27% faster multitasking than the previous version, and displaying HD video on big-screen TVs
  • Runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), the latest operating system from Google
  • 4.0-inch qHD display, offering high resolution and 24-bit color, making it easier to read indoors and outdoors
  • Combined five-row QWERTY and touchscreen keypad for faster and easier typing and texting
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with an LED flash, 1080p video-capable
  • Front-facing camera for video chat
  • Up to 32GB of storage (16GB internal) – enough to store thousands of songs, photos and movies
  • Comprehensive business features, including: GAL Lookup for eMail & Calendar access; remote Go-To-Meeting access (Citrix); remote document access (QuickOffice); and complex security, password, data encryption and remote wipe
  • Android World Phone calling capabilities in more than 200 countries

Their version is a world phone, just as Verizon’s version is rumored to be. We know it’s out there, Big Red. Don’t do this to us again. We’ve experienced it too many times before. It hurts. Head to the source link for full press details. [Motorola]
