Motorola Milestone / Droid dubbed QRTY in Korea, Froyo not included yet

Since Android 2.2 Froyo is out (and the Google Nexus One already has it), you’d think that all high-end Android smartphones launched starting now would come with it. Sadly, that’s not the case.

Motorola Milestone / Droid (i.e. the old Milestone, not the new XT720) has just been introduced in South Korea running Android 2.1 and bearing an odd name: Moto QRTY.

The QRTY is not really different form the Milestone / Droid available in other parts of the world, although it does have a keyboard with Korean characters.

We’ve recently heard that, in the US, the Droid should be updated to Froyo later this month, so the European Milestone and this brand new QRTY might also get the latest version of Android pretty soon. Until then, if you’re in South Korea, you can buy the Motorola QRTY through SK Telecom – which also sells the Motoroi.
