Cellular South has added yet another Android-powered smartphone to its portfolio, the Motorola Milestone X. You may know this device as the Droid X for Verizon – the original, not the Droid X2. Since only Verizon has permission to use the Droid brand, the phone obviously needed to be renamed before it could be sold by Cellular South. In fact, Alltel also has this handset, and also calls it the Milestone X.
So that’s that. Cellular South is asking $149.99 for the device, but there are catches. First off, you’ll have to sign a new two-year contract with the carrier. Then, you will actually pay $199.99 when you order the phone. You’ll get a form that you can mail in later to receive $50 back – on a Visa prepaid card. Oh, and you have to get a data plan with that two-year contract.
If none of the above seems problematic to you, then you may want to head on over to Cellular South and get yourself a brand new Motorola Milestone X.
What you’re getting is a smartphone running Android 2.2 Froyo, and having a 4.3-inch 854×480 capacitive touchscreen, an 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, a 1 GHz processor, a 2 GB microSD card included in the sales package, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth, and a 1540 mAh battery.
