Expansys reckons UK version of Motoroi will be yours from beginning of next month.

The Motorola Milestone XT720 was slapped with a Q2 release date by Moto earlier this week. But now Expansys has gone all specific, saying it’ll be available on 2 July.

With a SIM-free price of £449.99, it’s certainly not cheap, and with the original Milestone initially suffering from a lack of network backing at first, it may be a case of waiting to see who offers a decent deal before ponying up.

Of course, this 2 July release date should be treated with caution. Expansys has a rep going back years of claiming phones would be available and then pushing the date back. However, this does slip neatly into Motorola’s own timeframe for the device.

For those at the back, the Milestone XT720 is the UK edition of the much-hyped Motoroi, packing in Android 2.1 and an 8 megapixel camera, while jettisoning the original Milestone’s naff keyboard.
