Motorola Milestone XT720 specs get downgrading

Someone tell Motorola they are pushing the wrong way

The Motorola Milestone XT720, the only Milestone handset to be readied for a European launch, has undergone its second specs change in as many weeks as the mystery surrounding the handset’s final specifications continues to grow.

First reports suggested that information on the handset’s developer page initially listed the XT720 as hosting a 550MHz processor before changes boosted it to a more name appropriate 720MHz chip. Latest news, however, has the XT720 listed with a processor “Up to 720MHz”.

Such indecision isn’t limited to the device’s processor, either. First listed touting 256MB of RAM, the Motorola Milestone had its memory bumped up to 512MB before the new listings see it settling back down to 256MB ahead of its expected July 2nd launch.

Whilst it was a pleasant surprise to have the specs bumped up to levels that would have given the XT720 a sprightly, exuberant energy, its return to more conventional specs is both disappointing and an irritating tease from Motorola.

Stay turned to T3.com to find out exactly what specs the Motorola Milestone XT720 is rocking when it finally hits UK shelves.
