    Hey guys,

    after exactly having the Milestone for One week,
    i want to give a little deeper view on pros and cons of that
    device.

    That summary is subjective and writtten from a former BlackBerry user,
    so some of you maybe not able to figure out the point of some pros and cons, but just read em.

    Ill start with Cons.

    CONS

    -Email:
    Yes i CAN recieve Gmail and any other POP and IMAP Mail, but there are some issues like attachement-saving, 3G/2G sync that is not working the same. It was all a little more comfortable on the Blackberry.

    -Construction:
    As seen in many videos, the Sound-Adjust buttons on the Milestones are totally sloppy and shaking. That is a real bad construction. Also the physical DPAD has a crumbly noise even if you just swipe your fingers over the buttons

    -Contacts:
    A way to sort your contacts by Name, then First name should be implementet, maybe coming with OTA update!

    -Copy paste concept
    To get a number from a website direct to a call would be nice, that was better on the BlackBerry,
    but maybe also one thing that is fixed with OTA update

    -Backup
    An easy software to just oneclick backup/restore would be nice

    THIS IS IT!

    Pros:

    -Concept:

    Everything on the Milestone has been thought over verry well and is designed pretty well, that reaches from menues, to wifi to market...even the 40 Secounds boot is just a pure blast!

    -Speed:
    This device is so amazing huge FAST!!!! In everything, shutdown, boot, wifi, browser, pinch to zoom, whatever!

    -Apps Widgets:
    Just amazing...what else can i say! There is an app for nearly every purpose, and if not, its on the horizon to come soon!

    -Accessories:
    They are not all aviable yet but ive seen a huge amount of crazy stuff to come up soon!

    -Battery Life:
    when i activate 3G network only for Downloading or Surfing then Battery holds nearly 2 days. its just amazing. I do some calls, recieve 50 mails a day, like to game a little ond SNSoid and surf the market a little while.
    Best for smartphones ive ever seen especially when compared to a blackberry storm!


    Neutrals

    -The physical keyboard
    Its nothing great, but its not too bad, i mostly hit every key i intended

    -The SD Card
    It is a little strange to see how folders are created and media is synced, but if you get used to it, its ok

    I hope this helps you guys, buying or not ;)

    Everyone seems to love their phone. Its driving my CRAZY that I still have to wait!!! I cant get mine until its released in Argentina. I am so tempted to just buy the European milestone even though I wont get 3G.

    Yeah, but without 3G this phone doesnt make a lot of sense to me as its best Pro is the SPEED!

    Just wait a little longer, im sure they rush it into Christmas shopping ;)

    I am using a G1 without 3G and its not too bad considering I have wifi just about everywhere I go but I would love having internet radio in my car.
    I have read that it might get released on the 7th of December, but then I have to find out where to buy it! I have taken very good care of my G1 and I dropped it for the first time yesterday and scuffed a corner and the usb cover is starting to break. Its almost like the G1 is saying its time for a new phone.
