Motorola Milestone Sells Out in Less Than 3 Hours in UK

motorola-droidThe Motorola Droid, or the Motorola Milestone as it’s called in Europe, has been making waves in the UK. Online retailer eXpansys, an exclusive vendor of the Motorola Milestone, revealed today that the new Motorola handset completely sold out in about 2.5 hours. eXpansys had received over 1000 pre-orders for the Milestone and the retailer says it had to increase its Milestone shipment from Motorola twice.

“On Thusday December 10th, the first shipment of the Motorola Milestone was delivered into the UK, to be sold exclusively by eXpansys.com. Within 3 hours of the product being listed as ‘in stock’ on the eXpansys site it sold out. This makes the Motorola Milestone the fastest selling gadget in the website’s 11 year history, even more successful than the iPhone“, says eXpansys in a statement to Pocket-lint.

These include the lack of LTE connectivity, the half-baked crown button, and the absence of now-standard health features such as ECG and body weight composition. With its next watch, OnePlus appears to be addressing some of those issues, a recent certification listing in China has revealed.

You don’t want to see this warning on your Google Pixel phone

It's summertime in the U.S., so it's getting hot. When that happens, keeping yourself and your mobile devices cool is important. With that in mind, Google is developing a new message that will be displayed on Pixel phones when they overheat.
