Motorola Milestone is the first Android 2.1 phone available for Indian users. Although Motorola is not new in Android phones and Motorola Droid was the first one to challenge iPhone but they are not available to Indian users. So apparently Motorola Milestone is the first Android phone in India from Motorola.
Motorola Milestone looks like Nokia N900 and Samsung Omnia Pro B7610 with slider qwerty keypad but it’s more thinner that them. Also, it comes with Android latest version operating system for richer and faster web and media experience.

Apart from these, you can also access Android Market which is growing fast with over 30,000 applications.
