GSM DROID launches in EU as 'Milestone' The newly launched Motorola DROID will hit Italy and Germany in the next month, says Motorola, bringing a GSM version of the smartphone to the continent just days after the release of the CDMA version for the Verizon network in the U.S.
The phone will be re-dubbed the MILESTONE and will feature most of the same specs as the Droid with some notable additions and subtractions.

The MILESTONE will include multi-touch support which is oddly disabled for the DROID for the time being. However, the phone will not include the new free Google Navigation GPS system, which is not "ready" for Europe yet. Users will instead get a two-month trial for MOTONAV, Motorola's turn-by-turn GPS.

The full specs of the phone are:
* WCDMA/900/2100, GSM 850/900/1800/1900, HSPA, GPRS connectivity
* Android 2.0 OS
* Full Slide out QWERTY
* 3.7″; WVGA (480 x 854 pixels); 16:9 widescreen; PPI 267
* 5 megapixel camera
* Wi-Fi, GPS, Accelerometer
* 1400 mAh battery
