Motorola Milestone selling well in UK The UK-based online retailer eXpansys is reporting that the Motorola Milestone (the DROID without Google Maps Navigation) has sold out in the region in "record time," a brisk 2.5 hours.
"Today (Thursday 10th December) 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", said the retailer, via Pocket-lint.

The company added that they were forced to increase their direct order from Motorola twice, but that they should be re-stocked in time for Christmas.

Adds Roger Butterworth, eXpansys' CEO: "The demand for the Motorola Milestone has been staggering. We received the units at 10am on Thursday, 2.5 hours later we had sold out. A second shipment is already on the way and should be arriving in time for Christmas orders".

i am glad to see Motorola finally back on their feet after many failed attempts ever since their razr line-up. Not saying their phones after the razr were bad, i own the rizr z3 and rokr e8 myself, but the phones just never took off and sold with their full potential. they were only mild successes compared to the razr and droid.

Let me preface this by saying, i love my droid and think it is one of the best phones on the market right now...

This story has to many unknowns to REALLY say that the milestone is selling better than anything else. Who is to say that they had more than oh, 1,000 units in stock? It is funny that after selling out initially and havnt been out since. Marketing ploy methinks...
