The Motorola’s new smartphone – Milestone, basically the Euro-spec, GSM Droid has become a top-selling gadget over in the U.K. According to the retailer eXpansy, the Milestone has become the fastest-selling gadget in its 11 years in business–even faster than the iPhone. The Milestone sold out in less than three hours after going on sale yesterday. Pre-orders were also strong, coming in around the 1,000 mark.
It might be a bit too early to call the Droid/Milestone a rousing international success since the “data” here is just from one retailer– and a retailer named “expansys” that uses a random capitalized X, at that. Also missing is an actual hard figure on the number of phones sold. But in any case this recent news is a big positive for the once-spiraling Motorola. [via Engadget]
