Motorola released a video showing off the new features of the Motorola Milestone 2, which appears to be an exact copy of the Droid 2, including "a 1GHz OMAP SOC, 512MB of RAM, a 5 megapixel imager, and Android 2.2 as the OS (complete with Flash Player and Froyo's native hotspot ability)." However, it appears that the original video was released before Motorola intended it to be, as the removed the video shortly afterwards, only to put it back up again later.
Many people figured that the Droid 2 would be headed to Europe and other markets (as the Droid did), and that the device would follow the same naming strategy that the Droid used, but this is the first time we have had official confirmation.
According to Phandroid, "thanks to an error on someone at Moto’s part, for but a brief moment an official promotional video for the Motorola Milestone 2 found its way to YouTube. The video was subsequently pulled, but" someone managed to make a copy of the video before it was removed. Strangely though, the original copy from Motorola is once again available for viewing.
Check out the video for yourself here, thanks to someone who recorded the movie before it was removed:
Android Central had this to say regarding Motorola's announcement of MotoBlur on the Milestone 2:
...apparently if you change the colors of the launcher, not-blur becomes Blur, and Moto isn't afraid to call it such this time around. We like the resizable widgets, and other cool things the Motorola home offers, so we won't complain too much.
Engadget believes that there is a strong possibility "the rest of the world will be getting its dose of Moto's latest and greatest QWERTY slider in very short order."
