Motorola slept too long and now, they are awake with an attitude and something new for us geeks and non-geeks. Presenting, the Motorola Milestone (GSM), Motorola’s latest Android phone.

Motorola Milestone is the GSM version of Motorola Droid, a CDMA device offered by Verizon. The latter was launched in America on October 17 and the former was then eventually introduced in Britain on December 10. Milestone is noted for its features and top-notch design. It boasts an Android OS, 5 megapixel camera and a full qwerty keyboard. One of the notable differences of Milestone and Droid is that the former has multi-touch.  Built to bring down the Iphone, Motorola Milestone is packed with more features the Iphone doesn’t have. When its TV ad was launched in the States, it listed several things which Iphone doesn’t have and ended it with “Droid Does”. The video below says it all.

Motorola recently launched this phone in Hong Kong last December 12, being the first country to have Milestone at their shopping disposal. (Lucky Chinese!) In the Philippines, according to a Motorola representive I emailed, he said, “..presently, there is no information available about the exact release date of this handset in the Philippines.” I then realized that Milestone’s release in the Philippines is imminent. People from Motorola Philippines just do not know the exact date. Get ready Philippines!

Meanwhile, check out the complete spec of Motorola Milestone:

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
