The rumors were short-lived, as Motorola has just made it official. The Motorola Droid Android 2.0 powered smartphone is coming to Europe and strangely enough, it's getting a less desirable name: Motorola Milestone.

There are no new features on the Milestone, except for the addition of multi-touch pinch zooming to the browser. Hardware-wise, we're still getting the same 13.7mm thick QWERTY slider with a 3.7-inch widescreen display, 5.0 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, 3.5mm headphone jack and stereo Bluetooth. The Milestone comes packed with a full suite of Google apps, like Maps, Talk, Mail and YouTube.

Italy and Germany will be the first European markets to receive the Motorola Milestone, with more countries coming in the near future. The smartphone maker hasn't released any pricing info, but according to rumors, O2 will carry the device and sell it for €404.2 (~$596).

I don't really understand why they couldn't keep the name.. Droid sounds awesome in any language, right?

DROID is a registered trademark of Lucasfilm Ltd. and its related companies. Used under license.

... that may be the reason why ...
