Motorola Milestone XT720

Bump in the road

Motorola got rid of the slide-out QWERTY keyboard, so the XT720 has a sleeker design. However, there's a slight bump the right side--where the LED lights for the media gallery and camera/camcorder notifications are housed--that gives the smartphone a unique look.
