So there’s my brand new Motorola Milestone, with Android 2.1
Yes, it has Bluetooth.
Yes, it has WiFi.
Yes, it has USB.
But can you use Bluetooth for anything useful (DUN or PAN/NAP)? No. (I think I even had to install an “app” first for it to be able to receive OBEX Push…)
Can you use it as a WiFi access point / router? No.
Can you get IP connection via the USB port? No.
Short: there is no way you can use the mobile Internet connection of your Phone e.g. with a laptop. That’s something my (really crappy) Sony Ericsson K600i did more than 5 years ago. And almost every other phone since the availability of GPRS, even back when the connection was via IRDA and not Bluetooth.
So the Milestone (and probably almost every other Android phone) is a clumsy, heavy, but mostly useless brick.
I honestly don’t care if there are “apps” (of course at additional cost and most of them crap, or requiring that I first hack the phone for root access) that can enable functionality that should definitely be there from the start.
I probably should have insisted on getting a N900 instead.
