Motorola Droid 3 for US eyes only, Milestone 3 UK release cancelled

The first five-row QWERTY keyboard to grace the Motorola Droid line will reportedly remain stateside. Despite having every reason to believe a third-generation Motorola Milestone would grace both Europe and the UK, online retailer Clove has no plans to carry such device.

Clove has not provided an explanation for why there will not be a Milestone 3, but as geeky-gadgets points out, slow Milestone 2 sales might be to blame. The news is far from official, but should the news come to fruition, here’s your fair warning.

Just in case we’re jumping the gun on this, the Motorola Milestone 3 (Droid 3) will feature a dual-core processor, 8-megapixel camera, HDMI out and of course five-row QWERTY keyboard. The device features Motorola’s custom UI, previously dubbed Motoblur.

Any die-hard Milestone owners in attendance? We’d love to hear your take on the rumored cancellation of the Milestone 3. Is this a smart play on Motorola’s part or would this news, once confirmed, sending you packing to a new smartphone manufacturer? Sound off.

Update: “We’ve heard this morning that the Droid 3/Milestone 3 will not see a UK release. However, we’ve also heard that Motorola will now release the Motorola Pro in the UK, which is due to launch mid-July and is available to pre-order here.” – Clove.
