Motorola took the wraps off its new Active W450 handset for T-Mobile on Wednesday. The flip phone features a durable design, with rubber sidings for those with (dare we say) active lifestyles. On the outside, you'll find a standard white-and-black color scheme, but on the inside, the phone features a rubberized keypad in either yellow or orange.

Features include a 1.3-megapixel camera with an 8x zoom and video capture, a digital music player, a wireless Web browser, a microSD-card slot, USB mass storage, PC syncing, Bluetooth (no stereo profile), personal-organizer applications, and a speakerphone. Also, the W490 is a full quadband (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) handset. The Active is $159 if you pay full price, or $29 with a 2-year service contract.
