Motorola shakes it up with the W7

The Motorola W7 is a new motion-enabled phone aimed at Asian and Latin American markets.

Motorola W7 Active Edition

Motorola wants you to wave your hands like you just don't care--with the new Motorola W7 Active Edition. This motion-enabled phone has an accelerometer that uses gestures to perform tasks.

For example, you can flip the phone over to shut up an incoming call, snooze the alarm clock, or put the music on pause. You can shake it twice to launch a favorite application, and you can flick the phone right or left to browse through your media library.

Those who want to get fit can also use a built-in step pedometer that will count and record your daily walks. Motorola even included a Personal Trainer app that lets you work toward you fitness goals. If you prefer fun and games, you can use the W7 to shake, jump, and dance your way through some of the preloaded titles.

Other features of the W7 include an MP3 player, FM radio, stereo Bluetooth, an optional 8GB of external memory, 3G speeds, a 2-megapixel camera, a second VGA camera for video calls, and a full screen mode to check out video clips.

The Motorola W7 will be available soon (in the second quarter) in Asia and Latin America in two colors: Licorice and Alpine White. No idea if and when we'll get to see this in the U.S. or how much it'll cost.
