MOTOROKR W6 handset
Motorola in Mexico earlier this week announced the upcoming release of the MOTOROKR W6 handset, which hopes to combine music with a set of fitness-tracking apps. Users can enter their name, age, sex, weight and height into a fitness app that will then create a training plan based on that information. There is also a timer that keeps track of the duration of workout and the theoretical number of calories burned. The handset can export this information into a Microsoft Excel document for tracking progress over time.
More commonplace features include dedicated music keys and stereo Bluetooth support for wireless headphones or headsets. The 20MB of internal space can be expanded by 2GB via a microSD memory card. A 1.3-megapixel camera captures images and videos.
No pricing or launch information has been released for the phone, but Motorola will release it in Mexico first. [via PhoneArena]
