Motorola W7 Active Edition

Motorola today produced a surprise introduction for the W7 Active Edition. The slider is built for exercise and has multiple sensors to make it useful for running. An accelerometer lets owners switch music tracks by shaking the phone left or right and can silence music or an incoming call by flipping the phone upside-down; a pedometer tracks walks and runs through an exercise app. The support for tilt also helps browsing photos and can be used for specially-made games.

Outside of its athletic purposes, the W7 occupies the now familiar mid-range spot of Motorola phones with a 2-megapixel camera, a front VGA camera for video calls, microSDHC support up to 8GB and stereo Bluetooth. The phone ships to Asia and Latin America later this spring, but support for 3G using 850MHz UMTS hints that it may appear in North America at a later date.
