Motorola W7 Active Edition
Just when you thought that Motorola was dead and buried, along comes the big M with their latest cell phone that aims to get you moving – at least, shaking one’s wrists does constitute as moving, right? The MOTO W7 Active Edition will jump aboard the motion-activated bandwagon with this motion-enabled 3G cell phone boasting an integrated accelerometer which is able to sense your body’s movements, orientation and hand gestures before translating them into a specific task to be executed. According to Alain Mutricy, senior vice president, Motorola Mobile Devices, “For those who are always on the move, the MOTO W7 Active Edition is designed to keep up with the pace. The accelerometer technologies put a new spin on the traditional relationship we have with our phone by not only simplifying how you use it, but making it more fun in the process.”
Not only does the MOTO W7 know which way you’re shaking it, it also features a built-in step pedometer to help keep a faithful record of your daily walks and runs. You will also be able to work out according to your own preference thanks to the pre-loaded Personal Trainer application which develops a personal profile so that you can be able better to set and achieve certain goals. Individual workout profiles can also be concocted, while review summary reports can be analyzed after spending weeks on a particular regime to find out whether it has been effective in helping you battle against the ever-growing bulge right in the middle.
Other features found on the MOTO W7 include a built-in MP3 player, an integrated FM Radio and full screen video viewing, while a 2-megapixel camera is good to capture candid shapshots wherever you are, whreas the secondary VGA camera works great for video calls when keeping in touch with friends and family. This 3G-enabled handset will be out in Q2 this year in Asia and Latin America, with no mention about a Stateside release. You can choose from Licorice and Alpine White colors. Doesn’t look like it will pull Motorola out of the doldrums though.
