Motorola introduces ultra-thin SLVR L7 iTunes phone

Motorola on Tuesday introduced the SLVR L7 mobile handset, its second-generation iTunes phone featuring an ultra-thin and sleek industrial design.

The quad band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz) Motorola SLVR L7 with support for international roaming is being offered in the US from Cingular Wireless, the nations No. 1 wireless carrier.

The phone features iTunes software with 100 song capacity, built-in stereo speakers, integrated hands-free speakerphone, 262,000 \"vivid color\" TFT display, illuminated etched keypad, VGA camera with 4x digital zoom, and video capture and playback.

Each SLVR L7 also comes with extra ring-tones, Java support for games and applications, AOL/Yahoo!/ICQ instant messaging and Bluetooth connectivity.

According to Motorola, the phone measures 4.5 inches tall by 1.9 inches wide by .45 inches thick and weighs just 3.5 ounces. It features talk time of \"up to 6 hours\" and standby time of \"up to 17 days.\"

The $199 SLVR L7 is only the second phone to bundle Apple\'s mobile iTunes software. The first was Motorola\'s ROKR E1 handset, which made its debut in September of last year. Reviewers and the media were less than enthusiastic about the ROKR E1, which was criticized for its poor user experience and 100 song limit.

Interestingly, Motorola earlier this month revealed that its ROKR E2 handset will not support iTunes and instead will interface with the company\'s proprietary iRadio subscription service.

The Motorola SLVR L7 with iTunes was first detailed in an AppleInsider report this past November.
