Today Motorola announced the availability of its MOTOACTV W450 clamshell cell phone on T-Mobile. The W450 is a durable cell phone designed with the active lifestyle in mind. It features a rubberized outer cover for a sure grip, and has a "chin bar" that makes it easy to connect the phone to a belt or backpack. The outdoorsy W450 also comes with a Mayo Clinic designed first aid application that tells users how to deal with many common problems that occur out on the trail.

More traditional features of the W450 include a 1.3 megapixel camera and a built-in MP3 player. Music can be enjoyed with either 2.5mm jack compatible wired headphones. The W450's microSD memory card slot provides potential storage expansion of up to 2GB, which should provide plenty of room for music and photos on a long hike.

Update: Motorola's original press release was incorrect in stating that the W450 supports Bluetooth stereo. It does not.

The MOTOACTV W450 is a quad-band GSM/EDGE compatible handset that sports Motorola's Crystal Talk system for clear audio quality even in noisy environments. The built-in battery is rated for up to 10 days of standby time or 7.5 hours of talk time.

The Motorola MOTOACTV W450 is available from T-Mobile starting today for $29.99 after associated online instant and mail-in rebates. It is available in two black and white color schemes, one with orange accents, the other with yellow accents.
