Tmo announces gesture-friendly Equinox feature phone

Published: October 26, 2009

Not everyone wants a full-fledged cellular computing device, and for those just looking for a basic feature phone without resorting to the dry and boring, T-mobile’s announcement today may have just the thing.

The carrier just announced its newest Sony Ericsson phone, the Equinox. Basically a rebranded T707 (as seen below in the hands of Maria Sharapova), the slick clamshell phone is geared for style-conscious fashion hounds. The quad-band 3G device features a 2.2-inch 262k-color QVGA (240 x 320 pixels) display and customizable lighting accents that can be set according to caller ID. There’s also a 3.2 MP camera with video recording, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, and FM radio.

But the real head turner with the Equinox is the gesture control: Users can silence a call or snooze the alarm by waving their hand over the phone.

You can get yours at Tmo starting October 28 for $50 with a new contract. (Hot tennis chick not included).
