Motorola Mobility Unveils MOTOACTV

I don’t get it. The Motoactv is an MP3 player basically,  it looks pretty much like an iPod nano, and I think it can do everything it can. Apparently it can track number of calories burned, miles covered, personal records and fitness facts. You can get it in 8gb or 16gb to hold your music and it has an FM radio.  Yeah I still don’t get it.
