A Motorola slider phone with a heat- and touch-sensitive keypad has been unearthed by Chinese phone bloggers. The A732 comes in silver and black, includes a 3 megapixel camera, MP3 player, 64 chord polyphonic speaker and a T-flash expansion slot for extra memory. The odd, heat-sensitive keypad seems to let users scribble characters using their fingertips — writing directly to the screen is quite popular in China. The A732 also comes with something called a Shopping Helper, which is for taking photos of your fave products in stores so that you can save the price and location for future shopping excursions.
