Wireless cell phone service provider Cingular has introduced the Slvr, a new cell phone from Motorola equipped with Apple’s iTunes software. The Slvr is available to new subscribers for $199.99, with a 2 year contract.

A Cingular exclusive, the Slvr is the successor to the Rokr, Motorola’s first iTunes-compatible phone. Billed as “ultra sleek,” the “candy bar”-style Slvr is considerably thinner than the chunky Rokr and is even thinner than the popular Motorola Razr model, according to Cingular. It also uses a metallic backlit keypad that is evocative of the Razr.

Also called the L7 by Motorola, the Slvr measures 11.5 mm thick and has a 176 x 220 TFT LCD display capable of displaying 262,000 colors. A VGA camera features 4x zoom, video capture and playback as well. The phone is Bluetooth-compatible and works with headsets and car kits.

Like the Rokr, the Slvr syncs its music content with a Mac or PC equipped with iTunes through USB. It comes with a matching stereo headset.

Like the Rokr, the Slvr is limited to 100 songs.
