LG Rumor2 officially announced by Sprint; priced at $50 on contract

We knew the second-generation LG Rumor was coming to Sprint, and all we needed was an official announcement – which obviously came today.  

The new phone is called LG Rumor2 and Sprint will sell it for $49.99, after a $50 mail-in rebate and the signing of a new 2-yr contract agreement. 

Like the old Rumor, Rumor2 is a Sprint-exclusive device (in the US, at least). 

The full QWERTY keyboard featured by Rumor2 has four key rows, thus it’s probably more user-friendly than the keyboard the original phone sports.
