LG Rumor Reflex QWERTY phone announced for Sprint and Boost Mobile
Sprint has officially unveiled a new LG Rumor handset, which will become available starting March 11.
The new phone is called LG Rumor Reflex, and is a pretty basic touchscreen device with a sliding QWERTY keyboard. Its other features include a 3 inch WQVGA display, GPS, 2MP camera, and MicroSD card support.
The Rumor Reflex is Sprint’s fifth eco-friendly device. It is Carbon-free, its “outer cover is constructed of 31% post-consumer recycled materials”, and it doesn’t use tally sensitive materials like PVC, BFR, beryllium, nickel, phthalates, and halogen. The handset’s packaging is fully recyclable, and printed with soy inks.
For the beginning, the new Rumor will be available in only one color version (titanium grey), for $29.99 on contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate. A white edition will be introduced sometime later.
In addition to being released by Sprint, the LG Rumor Reflex will be available via Boost Mobile (Sprint’s no-contract brand), too. Boost will sell the handset for $79.99 (excluding taxes), also starting March 11.
