Messaging LG Rumor Reflex jumps on Sprint, Boost in March

Sprint and Boost Mobile are extending the Rumor line of messaging phones, with an eco-friendly bent.

LG Rumor Reflex

Sprint hasn't forgotten about its family of LG Rumor phones. In fact, it's giving it a one-two punch.

Today the carrier, along with its no-contract brand Boost Mobile, announced that they'd both carry the LG Rumor Reflex, an eco-friendly feature phone geared for those who aren't looking for a smartphone, but want something more powerful than the absolute basics.

The 3G handset follows last year's LG Rumor Touch with a 3-inch WQVGA touch-screen display and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. There's also a 2-megapixel camera with video capture, Bluetooth and GPS support, and room for 32GB in external storage.

Sprint will start ringing up the phone this Sunday, March 11, for $29.99 with a two-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate. For its part, Boost will sell its version beginning on March 29 for a no-contract price of $79.99. It comes in grey now, but Sprint will later offer it in white as well.

The phone's resource-conscious construction includes post-consumer recycled materials, low power draw when plugged in and fully charged, a carbon-free build, and packaging printed with soy ink versus petroleum-derived ink.
