For St. Patrick's Day, a green 'Rumor'

LG makes phone in lucky color.


Other than to call for a cab, something tells us that new phones won't be on too many people's minds this St. Patrick's Day. But if you adhere to some strange custom by which gifts are exchanged every March 17, LG has a handset that's made to order.

The "Rumor" has been around for awhile, but SlashPhone says a special green version has been made available to Sprint customers just in time for the occasion. Other than the color, the handset seems to have the same features as earlier models, including a built-in GPS unit, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, an MP3 player, and a 1.3-megapixel camera. And don't expect the warranty to cover one that gets dropped in green beer.
