There is apparently a rumor that an LG Rumor 2 will replace the LG Rumor (say that three times fast). The original LG Rumor came out a year before the Samsung Rant, which has a similar design except the keyboard slides out the opposite side. We gave it high praise for its easy-to-use keyboard, though it had a pretty mediocre feature set.
Now it appears the Rumor might have a sequel, at least according to this post on the Sprint Users forum. We definitely hope for a better camera and EV-DO with the new version, but it might maintain its lower-tier status as a cheaper texting phone. Whichever it is, we look forward to seeing if this turns out to be a reality. Maybe just in time for the CTIA show this spring?
