LG Rumor Touch is a new touchscreen cellphone by LG that was officially announced a month ago at the CES.

As announced by U.S. carriers Sprint and Nextel, the device will be available in their stores already. The price chosen for the sale, through a two-year contract with the selected company, is $79.99. For those unwilling to buy the phone through the Internet, however, will have to wait some more days: the arrival in stores of Rumor Touch, in fact, is scheduled for 4th of April.

As this phone is quite similar in its core to the regular LG Rumor, this release has a touchscreen as well as the keypad instead of only the regular keypad that LG Rumor had.
The touchscreen is suprisingly clean and responsive as well. Watch a short LG Rumor Touch review below:

A cell phone tip for users who essentially has no intention of spending a fortune in purchasing a device. We’ll see if this new product will succeed in establishing itself as the company hopes.
