Sprint Refreshes the LG Rumor Reflex Messaging Phone
Sprint recently added the LG Rumor Reflex S to its lineup of feature phones. The Rumor Reflex S is a slight update to last year's sideways slider that also includes a touch screen. It features a 3.0-inch WQVGA display, QWERTY keyboard, 2-megapixel camera with camcorder, GPS, and microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB of memory. The Rumor Reflex S is also ecologically friendly, and uses recycled materials in the redesigned outer shell. The device includes an energy efficient charger, and is free of harmful materials. It is available from Sprint's web site for $29.99 with a new two-year contract.

My only thought is that this will be aimed at tweens and young teens as a first phone. Since it isn't a smartphone, there isn't quite as many ways for them to get into trouble with it.
Not everyone wants or needs a smartphone.
