Looks cool.. I wonder...
because the menus are different from the sprint rumor2 than the VM rumor2, and this one is going to be a touchscreen...
i hope the they keep the hello UI and other neat features on this
also i like that Rumor touch from virgin will be black/chrome instead of the others it looks nice
hopefully they'll launch different colors too, because for the rumor2 it only came out in one color
