LG Handset Praised For Messaging Functionality

A new mobile phone from LG has been highlighted as ideal for those looking for a compact phone that has messaging in mind.

The South Korean manufacturer has launched a number of multimedia-focused devices of late - such as the Arena - but the MobileBurn website notes the Rumor2 takes a different approach.

In a review for the online portal, Ricky Cadden says the handset is somewhat lacking when it comes to video capture and other features, but for those who like to send SMS and email messages it could be a worthwhile purchase.

The simple numeric keypad and "comfortable" qwerty keyboard are noted as particularly well designed and an added "smiley button" also makes a welcome appearance.

He concludes: "The Rumor2 is built well, with a solid slide mechanism and sturdy materials," before giving the phone "a recommended rating."

The LG Arena is available on T Mobile in an exclusive black version.
