LG Special Phones for the Visually Challenged; Gifted to 2000 People
News from GizmoCrave:

The world has a lot of people who are like us, but are not lucky enough to have everything that we do.  And yet, we don’t do anything to help them or rather it’s more like, we don’t know how to help them.

LG, the Korean company decided to act upon this and award the unfortunate people who are visually challenged with specially-designed phones.

The phones do not have anything special, they do not come with the latest Snapdragon S4 chipset or anything of that sort, but what it does come with is a completely modified interface which can be used by voice commands.

LG is giving away 2000 of these specially designed phones away freely as part of their donation program.

The device, named LG-LU2700S, allows the visually impaired to listen to music, take a picture, call or do other functions by simply saying it to their phones.

What’s more is that even the manual that comes along with the phone  is in written in Braille so that the blind could read and understand what it says.

LG gives away 2000 specially modified phones for the blind
News from Engadget:

Skipping on the LTE, HD IPS screen or dual-processor is usually not a recipe that will land your phone on the pages of Engadget. But, these LG-LU2700Ss are not just any unspectacular flip phone. The handset has been specially modified for use by the blind and visually impaired. The manual is printed in braille and, rather than require the constant mashing of buttons, the phone is controlled primarily through voice commands. 2,000 of the devices were given away as part of the company’s donation program.

LG Rumor 2 (Virgin Mobile)
News from PC Magazine:

The $ 89.99 LG Rumor 2 is Virgin Mobile’s version of the original LG Cosmos we reviewed on Verizon Wireless (3 stars). It’s a basic feature phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that should appeal to avid texters.

The Rumor 2 measures 4.4 by 2.1 by .7 inches (HWD), so it’s on the thick side, but it only weighs 4.2 ounces. The 2-inch display features 320-by-240 pixel resolution, which is standard for the class. The phone slides open to reveal a four-row QWERTY keyboard, with nicely spaced keys that should make this a good phone for typing long messages.

The Rumor 2 is a decent choice if you aren’t ready for a smartphone, though you’ll get a lot more bang for not much more buck with the LG Optimus V ($ 129.99, 4 stars).
