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. Now if only they would mass produce them, LG would earn some serious cred.

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).
