The one on the left resembles that Black Berry slider what was seen on these news pages about a week back. The one one the right resembles a horse (no, not the phone).

Wonder if the Sprint one will be eco-friendly like the Reclaim.

If they do hope they do not make it as cheaply. The Samsung Reclaim although a great idea was a piece of junk!!! The form factor sucked, the call quality sucked and was poorly put together. If LG goes the environmentally friendly rout I hope they learn from Samsung's mistakes and make a good quality phone that is environmentally friendly.

The one on the left almost resembles the old Verizon txt8010 or "Blitz". Anyone else see the resemblance?

There is a market for these phones, I see the EnV's, Rumors, Rants, Exclaims and Xenons more than smartphones

LG has a tone of great phones out there and sprint seems more than happy with getting the left over trash. "Look it's the LG Reclaim"....at least they did a great job with the up coming HTC Super Sonic.

there is a serious market out there for basic text phones. so many percieved "good", "cool" phones have data on them and there are customers who just cant afford it. vzw needs more basic phones. as do other carriers so i am cool with this

I dropped Sprint, their customer service is horrendous. They take care of new customers better than ones that have been customers for over ten years.
