It’s a big ol’ day of scoop confirmation for us. First the Nokia N900 turns out to be an exact spec-for-spec match with what we said it would be back in May. Just a few hours later, we’re seeing confirmation that Virgin Mobile is getting the LG Rumor2 – just as we said they would back in July. Yeah, the second one isn’t quite as huge as the first one – but a scoop is a scoop, right?
We didn’t have a shred of doubt in our source, but now some eagle-eye has caught it in writing. Virgin Mobile just kickstarted a Twitter contest which they’re calling “Twitter Rumors” – and as if the name weren’t enough, the prize list clearly states “Three (3) winners (one for each daily Promotional Period) will receive 1 Virgin Mobile Rumor2 handset and $50 Top-Up Card”. Thats about as concrete as things get shy of a press release, folks.
