It’s been a big week of sequels for LG at CES 2010; first they launch the LG Lotus’ slightly-upgraded sibling, the Lotus Elite, and now they’re following up the LG Rumor with the finger-centric Rumor Touch.

The LG Rumor Touch is a feature phone, but it’s probably about as fancy as feature phones come before you start wondering why the didn’t pack a bigger, badder operating system on it. It’s got a 3″ WQVGA touchscreen, 2 megapixel camera, support for up to 32GB of storage via microSD, and support for Sprint 3G. In terms of availability, LG is only going as far as to say it’s coming “in the first quarter”, and they won’t say a word about pricing. The past 2 Rumors have launched at $49.99 – but considering the touchscreen upgrade and the $99 price tag on the similar Lotus Elite, I’d wager that this thing will come in somewhere between $100 and $150 at launch.
