The last time we mentioned the LG Rumour 2 was back in March when we reported that it was headed for Sprint in the US. Now, it looks like it’ll be available in Canada too, courtesy of Bell.

This successor to the LG Rumor is expected to go on retail on Bell starting June 9. The rumored pricing is $69.95 on a 3-year contract, $119.95 on a 2-year contract, and $219.95 for a single year. Purchasing it outright on a prepaid arrangment will cost a whopping $269.95.

With the current LG Rumor now costing witht the humble price tage of $29.95 on a 3-yr contract, is the additional $40 in cost reasonable? With a slightly improved keyboard and changeable back plates, we're sadly disappointed that the LG Rumour 2 doesn't have anything really outstanding to make it stand out from its predecessor. more affordable LG Rumour.

Anyway, the pricing isn’t final, so the retail release numbers could be lower than what is currently being reported. We’ll report more on this as soon as the official announcement is made.
