Rumor is a candy bar phone with a focus on messaging, and in this sense that really shone in my tests. I found the headset easy and fun to use so long as he kept his strengths: Messages and more messages with voice calls and a shortage of media and Web functionality thrown in Rumor of comfortable QWERTY board, rugged design and soft finished grip, and self-rotating screen make it a solid choice for cellular phone users that the value of both text (or more) as voice calls.
