Two new phones were announced by LG today - the LG Lotus Elite and the LG Rumor Touch.

LG Lotus Elite

First, the LG Lotus Elite.  Sure, it's not dramatically different from the LG Lotus when it comes to design (still the box design that you either love or hate), but the LG Lotus Elite bumps it up to executive status with a 2.4-inch display (262,000 colors), support for up to 32 GB of external memory (Sprint's not leaving you hanging, though - they offer a 2 GB microSD card in the box), and support for the usual Sprint products and services.  Expect the red version to launch on January 12th for $99 with a new two-year agreement, with a black version available four days later.

LG Rumor Touch

Hot on the heels of the LG Lotus Elite, the LG Rumor Touch was announced.  Sporting a 3-inch touchscreen, 2.0-megapixel camera, EVDO Rev. 0, and a full QWERTY keyboard, it's a nice little upgrade to the existing Rumor line.  Pricing is unknown, but expect the device to land at Sprint stores sometime in the quarter.

Think we would leave you hanging when it comes to video footage?  Absolutely not!  Be sure to check out Noah's hands-on video of the LG Rumor Touch!
