SPONSORED POST -- The new LG Rumor Touch is full-featured smart phone with 2 MB pixel camera and slide-out keyboard that makes surfing the web, posting to Twitter and Facebook and messaging both extremely easy and affordable.

The new "Beyond Talk" plans offer a simple pricing structure with no hidden fees and no contracts, plus they are very affordable, even for cash strapped college students. The basic plan, at $25, offers unlimited text messaging, email and web with 300 minutes of talk time.

Other nifty features include a maps feature, so you can figure out where you are if you're lost or how to get where you want to go. That camera can also function as a mini camcorder to record short movies. With easy access to Facebook, you can quickly post any media you record directly onto your profile.
