Motorola RUSH 2 for Verizon is the A455, looking better than before

Chris Ziegler

Of those leaked Verizon-bound Motorolas we saw back in December, the RUSH 2 wasn't one of the devices that stood out -- blame the cartoonish keyboard and color scheme, if you like -- but the little texter's all growed up now, and she's looking a lot better for it. Apparently rechristened the A455, Mobile-review has also discovered that it'll have a touchscreen, EV-DO, Bluetooth, GPS, and a camera (imagine that). Unfortunately, the user interface looks just about as boring as anything Verizon has allowed into its lineup in the past couple years, but hey, as long as it's got a decent keyboard and a dirt-cheap sticker, it'll sell. Last we'd heard, this would be out in the first quarter of 2009, so we'll see if this somehow manages to materialize before the month's out.
