If one of Verizon’s hottest handsets for this year is the LG Voyager, then the other badass on Verizon’s list is the LG Venus. With a dual-screen slider setup – one for seeing and one for touching – the LG Venus is definitely one unique slider.
Phone Arena got their hands on some more details about the LG Venus, and they’re looking good. The LG Venus rocks the same 2 inch, 320×240 pixel QVGA upper display as the LG VX8550 Chocolate, and supplements it with a 1.49 inch, 176×240 pixel touchscreen below it. The lower-screen serves as an “interactive menu” that replaces the LG Chocolate’s scroll wheel, and serves up task-specific icons to help you navigate through the phone’s functions. And, the music-centric LG Venus rocks a 2.0 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, Speakerphone, 3G (EVDO of course), and microSDHC card slot.
We also know that the LG Venus will be taller and wider than the LG Chocolate, but it’ll be thankfully slimmer. The dual-screened slider will come in your choice of Pink or Black and comes with an 800 mAh battery, AC charger, carrying pouch, USB 2.0 cable, and VCAST Music setup cd.
If the LG Venus tickles your fancy, expect to pony up $199 (after 2-year contract and $50 rebate) for a November 8 pre-order, with shipping set for November 19.
