Telus Slides Home with LG Touch Venus

Telus Slides Home with LG Touch Venus


The LG Venus has been available through Verizon Wireless for a little while now, but we all know that Canadian service providers tend to lag a little behind. Rogers isn’t the only Canadian telecom to announce a new LG cell phone today, because Telus Mobility is proud to say that they’ll have the LG Venus.

While it takes on a similar slider form factor as the LG Chocolate, the the LG Venus replaces the conventional five way navigator with a dynamic touchscreen that sits underneath the main screen. This adapts to the situation, showing music controls when you’re bobbing your head or camera controls when you’re snapping a pic. The Venus will ship in both black and pink, and it can take advantage of all the Telus SPARK services like TV and radio.

No word on pricing, but “LG is excited to launch our LG VENUS Touch phone in Canada with TELUS. Canadians looking for style and state-of-the-art technology will love this phone.”
