LG Touch Phone Pre-orders
Verizon today posted pre-order information for the LG-made Venus and the Voyager, providing a glance at the final pricing and features for the touchscreen phones ahead of their fall launch. The Venus will use the cost advantage of a partial touchscreen interface to bring its price to $200 when bought with a two-year plan, or $369 without a contract; new in the updated details is news that the slider will include a special pink version with side trims and a keypad in the new color. The standard black version ships first on November 19th and will be followed by the pink edition on December 11th.
The Voyager will be available only in a black model with chrome trim but should compete with its Apple rival in terms of price: the finished model should be available for $299 with a two-year contract when it arrives on November 21st, exchanging its lack of internal storage for a price $100 less than that of the iPhone. A contract-free model should be available for $469.
