LG Venus Pink at Verizon

Verizon on Tuesday afternoon help round off its 2007 phone releases with the LG Venus Pink. The device replaces the all-black design of the original with a sparkle-textured pink sliding keypad and side trim. This makes the device more conspicuous for fashion-conscious women than the already high-visibility phone, which relies on a unique split view with a touchscreen replacing the normal buttons and directional pad of a conventional slider phone.

The pink-tinted handset is otherwise very similar and touts a 2-megapixel camera, assisted GPS support, and microSD storage for up to 8GB of media either sideloaded from a computer or downloaded directly through Verizon's online music store. The carrier lists the freshened Venus as available today for $200 after factoring the cost of a two-year service plan.
