Verizon Wireless announced the release of two new mobile phones today. It seems that the holiday season brings out the best in companies. The Voyager and Venus will be on sale this week. Both hand sets will be sold in all Verizon Wireless Communications Stores. The Venus goes on sale today and the Voyager will make the display case on November 21.
“These phones offer customers some of the most exciting technology available today,” said Mike Lanman, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. “The combination of touch and tactile keypads that are features on both devices give customers a winning combination that is rare in the market today. We are excited about these phones and expect them to be in high demand during the holidays.”
Both handsets include a 2.0 megapixel camera, VZ Navigator capability, a microSD memory slot that can support up to 8 GB of additional memory, and dual screen displays. The Voyager has a large external touch-screen while the Venus has dual external screens, with the bottom screen using touch technology. Both units also offer access to V CAST Video. This service provides news, sports and entertainment clips along with 3D games. V CAST Music can be used by the phones to access over 2.4 million songs that can be downloaded to the handsets’ memory.
“The Venus and the Voyager by LG are two groundbreaking handsets with the advanced features and style that LG Mobile Phones is known for,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, vice president of product strategy and marketing for LG Electronics MobileComm USA, Inc. “These distinctive devices give consumers the choice they want in their mobile phone experience.”
The Venus is available for $199.99 after $50 rebate and two-year customer agreement; the Voyager will be available for $299.99 after $50 rebate and two- year customer agreement.
