LG Venus or LG VX8800 is a 2007 slider/touch screen cell phone by LG Electronics. It is a part of the VX series, which is sold exclusively to Verizon Wireless in the United States. The phone has a sliding design and features a touch screen for the bottom third of the screen. It features a 2-megapixel camera. Pre-ordering began on November 8, 2007, and the release date for Verizon Wireless was November 19, 2007. The phone features a music player, Bluetooth capabilities, up to an 8 GB microSD slot, video messaging, speaker phone and voice command, among other features. It is considered by many to be a spiritual successor to LG's popular "Chocolate" line, which includes the previous VX8500 and VX8550 handsets.
On March 27, 2008, Telus Mobility announced that the LG VENUS would be made available through their stores and retail partners around mid-April.
