Yes, we've finally reviewed the LG Venus, the unique dual-screen slider handset from Verizon Wireless. If you recall, this phone has two screens--the upper one is a typical QVGA display, while the lower is a touch screen with onscreen navigation controls. The great thing about the touch screen is that the navigation layout changes depending on what's needed. For example, when the music player is activated, music player controls are revealed, and when the camera is activated, the camera's controls are revealed. Sure it's a little gimmicky, but it works great all the same. Features are pretty great, too, with a 2-megapixel camera, EV-DO support, a music player, stereo Bluetooth, plus access to Verizon's V Cast offerings. Read our review for the full scoop, plus check out our slideshow for a closer look at the super stylish LG Venus.
