Canadians Getting First Touchscreen Phone

Telus is bringing the first touchscreen cell phone to Canadian wireless subscribers – and it’s not the iPhone. Nope. The honor belongs to LG and its Venus handset, which is the first of several LG Touch devices Telus plans to offer this year.

A black and silver Venus will be available mid-April and a pink version will hit the market later in the spring.
