AT&T has begun offering the LG eXpo, which offers a unique combination of high-end features.
It is one of the first to run Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional on a 1 GHz processor. In addition, it sets itself apart from the pack by using biometric security in the form of a built-in fingerprint scanner.
A Standard Design
Not everything about the LG eXpo is unique: like many high-end models it has a landscape-oriented sliding QWERTY keyboard. Above this is a with a 3.2-inch, WVGA touchscreen.
This quad-band GSM phone has tri-band 3G mobile broadband (7.2 Mbps HSDPA), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a GPS receiver.
It also sports a 5 megapixel camera with flash, a microSD/SDHC memory card slot, and a 1,500 mAh battery.
On top of the standard Windows Mobile user interface is LG’s S-Class 3D UI.
Overall, this smartphone is 4.5 inches by 2.2 inches by 0.7 inches, without the pico projector attached.
Pricing & Availability
The LG eXpo is now available on AT&T’s website, where it sells for $200 with a two-year service agreement and $100 rebate.
The pico projector — which will weigh in at 1.8 ozs — will be sold separately for $180. It is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
