AT&T intros the LG eXpo (Monaco) – the first US phone with a 1GHz processor
AT&T has officially announced the LG eXpo (also known as LG Monaco and LG IQ), presented as the United States’ first phone to feature a 1GHz CPU, as well as the first to have an optional integrated pico projector.
The eXpo is actually not a simple phone, but a smartphone that runs Windows Mobile 6.5 and features a WVGA touchscreen display, full QWERTY keyboard, HSDPA, GPS, 5MP camera and MicroSD card support.
Another nice feature of the eXpo is AuthenTec’s “Smart Sensor” fingerprint recognition, “which delivers a new level of added smart and personal security unlike any other mobile phone in the market.”
LG eXpo is the second LG handset announced by AT&T this month (after the Shine II) and it will be available starting December 7. The smartphone is priced at $199.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement and after a $100 mail-in rebate (a $69.99 plan is required). The optional LG Mobile Projector should be available shortly after, for $179.99.
