LG Projector Phone Comes to U.S.

LG Expo Projector Phone on AT&T

Imagine a mobile phone.  Now, imagine a pico projector.  You see the two?  Now, try to put them together. 

Get the picture?  Well, LG has figured it out! The South Korean company has unveiled the LG Expo, a smartphone with an integrated optional pico projector add-on.  Yes, it may be an optional feature, but there have not any projector phone hybrids being sold in the United States anyway.  Upon its formal launch in the market, this projector phone will be the first of its kind in the US.

The LG Expo runs on the company’s spin on Windows Mobile 6.5 called S-Class user interface, which uses rotating wheels of icons, and is powered by a Qualcomm 1GHz processor.  Both features will be a first on the US smartphone market.  On its own, it features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 5-megapixel camera, a 3.2-inch screen with 800 x 480 resolution, a built-in fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, FM tuner, GPS, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, and a 1500mAh battery.  The projector add-on, which weighs about 2 ounces and has the ability to project an image up to 8 feet away, will be sold separately.

The LG Expo is set to be released in a few weeks from now for US$299.99, minus a $100 mail-in rebate along with a two-year agreement on AT&T.  The projector add-on, if you really want one, will be available soon for $179.99.
