The LG eXpo is a Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional handset that looks like a beefed up version of the Monaco and also packs in a pico projector for your on the go PowerPoint Mobile presentation needs. For casual consumers, you can also project pictures and movies onto the wall.
The LG eXpo will have a full QWERTY keyboard, 1 GHz processor, and a bulge that will house the projector made by Texas Instruments. The device is expected for AT&T in the US on December 7th for the asking price of $200 after a two-year contract and rebates.
Update: LG has setup a webpage on their site for the LG eXpo, which also goes by the name LG GW820. The projector can show images up to 40-inches and the company is boasting the eXpo as the first smartphone to integrate a projector for the US market; the projector part is sold as a separate add-on, according to Brandon, who spotted the LG site information.

The projector part will be available as an additional $180 add-on on top of the phone’s $200 asking price on contract.
