Up until now two major things have evaded AT&T: an Android phone and Snapdragon.If you're unfamiliar with the second, Snapdragon is a new mobile CPUthat can be clocked as high as 1GHz, and the phones based on that CPUare understandably quick. Starting this week, AT&T will at least beable to say that it stocks a 1GHz smartphone (that sounds funny just saying it!), as LG Mobile's eXpo has made its debut on the US carrier.

Thephone is a real workhorse, and it sports a few really unique features.For starters, it supports AT&T's growing 7.2Mbps HSPA network,which is the fastest form of 3G on AT&T. Moreover, it's the firstphone in America to support an optional integrated pico projector.That's right, this phone is available with a snap-on projector! In caseyou've missed out on the first wave of pico projectors, you can now getyour next phone and your first pico projector in one fell swoop.

The G Mobile Projector snaps onto the back of the device and allows users to share presentations, slideshows and even online videos straight from their mobile phone, and while it does add some bulk, it weighs just 1.8oz. and is extremely mobile considering that it's a full-fledged projector. It can project images as far as eight feet.

Needmore technology? This phone also supports fingerprint recognition fromAuthenTec, and the Smart Sensor complements the touchscreen userinterface of the eXpo by also providing precise cursor control for textediting, 4-way menu navigation, and AuthenTec’s unique turbo-scrollfeature for rapid browsing of long emails, contact lists or websites.The LG eXpo is powered by Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, and itboasts a 3.2" touch screen, a QWERTY keypad, 5.0MP camera, GPS and a microSDslot. It'll be available to enterprise customers and for purchaseonline at for $199.99 after mail-in rebate startingon December 7th.
