I was able to get my hands on the new LG eXpo, which has some pretty humorous commercials floating around the ‘Net. It’s biggest selling point is the “Pico Projector” that you can buy for it.

That’s right: it’s the first phone in existence that has a projector you can attach to it. Why would anyone need a tiny projector that projects a screen smaller than 4 feet? I don’t know. If you find out, please tell me.

On the whole, I found the phone to be generally unusable due to the lousy touch screen on the thing. The keyboard is decent, but even the phone’s fast processor is not fast enough to keep up with the sluggish Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system.

I recommend using you Christmas money to get something better, like an iPhone 3GS or a Verizon Droid.
