And you think your smartphone is powerful. Announced Monday, LG's new Expo offers a couple of "firsts" for AT&T, and we don't quite know which excites us the most. Not only does the Expo have a 1Ghz processor, but it also supports an optional pico projector for sharing videos, photos, and presentations stored on the phone.

On the outside the Expo sports a standard candy bar design with a 3.2-inch, 16 million-color touch-screen. You'll also find a QWERTY keyboard behind the sliding face. As you can imagine, the features set is rather high end, with a 5-megapixel camera with a flash, a microSD card slot, Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, a personal organizer, e-mail and messaging, and a media player.

The Expo will be available December 7 for $199 with a two-year contract (a minimum $69 per month service plan is required) and after a $100 mail-in rebate. The LG Mobile Projector, which snaps on to the back of the handset, will cost you an additional $179. According to AT&T it will be available in the coming weeks.
