Telus LG IQ

Here’s an update on the LG Monaco that we spotted just a couple of days ago.

This short video below courtesy of Mobilesyrup showcases this upcoming LG QWERTY-equipped slider phone and while it may not as comprehensive as we would like it to be, it does reveal some new details about it.

One of the more important things we noted in the brief overview of the LG IQ (as it’s referred to in the video) is that it comes with a fingerprint scanner for added security.

We don’t know how many phones have this feature, but we’re pretty certain that there aren’t that many.

They also go on to mention that it will hopefully become available this holiday season in Canada and will be an exclusive device to Telus.

Its other specs include a 3.2-inch 480x800 touchscreen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel AF camera, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, and comes loaded with the S-Class UI. The LG IQ will also be the carrier’s first Windows Mobile 6.5 device.

With this latest development, we’re guessing that a Telus official announcement won’t be far behind. We'll be waiting for the phone reviews to come in.
