Except for its name, this is basically one and the same as the LG eXpo which AT&T just recently released in the US. The LG IQ is a touchscreen QWERTY-equipped slider that runs on the new Windows Mobile 6.5 platform and also boasts of a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel autofocus camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a fingerprint scanner for added security.
