Smartphone to get Snapdragon processor, WinMo 6.5
LG's IQ smartphone, also known as the Monaco, has surfaced with a branding badge for the Canadian carrier Telus, according to images posted by the Mobile Ninjas. The handset reportedly features a Snapdragon processor, WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. An optical trackpad is present to help users navigate the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, which appears to be paired with LG's S-class interface.
Pricing and launch information for the IQ have yet to be announced. Unconfirmed rumors suggest the device may also be heading to AT&T in the US. [via WMPowerusers]
