The LG IQ may lack the capacitive screen of the HTC HD2, but there’s another reason it’s managed to get us excited about Windows Mobile for once: it’s got a pocket projector bolted on the back for throwing up flicks onto a nearby wall!

The LG IQ, formerly codenamed Monaco, packs an impressive spec sheet, including a sliding landscape QWERTY keyboard, superfast Snapdragon 1GHz processor, five megapixel camera and sharp WVGA display. But as you can see in this hands-on video, stuck on the back of the LG IQ is a pocket projector, similar to the one we’ve seen built into the Samsung Show.

Like the Nikon S1000PJ‘s projector, the LG IQ’s image chucker leaves a lot to be desired but the handler says it’ll only cost $150 (£90), and let’s face it, it has more practical use than a solar powered back cover, which LG also sells.

There’s no word on when the LG IQ is out in the UK – its first stop on tour is network Telus in Canada – but have a look at the video and check it out for yourself. Is this the future of multimedia on mobile?
