Default Engadget Unboxes and Reviews LG eXpo

"We're not sure we'd be able to find a piece of hardware that made us adore Windows Mobile 6.5 the same way we adore puppies or a hot cup of cocoa, but that doesn't mean that the usual suspects -- HTC, Samsung, LG, and the like -- aren't producing some magnificent hardware on which to run it. Today we've had a chance to give LG's new eXpo for AT&T a quick once-over, and on paper, this is a hell of a handset: 5 megapixel autofocus cam, a fingerprint sensor that doubles as a d-pad, Snapdragon power, a WVGA display, full QWERTY, and most notably, support for an optional microprojector add-on"

The LG eXpo is hitting the news big as of late, and Engadget has their two cents out if you're interested and want to take a look at both some nice pictures of the device and some interesting reading!

After using the HD2 for a while, it's hard to love the LG eXpo. The touch screen on it is pretty awful...

I presume you're referring to the sensitivity?

Someone posted a suggestion in another forum I read that the sensitivity is set during the alignment process -- the harder you press, the lower the sensitivity. (There was a similar suggestion for the HTC Fuze/Touch Pro.) This person suggested using the end of a paper clip and a very light touch during the alignment process to maximize the resulting sensitivity.

I don't know if that actually works or not. Presumably there is a value in the registry somewhere that can be set directly to control the sensitivity (there is on HTC devices), but no one had found which one it is, last I knew.
