While the AT&T LG eXpo made an initial splash, mostly before it even came out, it sort of fizzled in the U.S. market, partially related to limited availability, partially limited to being overwhelmed by HTC's dominance.

Still, it's nice to know that LG hasn't forgotten about its small but dedicated user base, as they just released a new ROM update for the eXpo--v10G. While it does not deliver Windows Mobile 6.5.3 or any radical changes, it does offer some bug fixes, enhancements and other little bits noted by users:

  • Read/Receipt message delivery
  • Backup PIN usage when using the fingerprint scanner to secure the device
  • Removed MMS app; replaced w/ stock WM version
  • Better signal strength
  • Fingerprint scanner works better

People are reporting that overall it's a solid update, keeping the device running well on that 1GHz CPU. The LG Idles interface remains roughly the same and the OS doesn't seemed to have changed version numbers, but hey, at least it fixed a few things without creating any new problems, right?

Bonus: If you want to go the custom ROM style, check out Dark's 'Dragonstorm' ROM v4 based on the v10g core.
