Video review: LG Fathom smartphone on Verizon
      05/24/10 07:28 PM

The LG Fathom is Verizon's latest Windows Mobile Pro touchscreen smartphone. It features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. It's also the first US phone to run Windows Mobile Pro 6.5.3, which includes a few UI tweaks to make finger operation a bit easier.

The Fathom will sell for $149 with a 2 year contract after rebates and it has GSM world roaming capabilities, via a Verizon/Vodafone SIM card. Other features include a GPS that works with VZ Navigator, WiFi, Bluetooth, a 3.2 megapixel camera and microSD card slot.

The Fathom faces stiff competition in Verizon's strong line of phones, including the HTC Touch Pro2, but the phone is worth a look if you need GSM and are a fan of bone stark naked Windows Mobile.

Our written review will follow very soon.
