The LG Fathom uses a fast processor and speedy 802.11n networking with the aging Windows Mobile OS. Is this a proper ride into the sunset for Microsoft`s business system? Find out in our LG Fathom review....
Despite the imminent release of Windows Phone 7 , Microsoft is showing no sign of stopping development of Windows Mobile 6.5 devices. The latest phone to join the Windows Mobile family is the LG Fathom. The Fathom runs Windows Mobile 6.5.3 and is one......
Pros: The LG Fathom is solidly constructed with a bright display and a roomy QWERTY keyboard. It comes with Windows Mobile 6.5.3, and has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It supports CDMA and GSM networks for use worldwide.
Cons: The LG Fathom`s resistive touch-screen display is not as intuitive as we would like. We also noticed slight sluggishness with its accelerometer and image refresh rate. The LG Fathom`s bulky exterior might not be for everyone.

Additional features include a microSD media slot, GPS, a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera, as well as Wi-Fi, USB 2.0 and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity options....
Verizon has an impressive smartphone lineup-- from the capable HTC Touch Pro2 to the Moto Droid and Palm Pre Plus, if you want it, it seems they've got it (as long as it's not an iPhone you're after).

The specs are good: 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, a high resolution 800 x 480 resistive touch screen, a larg...
Pros: 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, GSM world roaming.
Cons: What's not: Vanilla Windows Mobile is dated, dull and not terribly finger-friendly.
Verdict: If the stars are in perfect alignment and you need a Verizon world phone, love plain old Windows Mobile and need a hardware keyboard, then the LG Fathom could be for you. It's fast and stable, the build is sturdy and the display is sharp, though smal...
