LG Fathom – Windows Mobile Phone

Verizon and LG have announced their next Windows Mobile phone, the Fathom. It has a 3.2″ touch screen, 1 GHz processor, full qwerty slide-out keyboard, and Windows Mobile 6.5.3. It will be available from 3rd party sellers beginning May 27th and from Verizon beginning June 3 for $149.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. I am a former Windows Mobile user/fan who now uses Android and I don’t plan on looking back; so I have to ask, is anyone looking forward to this phone?

Anyway check out some pictures and the key features from the press release below.
