The LG Fathom is the latest Windows Phone running Windows Mobile to hit the market. Featured on the Verizon Wireless network, the Fathom is running Windows Mobile 6.5.3. The Fathom has a quality feel to it and fits comfortably in the hand.

The feel is a touch narrower than the Touch Pro 2/Tilt2 and follows suit with the feel of the LG Expo. The side-sliding keyboard snaps into place nicely and we still have some reservations about the directional pad that sits next to the QWERTY keyboard. The d-pad does takes up a good amount of real estate but does it take too much?

The Fathom sports a 1 gigahertz processor and we'll be interested to see how it moves things along.  Over the next few days we'll take the Fathom out for a test drive and have a full review posted shortly.
