LG is re-affirming its commitment to the Windows Phone 7 movement.

Ahn Seung-kwon, LG's Mobile Business Chief, stated:

"We will boost our premium lineup, LG Electronics will concentrate on developing devices that take full advantage of the Android and Windows Mobile 7 systems for the next year or two."

He explained that 10 design-focused and specification-rich smartphones will be marketed with North America and Europe targeted for these new phones.

Asked when we will see a Windows Phone 7 device, Ahn said the schedule to market a Windows Mobile 7 in the second half of the year was underway. This would put LG in line with the "by holiday 2010" statements we've heard from others on the WP7 availability.

We've like what we have seen from LG recently with their Expo and Fathom. It will interesting to see what the company can do with Windows Phone 7.

More on the LG Fathom

We were able to dig up a few more specs on the LG Fathom that is rumored to be headed to Verizon in May.

The Windows Phone measures 4.53x2.2x.65 inches and weighs 5.36 ounces. It should have a 3.2" 480x800 resistive touch screen, 256mb RAM, 512mb ROM, microSD expansion card slot, and 3.5mm headphone jack. The Fathom is fitted with a side-sliding keyboard and 3.2 megapixel camera.  There is no indication on processor or battery size.

Keep in mind that the image provided by phonearena.com is likely an early prototype and the finished product (complete with Verizon branding)may have a slightly different appearance.

LG Fathom headed to Verizon

May should be a busy month for the folks over at Verizon Wireless. The Kin, Microsoft's Windows Phone, is due to launch and now we are finding out that LG is planning to launch a new Windows Phone, the Fathom.

The Fathom is a bit of a phantom right now and what we know is very limited.  We know the Fathom will be running Windows Mobile 6.5 and have a physical keyboard but anything beyond that is a bit of a mystery.

As more becomes available on this new Windows Phone, we'll pass it on.
