The LG Fathom is notable for two reasons: First, it's the first 1GHz Windows Mobile smartphone released with a slide-to-hide QWERTY keyboard. Second, it may well be the last smartphone introduced running the Windows Mobile 6 OS (Windows Phone 7 replaced Windows Mobile as Microsoft's mobile OS in November 2010).
Features include a 3.2-inch transflective touchscreen, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, support for both CDMA EV-DO and HSDPA 3G networks, a microSDHC flash memory card slot, and onboard GPS.
Because the Fathom supports GSM/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA, the smartphone can be used when traveling in Europe and Asia, even though it operates on Verizon's CDMA network in the U.S.
The retail price for the LG Fathom is $99, but the handset can be found at lower prices at the retailers below.
