Conclusion: 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 small. But the Fathom is no looker and there's no special feature or features that set it apart from Verizon's already strong smartphone lineup.
Pros: 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, GSM world roaming., Pro: World roaming, first phone with the .3 release of Windows Mobile 6.5, solid build, decent keyboard, GSM overseas capability, good speed.
Cons: Vanilla Windows Mobile is dated, dull and not terribly finger-friendly., Con: Boring, dated and stylus-centric UI. Clunky looking, lacks the exciting new operating systems or custom UIs of other smartphones on Verizon.
