LG Fathom VS750 announced by Verizon: Windows Mobile 6.5.3, 1GHz processor, QWERTY keyboard

The rumored LG Fathom VS750 has just been officially announced by Veirzon Wireless – not long after the largest US carrier has unveiled the LG Ally, its newest Android 2.1 smartphone.

LG Fathom VS750 is a Windows Mobile 6.5.3 smartphone and, like the Ally, it comes with a 3.2 inch WVGA touchscreen display, and a sliding QWERTY keyboard. Unfortunately, the Fathom’s display is resistive, so the handset will most likely not be updated to Windows Phone 7 when this comes out later in 2010.

The Fathom further features EV-DO and HSDPA connectivity (it’s a global smartphone), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, 3.2MP autofocus camera, and a 1GHz processor (not sure if it’s Snapdragon or not).

Verizon’ business sales channels will sell the LG Fathom starting May 27, while other channels should get it on June 3. The new smartphone costs $149.99 on contract (after a $100 mail-in rebate) and requires a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan and an Email and Web for Smartphone plan.
