HP Veer 4G


In a world where phone screens keep getting larger, the HP Veer dares to be small. So small, in fact, that it rivals many feature phones in size, yet manages to pack in all the power of HP's newest webOS (which used to be Palm's webOS). Nearly all of...

Small size is welcomed in a market of huge phones ; Refreshing webOS interface ; QWERTY keyboard is quite usable ; Screen is more responsive than any Android device

Screen is too small for many users ; Proprietary charge port ; Audio jack requires a dongle ; Poor camera with no autofocus ; No microSD storage slot ; Screen whittles down webOS app selection ; Not a true 4G device

HP is brave to try something new, and we applaud the company’s courage, but the Veer is not a phone for everybody.

HP Veer 4G Review - Getting Us Excited for Pre 3


We touched on the Veer when it first hit our doorstep with a this just in post, and since then I've been using the device daily and trying to get an understanding for where it fits in both HP's vision for WebOS and the greater scheme of things among...

HP Veer 4G (AT&T)


The HP Veer 4G packs a lot of features into a very compact package, but it requires too many trade-offs.

The HP Veer 4G doesn't really offer anything that would tempt an iPhone or Android phone owner to buy this device. It's more like a messaging phone that can do a lot more. But even viewed in that light, the Veer 4G doesn't hit the mark. While the...

HP Veer 4G review


HP's Jon Rubenstein told us that his company wanted to veer in a new direction, and veer it surely did -- the HP Veer 4G will arguably be the smallest

Speedy webOS experience ; Tiny and cute ; Responsive, durable touchscreen

Petite frame isn't for everyone ; Sub-par camera ; Poor selection of apps

HP Veer (black, AT&T)


Back in February, Hewlett-Packard introduced three new WebOS devices in three sizes: small, medium, and large. For this review, we're looking at the smallest gadget, the HP Veer. Heading to AT&T on May 15 as the HP Veer 4G, the WebOS smartphone sports...

The HP Veer 4G has a cute, compact design. WebOS continues to shine in areas such as multitasking and universal search

The Veer 4G's tiny screen makes even the simplest tasks difficult. The smartphone uses a proprietary connector and requires a separate adapter if you want to use headphones. AT&T's "4G" data speeds are slow

The HP Veer 4G looks cute and packs in a good amount of features for the price and size, but ultimately the smartphone's compact design hinders usability and limits its appeal.

Veer 4G review


Back in February, HP (and the company's mobile team, formerly Palm) announced that it had some big — and small — plans on the horizon. A new tablet, the TouchPad. A larger, high-powered smartphone dubbed the Pre 3, and the Veer. The Veer 4G — an...

Great QWERTY keyboard ; Cute design ; New additions to webOS are solid

Performance is spotty ; Not all webOS apps are compatible ; Screen is far too small

HP reintroduces webOS in a micro form-factor... but does anyone want a phone this small?

HP Veer 4G


Picking up right where the Palm Pixi left off, the HP Veer 4G ($100 with a two-year AT&T contract as of May 5, 2011) is smaller than your average high-end smartphone. Not everybody wants--or needs--a monolithic 4.3-inch phone, though. And just because...

Better constructed than previous WebOS phones ; New multitasking features are awesome ; WebOS intuitive and pretty to look at

Display is quite small ; Keyboard is hard to use

Running WebOS 2.0, the HP Veer 4G has some incredibly useful multitasking and social networking features, but the supercompact design and tiny keyboard aren't for everybody.

HP indeed managed to turn some heads in the industry during their “Think Beyond” event back in February, where they unveiled their treasure trove of new webOS devices ranging from small, medium, and large offerings. Starting with their smallest bundle,...

HP Veer 4G Smartphone Preview


webOS, as the mobile operating system is now officially known, was first born in the labs of a revitalized Palm, at a time when the company was angling to take on iOS and Android and offer the world's next great mobile OS. The first real glimpse at...

Really small, if you're into that ; Great build quality ; Good battery life ; webOS is Excellent ; Very responsive

Too small to be a workhorse smartphone ; Low screen resolution ; Available only on AT&T ; Poor email management ; Proprietary charging port

HP Veer 4G Summary: HP's Veer 4G is an interesting device, with distinct pros and cons. For starters, this phone is only available on AT&T, which puts it at a disadvantage right away. For $99 on a 2-year contract, potential AT&T buyers have a ton of...

HP Veer 4G Review


PIC Associate Editor Kris Keilhack brings us his take on the new HP Veer 4G…My initial impression out of the box is that the Veer is impossibly tiny! I was expecting something along the lines

The Veer is a fascinating little proof-of-concept device and quite a marvelous example of what modern engineering prowess can cram into such a small form factor. It also an assuring sign that WebOS 2.x is finally moving forward after the stagnation...
