HP Veer (AT&T)


The tiny HP Veer for AT&T can't revive the fortunes of HP's webOS smartphone line.

Beautiful design. Very easy to use. Excellent voice quality.

Tiny screen. Physical keyboard may be too small for some. Few apps. Not actually 4G. Dismal magnetic headphone jack. Some Bluetooth bugs.

Review: HP Veer


When you first see the Veer's tiny keyboard, you think, "Oh man, this is never going to work." But it's actually not that bad, at...

Fantastically small form factor fits comfortably in almost any pocket. Magsafe-style charger — why isn’t this standard on all phones yet

If the box didn’t say 4G on it, I never would have guessed. Palm’s app store has a woefully dismal selection — only the biggest names are there. The battery is non-removable

HP Veer review: HP Veer


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...

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

From a pure features and apps perspective, it’s easily bested by iOS and Android devices in the same price range

HP Veer 4G (AT&T) Review


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...

Very small and light, Well-designed keyboard, Time-saving Just Type feature, Loud speaker

Headphone jack requires accessory, Screen too small, Slow "4G" speeds, Poor video camera

HP Veer 4G Review (AT&T)


Available exclusively from AT&T, the HP Veer is the first 4G phone to run webOS. It's also one of the first webOS phones to come out since HP ...

Adorable compact design, solid build quality, webOS is easy and fun to use, 4G, good keyboard, good battery life, keyboard is comfy to type on despite being cramped

Display is rather small, performance isn’t so great, camera is mediocre, no built-in headphone jack, No HD video recording

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


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...

Unlike the previous Palm and HP Pre and Pixi device updates, HP's new HP Veer is a brand new and totally different webOS smartphone from HP's former Palm division. Running webOS 2.1 , the HP Veer is a kind of different smartphone to all the other...
