Let’s Get Small: HP’s Tiny WebOS Smartphone


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 all.

HP Veer (white, 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.

HP Veer Review: A Tiny Titan


It is currently available from AT&T for $99 with a new two-year service contract. For those who don't qualify for a subsidy, the price goes up to $450

Very small and light -- you'll hardly notice that it's in your pocket ; Easy to use operating system ; Small but usable keyboard ; Excellent PIM experience ; Built-in PDF viewer and Quickoffice

Very small screen can be hard to use, especially when web browsing ; Voice quality is acceptable, but not great ; Poor battery life ; Social networking experience somewhat lacking ; Navigation experience hit or miss; sometimes the phone couldn't...

Starting with a full charge, I was already down to 57% on the battery by 10:45 in the morning, even with relatively light usage. Five hours later it was down to 21% and I hadn't actually used the phone more than roughly an hour of reading email and...

HP Veer Reviewed: A Tiny WebOS Smartphone


If there's one word to describe the HP Veer, it's cute. Coming in at a surprisingly small size, the HP Veer is a cute, tiny smartphone -- a miniaturized Palm Pre. However, does the small size help or hurt the Veer in this competitive smartphone market?

Overall, the HP Veer 4G comes in at a ranking of "Below Average" mainly due to its selling point, its size. The phone's size, while cute, really doesn't offer much on the practical side of things. The screen is too small to really utilize the power of...

HP Veer


There isn't much big-name competition in this market sector except for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini and Mini Pro Android phones which offer a broadly similar product. The Veer has a small 2.6" 320 x 400 pixel touchscreen, 3.5G support with WiFi, a...

HP Veer review


It's progress from the Pre, but not without eccentricity

Easy to use interface ; Stacked cards ; Great search ; Aggregated contacts ; No memory issues

Poor camera and video ; Too small for serious use ; Hard to see screen ; Few compelling apps ; Poor battery life

In the end, the Veer is pointing in the right direction. We're not going to say "watch out Google" or "start counting your days Apple" – and we think even RIM BlackBerry has nothing to worry about – but we're also not predicting total failure. The Veer...

HP Veer hands-on test


The HP Veer is small, but its webOS software extremely capable -- like a goldfish with the brain of a shark. Its diminutive screen may not be to everyone's taste, but it's a fabulous all-round smart phone that fits in any pocket.

Very portable and light ; Has every smart phone feature you could hope for ; Surprisingly good keyboard

Small screen may take some getting used to ; Few apps

The Veer is small, but it really is mighty. It can do just about anything possible on a larger smart phone (sometimes even more, thanks to Flash playback) and its keyboard is surprisingly usable. It's only let down by the fact its screen isn't best...

HP Veer Review


"With it's slide-out QWERTY keyboard and HP webOS, the Veer could be a rival to the HTC Wildfire S and Samsung Galaxy Ace"

Unfortunately, there's no memory card slot, instead you get 8GB internal memory. Elsewhere connectivity includes HSDPA, a-GPS, A2DP and WiFi )b/g/n). The HP Veer also works as a portable WiFi hotspot, for getting up to five other devices online,...
