Veer 4G

 

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 fully-functional smartphone on the market when it goes on sale May 15th. In a nutshell, it's a Palm...

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

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

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.

Apps and Performance That said, a webOS handset could be perfect for anyone who wants a physical keyboard, but finds Android difficult, buggy, or confusing. Not the Veer, though. The 2.6-inch screen gives the Veer a genuinely cramped feeling; you often...

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

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

 

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.

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 Review

 

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 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...
