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 beginning, there was Palm. The company created the handheld/smartphone category with the original personal digital assistants in 1996. Now, following an HP acquisition about a year ago, it's emerged with a new super-tiny model, the HP Veer.

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,...

HP Veer


The HP Veer is the latest smartphone to feature the webOS operating system. It's one of the smallest touchscreen QWERTY handsets on the market, is easy to use and offers plenty of features. The small size is both a benefit and a negative, however. The...

The HP Veer is a nice phone, but whether you'll like it or not depends almost entirely on what you're looking for in a handset. If you want a tiny, easy to use smartphone with a proper keypad, it's worth a look. If you want something with a bigger...

HP Veer webOS smartphone


Tiny smartphones have never really been hugely successful, but HP obviously thinks there is a market for them; its HP Veer smartphone weighs just 103g...

2.6in capacitive touchscreen, webOS, slide-out keyboard, cute form factor

No confirmed Australian release, no expendable memory

HP's Veer smartphone may have a tiny footprint, but it still includes all the benefits of the webOS platform, along with a physical QWERTY keyboard.

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...
