Yesterday the HP Veer finally launched on AT&T, this small smartphone packs quite a punch despite costing just $99.99 as part of a two-year deal, today we thought we would remind you why you might want to check out this handset.
When checking out the HP Veer you will firstly notice its small form-factor, it measures in at 3.30 x 2.15 x 0.6 inches and weighs just 3.63 ounces, despite its small and lightweight design inside you get an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 8GB of memory and a 2.6-inch multitouch screen (320×400). As you would expect the Veer runs webOS and features a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard.
Cnet reviewed the HP Veer and found some pros and cons, the portable and lightweight design was complemented, along with the surprisingly good keyboard and decent set of features, however they were disappointed with the lack of apps (which should improved over time) and said that the small screen took some getting use to. Engadget’s review complemented the speedy OS and responsive touchscreen, however also criticized the limited apps and also suggested that camera wasn’t up to par.
