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.

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
