In the pages to come, we take a look at the HP Veer 4G and by extension webOS 2.1.2 (the OS build loaded on this phone). webOS still has a lot to prove in the smartphone world, as it currently battles BlackBerry OS, Windows Phone, MeeGo and a handful of other small competitors for that coveted third-place spot behind iOS and Android. Priced at just $99.99 on a 2-year AT&T contract (or $49.99 if purchased through Amazon Wireless), it's certainly one of the cheaper 4G smartphones on the market, and when paired with AT&T's $15/month low-end smartphone data package, it has the makings for a...

HP 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 webOS came at CES 2009, with the introduction of the Palm Pre. Unfortunately, some would say Palm took too long to ship what ultimately turned out to be a subpar piece of hardware, and webOS fell to the wayside while Android leapfrogged iOS and Apple also continued to innovate. Then, amidst the turmoil, came more turmoil. HP's... Read more...

One of the negative points of Palm's Pre and Pre 2 was the relatively small screen size and low resolution. HP fixed that when they introduced the Pre 3 today, but if you're one of those who just love small phones, the Veer keeps the tiny tradition in tact. The HP Veer is the smallest HP webOS phone offered, and you could argue that it's a replacement for the Pixi. HP introduced a Small, Medium and Large device today, with the Veer taking S, the Pre 3 taking M, and the TouchPad taking L. This phone is actually the size of a credit card, while being no thicker than a deck of cars. Still, there's... Read more...
