HP Veer Launch Party Event scheduled for May 2nd
The smallest webOS device, the HP Veer, will be the guest of honor at a Launch Party in Anaheim on May 2nd. As we reported, the Veer is about the size of a credit card with a 2.6 inch display coming in with a resolution of 320 x 400 pixels. The Qualcomm 7230 Snapdragon, clocked at 800MHz, will power the handset which is so small that both a headphone jack and a micro-USB port will not fit on the model.

Despite its munchkin-esque stature, the Veer is equipped with a slide-out portrait QWERTY keyboard while a 5MP camera is on the back. The phone offers 8GB of storage along with 512MB of RAM. Powering the device will be webOS 2.2.

While the original introduction of the HP Veer failed to mention a specific carrier that the handset will be on, one person signing up for the Launch Event was told to bring an AT&T or Best Buy business card. This would seem to imply that the HP Veer will be released on AT&T, and with this party coming the first week of May, the actual launch shouldn't be too long afterward.

When will people learn.... small touch screen devices aren't going to happen. This is going to be a major failure for them... my god I just can't look at it it's so horrible.

There's a huge female audience that will love the size. However this probably means the Pre 3 will also go to ATThrottle. So that's the third strike you're out for me getting the Pre 3: single core processor, 3G and ATT.

Nice. Atleast their following the phone size rules unlike HTC xD they look like house phones.

This phone doesn't seem to bad, just a pumped up pixi, and I personally love my pixi, so this doesn't seem bad, yea it is small but very easy to use.

HP can ease into the water with a device that sells to a different audience. So long as they do not think this will be a monster hit, it is good entry level type-phone that speaks to the audience that doesn't want a 4" or bigger screen. HP is going to have to open up in the next year and compete on that level, but this is a safe, inexpensive, easy to market first device for them.
