HP Veer stars in second commercial with focus on the Nickelodeon set
A pint sized smartphone would seem to fit perfectly in the hands of pint sized humans. So, it makes sense for HP to advertise the credit card sized HP Veer on the television channels that kids watch. Since not too many children watch CSPAN (not too many adults watch that network either, now that we think about it), HP has paid to have its Veer spots put in rotation on Nickelodeon.

Not only does the network have the ideal demographics to reach the kids, it also features a show called iCarly starring one Miranda Cosgrove. You might remember seeing the actress in "The School of Rock", but she has picked up a huge fan base thanks to her show on Nick. Miss Cosgrove is the star of the new HP Veer commercial which no doubt shows one of the directions that HP wants to go with the small, webOS flavored phone. This is the second commercial for the model. As we reported, the first ad featured boxing champ Manny Pacquiao.

Just in case your kids start politely asking for demanding the phone, the HP Veer 4G (4G thanks to HSPA+ connectivity) can be purchased from AT&T for $99.99 after a signed 2-year deal.

This ad campaign makes a lot more sense then any other for the Veer. It is a second tier, tiny freaking device. Teens will respond to it- and imagine the built in following WebOS could develop.

True but I have to admit, I loved the Manny Pacquiao "Little things can pack a punch" commercial. Maybe im bias to Manny but that guy is a beast!

Manny IS the man- carrying Boxing's banner right now. Hope some stars like Amir Khan, Timothy Bradley and the like step up their game, because Manny can't do this forever.

But this is Phone Arena, and I digress ....

Congrats HP for restoring the webOS name. Palm nearly destroyed their name with there ads (or lack there of) but HP is doing a good job of advertising the right way. webOS is a very aesthetically pleasing operating system. I wouldn't mind going back to it if the hardware is right. I could just wish they release their OS to other manufacturers. Could you imagine how sick an HTC built webOS phone with Sense would be!

leave out the Sense bloatware and you would have a fine piece of electronics.
