HP Veer 4G Review

0. phoneArena posted on 16 May 2011, 06:07

The HP Veer 4G is headed to AT&T’s lineup bringing along its cute form factor, while still paying homage to some of the Palm Pre’s legacy with its miniaturized appearance. For a smartphone, the HP Veer 4G definitely comes off as being approachable thanks to its diminutive size, but let’s hope that its size doesn’t hinder it from making it usable with most operations...

I believe many of the perceived draw-backs to this phone come as a result of HP's possible assumption that the phone's primary demographic will be either students or more likely, people who will carry around an HP Touch Pad which wirelessly tethers to the phone in your pocket.

I think this phone will be a successful attempt by HP, especially that it is running webos 2.1...if we were to compare this phone with other smart phones, the ideal comparison would be with the experia mini, which fails big time with the 1.6 android...please note that you are trading performance for size in this matter, and mostly whoever is going to look at this phone, he/she will be looking for a phone with basic smart phone functionality, let's say low end smart phone, which is actually sleek OS and looks wise...I wouldn't even think to compare what high end phones capabilities with this one, it is like comparing a car with a bicycle...just sayin!

"Basic smart phone functionality" would include being able to read email and web pages without scrolling and pinching every two seconds, I would think. Or making it through a day with no battery issues given that you have to snap on a custom cable to get it to recharge.

Feature/Dumbphones can do these things. Why not this? Just asking!

Web OS doesn't need to much system resources, so for the average user, the processor is perfect. Although unique, kind of wish they kept the same size as the Pre. As now you'll need to either go bigger (Pre 3) or smaller (Veer), but I guess change is good...
