HP has unveiled HP Veer which claims to be the smallest webOS phone (to date) with power features. Measuring approximately the size of a credit card and no thicker than a deck of cards, it offers messaging, apps access, social networks and support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 beta in the web browser. It features a full slide-out keyboard, 2.57-inch touchscreen, 8GB internal storage, Wi-Fi, integrated GPS and 5-megapixel camera.
In addition to the HP Veer, the company has also launched the HP Pre3 smartphone, designed with powerful productivity tools for mobile road warriors. It sports a 3.58-inch touchscreen and is equipped with a 1.4GHz processor, 8 or 16GB internal storage, and a full slide-out keyboard. The HP Veer claims to be ideal for heavy email and messaging needs, web browsing, enjoying multimedia and for staying in touch with business and social friends.
The HP Veer smartphone is scheduled to be available this early spring, while the HP Pre3 smartphone is scheduled to be available this summer. Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.
