The first thing you notice when you pick up the Veer is its small size. Measuring in at 3.31 inches tall by 2.15 inches wide when closed. The extremely small design makes the phone easy to put anywhere but does have its downfalls. When talking on this phone its a little awkward and uncomferatable. The worst thing about this phone in my opinion is the small keyboard. Unless you have small fingers or are a kid it can be difficult to type a simple text message, the keys are just too small.
The Veer has a 2.6 inch screen with a 320 by 400 pixel display which is pretty small compared to other smart phones today. The Veer is running on WebOS 2.1 which a very stable and fast operating software which makes the Veer a pleasure to use most of the time.
WebOS 2.1 adds suppport for Adobe Flash Plugin 10.1 so you can now play flash games and veiw flash videos such as on youtube. The browser features other HTML 5 enhacements too. Web pages loaded fairly quickly over wi-fi and At&t’s network which is always nice. The only real problem with the web browsing that I saw was that reading text on webpages was difficult at times with such a small screen.
The camera on the Veer is defiantly not its strong point. It has one 5 mega pixel camera on the back that takes pics and videos. The pictures it takes are decent, the color in the pics is a bit lacking and they can be a bit grainy. The videos are pretty good but if you move the phone even slightly while taking a video it completly pixelizes and just looks like crap. But overall the camera is just decent.
Overall the Hp Veer is a decent smart phone that does everything that you could want a smartphone to do plus some. Its fast easy to figure out and fun to use and look at. The only problem is its screen size and keyboard are just slightly too small. WebOS 2.1 adds a lot of features to WebOS that make this phone a lot more user friendly and a joy to use. So if your looking for a phone thats small, easy to use and just fun then the HP Veer is the phone for you.
