HP Veer, first hands-on! (updated with video!) -- Engadget


Engadget just posted video of the Veer. I have to admit it looks pretty sweet! Hope HP prices this little device around $100 or less...

<deleted by moderator> that thing is fast/responsive... Wonder what the battery life will be? If I can get a day out of it, I'll gladly take it. 2.6 aint much.. But I think it might be worth it.

Definitely faster than my Pre minus. Notice nobody is trying to type on that thing. I still wonder if the target market could actually type on it.

The demo the HP rep gave to P|C Derek showed her typing on it. She seemed to do just fine.

Totally agree with the device being $100 dollars $150 max. Looks like the size off the LG remarq for sprint. Besides that I see this product being geared toward cuteness, for woman. Children to enjoying very powerful features for games and little kids and teenage girls love little cute phones. Besides that it is a pretty nice phone and a lot of people wouldn't mind getting one with such nice multitask features along with hopefully a great price.

I think it needs to be 150-200 UNLOCKED, and OFF contract.

just like the lg optimus v.

People expecting $100 or $150 off contract are nuts. I bet it's $99 on a new contract. What it needs is a cheaper data plan than standard smart phones.

1) that's rude!

2) I never said I expected it, I said it "needs to be" In order to compete with the optimus V. which sells for 150.

200 is very doable, I doubt the phone costs much more than a 100 to create.

It's not rude. The phone is has a faster processor, glass screen and a good gpu. It is in a different class than the optimus. Both are entry level, but one has 512mb of Ram.

Entry level phones can be priced at $200 on a contract, what they need are cheaper data plans. That's what kills entry level devices.

Holy ****, this little phone is really fast. I believed it would be like my oc pixi, but is is a lot faster!

Makes me wonder if there will be a superfast pixi2 with same screen. Would buy it in an instant. I would love to see a picutre of a pixi next to a veer. Is the keyboard smaller as the pixi's?

I was pleasantly surprised by the Veer's speed as well. Just imagine how fast the Pre3 with 1.4 GHz must be! It has nearly twice the clock rate!

Fast does not trump usability. I don't believe many will find that tiny keyboard very usable. Typing may be possible, but I doubt fast.

How good is your eyesight? On my 27" monitor the veer was pictured much larger than it is. The print on the screen was very small. In real life, I don't think many will be comfortable with that.

Cute? Tons! Fast? It certainly demos well. Usable? Yet to be seen, but doubtful. I look forward to the first reviews. I hope I am proven wrong.

The Veer's screen is pretty much the same size as the Pixi which is very readable to me (my wife has one). If the keyboard is the same size, it's definitely usable but a little cramped for me. It's perfect for my wife though.

Very excited about this device. If it connected with the TouchPad like the Pre3 does, this would be my main device for daily use. Just hope it comes out sooner rather than later so I can start playing with it.

Of course, I'm getting a Pre2 next week (already shipped). Should I really indulge in getting this device with the TouchPaid/Pre3 Combo coming out this summer? *shrug*

Tough decisions.

Oh, and I could see paying $200 for this.

doubt it. $199 to start is my bet and on contract. Pre3 will be $299 at least. HP doesn't see this stuff as cheap or starter type equipment.

While these new devices will play in the consumer space, HP will push hard in the business space
