    What kinda phone name is the veer?

    I'm a huge supporter of webos, though my support is constantly being challenged,esp of late.

    The veer for a phone name is just terrible. I think it's even worse than the pixi.

    Good thing it wasn't the first webos phone out, otherwise we'd have this favorite website of ours would be called veercentral.

    Oh boy

    Actually it does make sense, it's egocentric. Apple was a genius on that.

    probably i ll just call it pre-veer for myself. also "veer" in german is (almost) exactly the same sound as "4" so it is ... *evil voice here* the secret true flag ship ...

    Veer is tons better than Pixi. I know several guys who love the Pixi form factor but wont carry it because they don't want to carry something called a Pixi. Palm cut their market by at least 1/3 when the named the Pixi.

    Better then Pixi IMO. At least dudes will look at this phone now.
    Try diplomacy first. You can always conquer them later...

    www.webos-internals.org, read it, use it, love it, and donate to it.....

    Just remember - when you pronounce the name the first 'e' is silent.

    I beleive it originally started with the iMac, the "I" was for internet. This was at a time when people were looking to get connected. They just carried it over to other devices.
    Thus you have the iPhone, internet phone. Apple invented the internet.
