    It's too soon. We'll know in about a month though which might make predicting HP a bit easier.

    HP/Palm is Slow. They better realize it sooner.

    To me it looks like the Touchpad is the main product. I doubt Pre3 will be ready by June end. HP wants to spend their money on the tablets first followed by phones.

    If that was true, they really would have delayed the Veer's launch.

    They need something to show the TTS (Touch To Share). Veer can do it. Plus since it is GSM phone , they can sell it in other parts of the world.

    this phone will be forgotten in about a month if not sooner. Until hp gets developers and apps they can go no where. I think the time spent to get the release of the veer would have been better spent getting to release the 3 earlier. I love my pre plus but in september if apps dont improve ie having normal apps (espn,sirius,etc.) forget about it. I want a foot in my mouth and be wrong so I buy the Pre 3 but I have a feeling thats not going to be the case.

    I have this theory that HP is actually making a push to be relevant in markets outside the US more so than in the US. If we take a look at all the recent events that are webOS related, the majority of them are in those other markets. The latest celebrity deal is also for a celebrity that's well known in non-US markets.

    The reason I think that HP is doing this: the US market is pretty much a duopoly right now between iOS and Android. HP probably feels like they have a better chance of succeeding by targeting those other markets first and build enough of a momentum and base, before they can be taken seriously "at home."

    I have my doubts, but then again I'm not a phone manufacturer.
    The Veer is 3.31" x 2.15" x 0.59" = 4.20 in³

    The iPhone 4 is 4.50" x 2.31" x 0.37" = 3.85 in³

    There is a big market for small phones.

    LOL. Yeah, there is big market for a small phone, only if that phone has a piece of fruit on it.

    The iPhone is not a good example as to if there is a big market for small smart phones. There's no way to filter out the people who are genuinely going for a small phone regardless of maker and the Apple faithful. Would it be fare to say the Appple faithful vastly outnumber the webos faithful? Of course I have no way to prove either.

    Bad comparison.
