    ... so if you like things like giant internet flame wars and ignorant statements like "looks like a Blackberry Torch ripoff," you might want to pay AT&T's Facebook page a visit and get your boxing gloves on. The comment thread is on the Veer post they released today on their Wall.

    Torch ripoff. People are morons.

    Ah, that is the measure of what a phone can do...what it reminds you of when you look at it. No need to actually try it out, look into the way it operates, how it feels, no sense wasting your time with any of that...

    I'm just a soul who's intentions are good...oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!

    I just took a look at the page ..... I was kinda disappointed. No1 said anything that held any weight. Just a bunch of idiots with a Facebook page.


    My Pre Does EXACTLY What I Need It To Do, And Thats Why I Have A webOS Relationship.

    These "idiots" are the voice of the public. No one KNOWS about webos. No one KNOWS about palm/hp phones. All my friends give me confused looks when I tell them my phone runs webos. Its not their fault they dont know, its palm/hp for not marketing to people.

    Most ppl dont want to have to spend time on forums and articles to find out about phones. They'd rather see it on TV in ads. Enthusiasts dont seem to understand this.....

    thats right.

    HP/PALM really should step up the marketing through public airwaves.

    That's a shame. I hope AT&T promotes it as much as they did the torch. It should outsell the torch if they do.

    If hp made a phone like samsung galaxy 2, it doesn't matter what's running inside, people will buy it. What did you expect from phom like Veer.

    You are correct. However, I don't think you'll see the Veer in thousands of hands without marketing. It all starts with some buzz. How many people even know this phone is going on sale next week?

    Nope. Veer doesn't look sexy and too small. Hp has to redesign the webos phone, stay the hell out of pre design.
    Kin advertised hell out, guess what? Nobody bought it.

    That's because the Kin wasn't a full smartphone.

    I'm assuming the Veer is a great phone (haven't touched it). I love my Pre+. My wife loves here Pixi+ webOS is a great OS.

    The Kin was some sort of hybrid smart/dumb phone.

    I'm not surprised that people are actually surprised at this response.

    I do not care about this response. I care about the underwellming launch (So far), the make it right promise, Sprint, and the fact that the ball has started to roll. The wrist watch the veer, the pre3 and the Touchpad are all about to drop and lets hope that HP Has another 3 for factors in the tubes.

    I'm 48 years old. I have a wife and son (just graduated *** laude! Go Ben!), and many peers not only in IT but in my sideline of music.

    (rofl - forum software asterisks out the latin word for "with")

    Every single person I've given the elevator speech and demo for webOS to has said they want one, and that they'd never heard of it. My wife constantly quizzes me on why the Veer won't be carried on Sprint (sorry, dear, a CDMA radio is BIG!).

    Had a great teachable moment at work today. I had a cube-zombie hanging around (the guys that don't ever seem to have any work to do so they hang out in your cube while you're trying to get something done). I was browsing Fark on my Pre-, got an email notification, opened the message and glanced at it (hey, these guys are hiring.. are you looking for a new gig?). My wife called, I talked to her for a sec, then reseated the Pre, finished reading the recruiter's email, and went back to Fark to show him the link I'd intended to show him in the first place.

    After a few minutes, he asked "is that like a Mac or something"?

    And then I spread the gospel, and I expect he's browsing PreCentral tonight.
