    it's smaller than my 1995 top of the line weather and news alert beeper I use to have...i remember people bowing at my knees like I invented fire...the Veer reminds me of that time....it lacks nothing for it's size....my custom pre- felt dated after I walked out of the AT&T store...the Veer is a chick magnet...smaller might just be better as long as it's powerful???

    I just dropped by an AT&T store... Never really been tempted from Sprint, but I likes it... I likes it a lot.

    Just seeing 2GB for $30 hurts me.

    I found the pixi keyboard was much better. I got my friend a pixi and she loves it.
    She tried out the Veer and loved everything except the keyboard. I guess it just takes time to adjust.

    That's one of the reasons why I haven't activated my unlocked Pre2 with AT&T(&T)...

    Sorry, falcon, sometimes the filter on my brain kicks in FAR too late!

    ya, The first thing I thought when I saw he knew how awesome the Veer was, "Yes! There's actually a smart person here!" Needless to say, I am probably going to get my Pre3 via BestBuy.

    I just walked into a AT&T store today on some spare time to check the little Veer out. All I have to say is wow. What a AMAZINGLY well built and good looking phone. Slider was silky smooth and solid. All the chrome buttons volume, ringer switch, power button all had nice tactile feel. The keyboard did feel noticeable smaller than the Pre but I found it quite easy to type on still even with all the AT&T security crap attached to the phone. webOS was silky smooth and a joy to use. Sadly the phone was only on Edge and a rep at the store blamed that on the sim card inside the phone. The rep though had nothing but good things to say about this phone. Although he does not recall anyone selling one yet. Has had a few lookers though. This phone truly is a piece of art with how small it is. I could not believe its size. I am on Sprint with the Nexus S right now and I am almost tempted to go to AT&T just for this little sexy beast. I'm scared Sprint wont get another webOS phone : (
