    They are marketing it as a companion phone to a tablet user. If you are carrying around a tablet, why would you need a large screen phone?

    Not sure if it's mentioned in this thread, but they took up the back of the NY Times as well.

    Youtube and New York times, who are they!?!

    nice to see the ads but seriously I wish they had more on the table already. The veer still only sells to such a small group of people. I think hp is making a mistake by not having the touchpad and pre 3 for sale yet. If you click the veer ad on youtube link it takes you to a page with the touchpad and the pre 3 but not even a release date just this summer. Come on hp. If you dont have the product at least give them a date to think about and look towards.

    on a side note hp stock is pretty low right now. I may be picking some up cause I have no doubt that with hp pushing webos to enterprise users its a win and could really blow things up if it works out.

    Not to burst your bubble but webOS is such a small piece of the HP pie that it won't significantly affect their bottom line for quite some time. $32.3 billion in earnings for the 1st quarter of 2011 means at present time webOS is but a fly on a very big wall. Somewhere over the rainbow when they get this whole machine into motion with cloud computing, phone/computer/tablet/life integration, then they will become a factor. That's years down the road.
    If "If's" and "But's" were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!

    One problem. At that corporate store, it was in the dumbphone section believe it or not. So what happens when the rep tells them what the data charges will be? Plus no one was looking at it.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    This may actually play out a bit different if every consumer PC sold by HP is running webOS - because the PC business would then technically be part of the webOS slice of the HP pie.

    Of course there'll still be huge parts of HP that arent (strongly) connected to webOS - servers, corporate services like virtualization, etc. - but I think that webOS will become more integral to HP's superstructure than you think, and quicker.

    every other HP launch? you mean like for that iPaq you are not holding in your hands?

    You keep holding on to this one At&t store experience like it's the end all and be all, when it isn't. The At&t store won't see customers coming in until after the marketing push really gets moving.

    yea yea. I'm not looking for a million dollars but I bet in after touchpad is in a few places I will have an extra 1000 in my pocket. The directing hp is heading and the outlook by investors is what will fuel a small increase in the numbers. Maybe in years and years hp stock will be up from all this but I am just in it for the small jump. Maybe if things look well for hp in this market I will invest more later on.

    lol, short term they are going nowhere... they just reported a poor quarter, lowered guidance, leaked email of the rest of the year not looking good and analysts have downgraded and reduced targets. i would recommend newbies like you to watch mad money then go it alone... but even jim cramer put hp in the "SELL BLOCK" last week and told everyone its a broken company.

    go ahead and buy some stock, by the end of the year your TP is gonna cost more than just the $499 at the register.

    his leaked email to his top men didnt say, 'dont worry, webos is gonna save us!'

    If you think HP has a bright future, now is the time to be buying HP when it is in the dumps. Dollar coast average your way into it and then reep the rewards if it comes back.

    Cramer would have been telling people to sell Apple in the 90's and looking back he would seem like a fool. He's a trader.

    Hey, don't blame HP for Windows CE. And I actually do own an iPaq. But I don't think HP has updated the design in years. They were going to move to WP7 but decide to buy Palm instead. I believe the iPaq will be discontinued sometime soon.

    Oh, if Jim Cramer said to sell it, then I'll go put my buy order in.

    lol, i don't like cramer either... an *****... he called sirius a used lotto ticket... i bought it at 7 cents
