HP today announced the HP Veer webOS 2.1 smartphone. The Veer is the smallest webOS phone to date - the size of a credit card and no thicker than a deck of cards - yet it offers the higher-end features of a smartphone, such as easy messaging and access to apps, social networks and the web, including support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta in the browser for access to rich, Flash-based web content. It has a full slide-out keyboard, vivid touchscreen and access to thousands of webOS apps in a surprisingly small, modern package that fits easily into a pocket or purse. It’s everything a smartphone should be, but in a smarter size.
At just 54.5 x 84.0 x 15.1 mm and only 103 grams, the Veer features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSPA and touts an 800 MHz processor, a vivid 2.57" glass 320 x 400 resolution display touchscreen, full slide-out keyboard, 8 GB of internal user storage, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, integrated GPS and a 5 megapixel camera as well as a proximity sensor, light sensor and accelerometer.
The Veer also includes HP Synergy, which is exclusive to webOS devices. Synergy brings together information from multiple sources across the web automatically, so the information you need is all in one place.
The HP Veer is scheduled to be available in the early spring. Exact pricing and availability will be announced at a later date.
