HP Veer Hands-On Video Walk-Through
February 10, 2011 12:01 AM

If you didn’t hear the news, HP announced two smart phones at their press conference in San Francisco this morning: Pre 3 and Veer. For the geeky, feel free to backtrack through Skatter Tech LIVE for minute-by-minute coverage of the event. We also just published a HD video demo of the new TouchPad tablet, for those interested. I also had a chance to spend some time with the HP Veer and I captured a full walk-through video, which you can watch below:

HP Veer Specifications:

  • Powered by HP webOS
  • Runs on Qualcomm 800 MHz processor
  • CDMA and GSM models will be available
  • 2.6 inch multi-touch 320×400 pixel display
  • Slide-out Qwerty keyboard
  • Integrated GPS module
  • 5 megapixel camera with geotagging
  • Two microphones for noise cancellation
  • Accelerometer, light, and proximity sensors

  • 8 GB internal storage and USB storage mode
  • 910 mAh non-removable battery
  • 5 hours of talk-time or 300 hours standby
  • Magnetic charging port with USB adapter
  • Compatible with Touchstone wireless dock
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack with included adapter
  • Dimensions 2.15 x 3.31 x 0.59 inches
  • Weighs just 103 grams (3.63 ounces)

The Veer is essentially a micro version of the larger Pre 3. Rather than heading to a over-sized 4.3 inch display like the majority of the latest Android smart phones, HP headed in the opposite direction. Although it shares a very similar form factor with the now-defunct Microsoft Kin, a representative stated that it was a full-blown smart phone and that it would not face the same issues.

We’re quite excited for this device since the webOS interface works smoothly¬†on the small form factor. The performance was quite speedy and the hardware was definitely attractive. Even our new Skatter Tech Touch mobile site worked perfectly on the device. Although the HP Veer will not ship until¬†spring, I’ll publish an in-depth look at this phone soon.
