HP rolled out several new mobile devices in San Francisco today, including the tiny HP Veer that is getting some big attention as it is the smallest webOS smartphone yet.
The HP Veer measures 3.25-inches tall when in compact mode, which is about the same sizes as a standard credit card. Even when the device slides out to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, it still looks slightly reminscent of the failed Microsoft Kin One.
Nevertheless, HP managed to pack a lot of punch into this petite handheld, including:
- 2.6-inch multi-touch display (320 x 400 resolution)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 7230 800MHz processor
- 5-megapixel camera
- HSPA+ support
- Quad-band GSM/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900
- 8GB of storage space
- 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
- Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
- Proximity and ambient light sensors
- Mobile hotspot support
- Battery life: Up to five hours of talk time or 300 hours on standby
The Veer will start shipping this spring, but neither pricing nor mobile carriers have been revealed yet.
