Teen talk: Should HP have even bothered with the Veer?

Summary: HP's first smartphone after acquiring Palm is the HP Veer and there don't appear to be many who like the Zoolander-sized phone. It's similar to the previous Palm Pre devices, just smaller and less powerful. My 15-year old daughter took it for a spin for a week since I thought someone with smaller hands and less mobile needs might find it enjoyable.
