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.

  • HP Veer next to Dell Venue Pro with both keyboards revealed. The Veer is much smaller than the Dell, as you can see.

  • Here you can see the Veer sandwiched between an HTC ThunderBolt and a Dell Venue Pro to give you a feel for the size of the device.

  • The Veer is even tiny when compared to the smallest smartphone I have in my collection, the HTC Touch Diamond.
