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.

  • The HP Veer is a very small device and fits into the palm of my hand.

  • The HP Veer comes in with a USB cable and A/C charger adapter. There is also a small adapter for a headphone jack since there is none included in the design of the Veer.

  • The end of the charging cable is magnetic and reminds me of the mag-safe adapter on my MacBook Pro. The magnet snaps to the right side of the Veer.
