Reception to the Veer, HP's latest (and certainly smallest) smartphone, has so far been fairly subdued. But Amazon is looking to change that in the most effective way possible: By making the phone sinfully cheap.
Following its previous price cut of the (on contract) white Veer to a penny, Amazon is similarly slashing the price of the black version of the phone.
And the cuts are (sort of) paying off: The black Veer is currently 34th on Amazon's list of bestselling smartphones with service plans, directly trailing Kyocera's dual-screened Echo.
Amazon's deal is only slightly less compelling than the one offered by Best Buy, which supplies the white version of Veer for free with two-year AT&T contract. Not crazy about the AT&T part? Join the club.
