The HP Veer is the first smartphone to a new line of mobile products WebOS announced this February 9, 2011 and plays the card of compactness.
At its press conference on 9 February 2011, HP introduced a range of mobile products under WebOS, the first since its acquisition of Palm in 2010 for $ 1.2 billion. Note that the Palm brand has also completely disappeared from the ads, leaving only the name and HP logo.
The first product is a small smartphone with a rounded shape reminiscent of the Palm Pre roller but in a more compact format. The HP Veer indeed has dimensions of only 84 x 54 x 15.1 mm 103 g, the relative thickness is related to the presence of a sliding full keyboard below the screen.

The terminal features a Qualcomm MSM7230 CPU (processor family that was issued in late 2009, especially designed for mid-range smartphone) running at 800 MHz and WiFi connectivity 802.11 b / g / n (with mobile hotspot function), Bluetooth 2.1, A-GPS and 8GB of storage space (6.5 GB accessible to the user).
