HP's tiniest WebOS phone, the Veer
This is Eric Franklin from CNET.
We're here at the HP webOS event.
What I have right here, the-- the Veer.
Let me give you an idea of how small it is.
This is my iPhone 4 right here, right next to it, and it's, as you can see, about 2/3 the size.
The touchpad is even smaller than the-- the Pre.
I kinda use it myself.
My hands are really big, so the buttons are actually too small for me.
I may have to resort to using my
fingernails and actually use to actually get some kind of precision with the buttons.
One of the new features of webOS 2.0 is just type.
So basically, if you have a card up and you just start typing, you'll get a couple of options and-- like I just typed rats just as a random and you can even use that text to go to Google Maps, go to Wikipedia to do more research on it, or you can like go to Facebook and just post whatever you just typed.
It just feels really small.
It has a camera on the back;
I feel like people who don't really like larger phones are probably gonna be-- really be into it.
We don't know anything about pricing yet or anything about confirmed dates so far, but stay tuned to CNET and we'll be bringing you more news on the Veer.
