HP product's sucks... HP Software is buggy, not polished,conflictuous (just try their drivers and Software for their printers and scanners ) and overall bad programed.
Why wold i buy a smartphone from HP? Just because they released a new OS in a world overpopulated with better mobile OS (iOS, Android and even Symbian)? I think i'll pass...
Acctually HP Veer 4G don´t need to a SD card slot because it have an "USB mass storage support" and you can connect any external HD drive and have some TeraBytes.
And more, HP customers will have many Gigabytes in the HP Cloud. Currently I have 100 GB in the HP Cloud Drive, but in the future this amount will increase, probably.
About the 800 Mhz CPU, this is a great power to an WebOs device, but not to anothers Mobile OSes (eg. Android, iOS, WP), because WebOs is greatly optimized. And the tests showed that WebOs communication performance is boosted.
This little Smartphone in the size, but it is great in performance and software resources nad have a regular hardware.
to all the nay sayers out there.
Theres is a specific group of people that want this phone, (me included). the SE X10 mini pro sold like hotcakes here in denmark. and i suspect that this little gem of a phone could sell just as much, if they launched it in denmark.
poor HP, cant give a good start :(
This is an epic fail without front camera in asia.
it looks like my toys back in the old days. we used it to smack bugs
the web os is one of best os around the world but i dont know why hp and palm cells dont have external memory as for myself the 8 gb is nothing and i wont but web os based cellphones until i found one with microsd support.
The most important thing to take from this is that it's Tri-band and compatible with Telstra's NextG network. Thank you HP for getting Palm out of their Dual-band funk. Please HP bring both the Veer and the Pre3 to Australia. My imported Pre is getting old in the tooth and want good coverage again.
Taif, 02 May 2011Real Bad one... No secondary camera No card Slot Only 800 MHZ It could have been better.... moreWhy do you want more than 800MHz for a low-mid range phone with such a small display?? This phone is not my cup of tea either but it does the job it's designed for.
