Giveaway and Review: AT&T HP Veer 4G Smart Phone
With my never-ending affection for giveaways, it felt wrong to let the first days of Alytude’s new home go by without a fun product to share.
And one of my favorite giveaways to do — despite my beauty obsession – are gadgets.
I was at an event a few years ago, and was gifted the original Palm Pixi — at the time, it was on Sprint, and despite being an avowed BlackBerry girl, I was loving the form and style of it.
However, at the time, there were things I *didn’t like — I didn’t like webOS and I didn’t like the lack of Wi-Fi (stone age, I know).
Well, fast forward to the here and now, and welcome to the HP Veer — now it’s on AT&T, and I believe it may be the first brand-spanking-new phone out of the Palm camp since the Pixi.
…and…I like it!
For those who aren’t loving the new trend of huge phones (what’s THAT about???) this is small and is faced with chemically-hardened Gorilla Glass – super durable if you are like me and always dropping your phone everywhere.
That’s not where the minimalism ends: You’ll find the speaker and camera are co-located in the top left corner. ALSO a noise-cancelling microphone is in this corner — but you won’t find a removable battery — because there’s no removable back!
You know who I think this phone is perfect for? Someone who wants a webOS phone with a physical keyboard, but isn’t into Androids. Also great if you love things petite in shiny new packages! Which, if you read Alytude, you obviously do.
And, so, I have one of these babies to give away. Want your chance to win?
