HP Veer 4G
And here's where things took a turn for the worse. Sure it was cute and portable, and WebOS continued to shine, but the Veer's usability was pretty abysmal. It was way too small, AT&T's data speeds were slow, and the frustrating proprietary connector meant that you had to use a separate adapter for headphones. Truly, it was one of those "What were they thinking?" moments. Even worse, it was a sad way to end the operating system's run with U.S. carriers.
CNET review bottom line: The HP Veer 4G looks cute and packs in a good amount of features for the price and size, but ultimately the smartphone's compact design hinders usability and limits its appeal.
