HP Veer 4G, Available on AT&T May 15th

Yes, the day is upon us. The first HP branded webOS device, the Veer 4G, will be available on AT&T starting on May 15th. The Veer will be available in both black and white. Priced at $99.99 (with a new 2-year agreement), the Veer is one of the smallest smartphones available.

Early reports are that despite the small size, the Veer 4G is a very powerful little phone. So are you jumping for the Veer or waiting for the upcoming Pre 3? That’s the question facing many Palm faithful coming May 15th.

We had previously seen mentions of Broadway, Windsor, Mantaray and Stingray, but those were likely code names. Now if Mr.Blurrycam® will just pay a visit to these three, we’ll have a better of idea of what’s coming in 2011 and what we might see announced at CES.
