We haven’t heard too much about the HP Veer since it was originally announced at an event back on Feb. 9th. While it was promised for a spring release, there hadn’t been another word on it until now, and at some point HP decided to also add a white version to the mix. Apparently white is the new black when it comes to gadgets?
The new phone, the first to be released with webOS since HP purchased Palm will go on sale through AT&T on May15th for $99 on the usual two-year contract. If you’re holding out for another carrier to pick up the phone that’s “the size of a credit card and no thicker than a deck of cards” at another carrier, we’re sorry to inform you that this will indeed be exclusive to AT&T.
