Though the hardware clearly appeals to a niche market, webOS is back on a carrier.  Aaron takes an in-depth look at the HP Veer 4G, one of AT&T's newest smartphones.  Powered by an 800 MHz processor, the Veer has a 2.6-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, full QWERTY keyboard, and HSPA+ connectivity (14.4 Mbps).  It's available now for $99.99, and if you can deal with the tiny size, it's quite the impressive smartphone.

That said, there are some well-equipped high-end smartphones on AT&T with better hardware (Infuse 4G, Inspire 4G, iPhone 4, just to name a few).  With all of those choices, is it worth sacrificing build quality and design just to have webOS?  We'll figure it out.  Part 1 of 2.

Jason King Its not made for big hands, i will say that but its interesting who is this phone marketed for ??? Kids want iPhones or Androids So who is going to buy this ... Yes its too small .. They need an all touch device with no keyboard OR a device that has the same build as the Droid2/3... just a little thinner .. This will not be a fast seller ...
