Review: HP Veer 4G
HP's App Catalog offers several thousand applications, but it absolutely pales in comparison to what's available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, and BlackBerry devices. The App Catalog software itself has been updated somewhat, but it's still clunky to sort through. Updating applications is a pain, and when you actually find something worth downloading, the store doesn't provide users with enough feedback. Is it downloading? Did it finish, or crash? What just happened?Bluetooth
The Veer has Bluetooth on board, and supports mono and stereo headsets. Pairing and set-up wasn't a problem. Sound quality of both calls and music playback was horrendous. Truly awful. You can't do useful things such as send files via Bluetooth between the Veer and your PC.Clock
The Veer is a fine watch replacement. From a sleeping state, hit the power/lock key and the Veer displays a huge digital clock. This can't be changed. There is a clock application in the system menu, but it really is just an alarm clock/stopwatch, and has not relevance to the lock screen clock.

The Veer has AT&T's Navigator software and Google Maps on board. If you want turn-by-turn, voice-guided directions, stick with AT&T's $10-per-month service. Google Maps on the Veer will provide a route from point A to point B, but can't guide you there automatically.
