AT&T announces HP Veer for May 15

The HP Veer

AT&T announced Wednesday that it will begin selling the HP Veer, a small sliding 4G phone, on May 15 for $99 with a two-year contract.

The phone is the company’s first to run HP’s webOS software, is no bigger than a credit card and no thicker than a deck of cards.

The Veer has a full keyboard and 2.6-inch touch screen and can function as a hotspot with AT&T’s DataPro plan.

It’s not the flashiest or most powerful phone AT&T has in its 4G stable, but its price and compact frame may be enough to earn a spot on a couple of wish lists.

HP announced plans for the phone in February, along with the TouchPad and the Pre3.
