HP Veer 4G: AT&T Get Official With Price & Release Date

The cell phone market is certainly getting good, recent times have seen the release of the white iPhone 4 from Apple, the pre-order page going live on Vodafone for the HTC Sensation and now we are hearing a few more official details of a budget smartphone that might be what you are looking for.

It’s the HP Veer 4G and AT&T has gone official with the price and release date details. We first learned of this through an article over on Engadget by Donald Melanson where he talks about how they have added the ‘4G’ to the name of it. Good move in our books as 4G connectivity is quite a selling point these days.

We are a little past the predicted launch date of May 2nd as we previously predicted but we were right with the price, it’s coming in at $99.99 on a two-year deal and that will see you land the handset in either black or white on May 15th.

Let’s just recap on what you get for your hard earned cash, you get the speedy little handset that boasts a snapdragon processor running at 800MHz, a 2.6 multi-touch display at a resolution of 320×400, a 5 megapixel camera, a slide out QWERTY keyboard and a load of other bits that you can read about from their official page on this link.
