Although we couldn't even touch the TouchPad (irony!) or the Pre 3, we did get to play with HP's smallest member of the webOS family, the Veer. Having gotten used to seeing and using 3.7, 4.0 and 4.3" devices over the last year, my first reaction after seeing the Veer was that of absolute shock; this thing is SMALL!

I have included below a couple of hands-on shots of the Veer. Check back later today for a much more detailed and in-depth look at the TouchPad, Pre 3, Veer and webOS in general.

    The slide says "Gesture area". What exactly does that mean? Reply

    It has both. A gesture area at the bottom and a touch screen. Reply

    Still unhappy about the screen size. The Xoom is the only thing that's coming close to a standard sheet of american paper (8.5 x 11) . All other manufacturers seem to want to go smaller.

    If this is going to be used in conjunction with a smartphone/PDA device, then I'm going to want it to be a little bigger. If they just removed the "grip" edges and made the whole thing a screen, i'd be happy.

    whats an american size piece of paper tablet going to serve? except give you the dimensions you need. I mean is it really going to matter that few more inches?

    It's a multimedia device with the capability of zooming in and out. Its much more portable as well. Im sure eventually companies will have smaller and larger tablets even if some are relunctant to admit it.

    you still have a notebook right?

    by the way if the whole thing was a screen, how you going to hold it without causing the screen to react unless it only reacts to a stylus like a wacom tablet ;)

    The Pre 3 looks great! Finally something to replace my Pre. It's exactly what I want. Just a tad bit larger without being a brick and a little bit more under the hood. Is the Pre 3 going to have 4g? In the slide it says "world phone" and mentions HSPA+ and EVDO. Is the phone going to have both standards or just two versions? It would be nice to have both in one phone just in case you needed to travel to an area that had another standard.

    I really have a lot more questions. Are you guys planning a full review just like you gave for the LG Optimus 2X? Please? :)

    The Pre 3 is scheduled to be launched sometime this Summer. We'll definitely have a detailed review of the Pre 3 once we gets our hands on one! :) You should expect a review of the Veer before that though. Reply
