Call quality is exceptional
The harsh reality is this: even if HP would've gone ahead with the Pre 3's launch on AT&T, moving 'em would've been tough. The company showed minimal interest in moving the TouchPad (well, until they showed nothing but interest in moving the TouchPad), and attempting to hawk a tired, understated design for an on-contract price that aligns with the iPhone 4 and a vertible plethora of tremendous Android phones would've probably led to even more tears.
Bigger and more spacious keyboard
Although limited in terms of applications, the HP Pre 3 does offer an ease of use not yet encountered in other mobile phones. The user interface is fast and attractive and its intuitive features enhance the phone's usability. Along with its attractive design, camera, and QWERTY keyboard the HP Pre 3 is a great phone for anyone looking for functionality and beauty.

Slick, intuitive webOS software
Overall, the HP Pre 3 looks like a big, powerful upgrade to the Pre and Pre 2. It webOS software is slick and easy to use, too. But the lack of apps and fellow Pre users means that you'll probably miss out on some of the fun of brandishing a smart phone.
Fast, capable and easy to use
Alas, despite price cut rumours, hunting down an HP Pre 3 beyond Carphone Warehouse may well be a problem, if experience is anything to go by. The review sample came through Clove Technology a distributor that, in all the uncertainty, eventually cancelled its Pre 3 order from HP. Even so, the Pre 3 proved to be a decent little smartphone fast, capable and easy to use.
Too small for comfort, lack of apps, lousy camera
The HP Veer 4G is an interesting device, to say the least. It represents HP's first official effort with a webOS smartphone since the personal computer manufacturer acquired smartphone pioneer Palm just over a year ago. Design-wise, the Veer bucks the trend in smartphones that says bigger is better, as it is one of the smallest smartphones we have ever laid hands on. The Veer retains the familiar Palm design philosophy that was debuted with the original Palm Pre back in 2009.
Fluid platform experience
As much as we absolutely adore is quaint form factor, we find that it's also its Achilles Heel at the same time. Specifically, we're limited in our output with certain functions, like typing up messages or reading emails, that seem to make it become more of a chore than anything else. Even more, the HP Veer 4G lacks the battery stamina to fully provide the juice that smartphone users are accustomed to seeing at this point.
Poor camera and video,Poor battery life
In the end, the Veer is pointing in the right direction. We're not going to say "watch out Google" or "start counting your days Apple" and we think even RIM BlackBerry has nothing to worry about but we're also not predicting total failure. The Veer is just an early false restart for the webOS platform.
The main problem we have is working out who this phone is aimed at - is it teenagers with feasibly smaller fingers? They probably will want more apps and better messaging options.
The Veer excelled when it came to being a productive citizen in society, thanks to the phone's multitasking capabilities.
This little slider is not for everyone. From the webOS operating system to its miniscule dimensions, the Veer will find a home within a select group of mobile users who value the space in their pocketbooks and bask in the joys of multitasking. We happen to think webOS is just dandy. It's more of a "think outside the Droid" approach to mobile connectivity, and for that, HP excels.
The HP Veer 4G packs a lot of features into a very compact package, but it requires too many trade-offs.
The HP Veer 4G doesn't really offer anything that would tempt an iPhone or Android phone owner to buy this device. It's more like a messaging phone that can do a lot more. But even viewed in that light, the Veer 4G doesn't hit the mark. While the design is remarkably small and pocket-friendly, the screen is tough to read in portrait mode, and you have to attach an awkward accessory just to plug in headphones. We think the phone would have worked better as a landscape slider.
So small it's hard to use.
Honey, who shrunk the Palm Pre? That was our first thought when we saw the absolutely tiny Veer running webOS 2.1.2 with the Pre's familiar design and slide-down QWERTY keyboard. We're not really sure why Palm (now a part of HP), thought the world needed a real life Zoolander phone. Sure, it's a conversation piece, but its small size makes it somewhat difficult to use.
Occasional hiccups and apps that take a moment to load
What are you looking for in a smartphone? Is it a tiny handset that turns heads? The Veer is no Zoolander phone, but it'll fill the bill if fashion is your prerogative (especially the black one) and do far more than that one-inch StarTAC. If you're looking for a capable multimedia or productivity device, you can probably tell this isn't the one -- the Veer's scaled-down screen and keyboard aren't well suited for browsing the web or interfacing with mobile software for long durations.
very good business phone
The HP iPAQ 910c Business Messenger is, as its name implies, a very good business phone. Like the BlackBerry Curve, it proves that business phones can be attractive and we do like the looks and compact size. It's a dream phone for those who love the T-Mobile Dash, Moto Q9 and BlackJack II but want Windows Mobile Pro rather than standard edition. The QWERTY-bar design is ever-popular in the US and we do love it for easier one-handed operation and expedience.
your phone might seem geeky, but we can't deny the ease and convenience of calling up tasks by barking out a quick command, rather than going through several layers of menus.
The bottom line: Despite some niggling design flaws and the lack of 3G support, the HP iPaq 510 Voice Messenger offers outstanding voice-command features as well as the enhanced productivity tools of Windows Mobile 6.
the HP iPaq 510 Voice Commander is a well-designed cell phone/PDA for an excellent price.
If you're looking for a very compact smartphone PDA that really relies on voice commands to get things done, the HP iPaq 510 Voice Commander is a well-designed cell phone/PDA for an excellent price.
The HP iPAQ 510 Voice Messenger is a solid phone for people who like the idea of having Outlook in their pocket but don't need a QWERTY keyboard. HP does a nice job of not only incorporating the Windows Mobile 6 OS but improving upon it as well. If you have your heart set on a high-performing Voice Commander functionality, though, you might want to wait for round two before spending $300.
for the price buyers should be happy to find themselves playing music, navigating with GPS and watching videos."
A Ferrari powered by a Wolksvagen motor - that’s the HP iPAQ hw6515 in a nutshell. An otherwise excellent set of hardware and software harboured in a surprisingly small form factor is hampered by poor thumbboard responsiveness, a modest processor, limited memory and poor battery life.
