We’ve been hearing “spring,” “soon,” and most recently “very soon” with regards to when the minuscule HP Veer smartphone is supposed to launch. Of course, all this vagueness means little without a concrete date, and it’s looking like that date might actually be very soon, perhaps as soon as the opening days of May (as in next month).
What might lead us to draw such a conclusion? Perhaps this invitation that’s popped up online from HP, scheduled for the evening of May 2 in Anaheim, California, for the HP Veer Launch Party Event. We’re not sure exactly who this invitation is for, but it’s out there for all to see. The three-hour event (preceded by appetizers) will include “hands-on training, exciting demos and HP giveaways” and, well, that’s about all we know about this. If you were hoping to get your hands on a smartphone so small it can’t fit a micro-USB port or headphone jack, then you might be looking at only a few weeks instead of the indeterminate “soon.”
