Veer Drops $100 off Full Retail, Now Free with Contract
Exactly one month after its official release date, HP's latest WebOS-powered device is already seeing some substantial price drops across the board.
Several years ago, much hoopla was made when Palm's Centro hit "free" status after nearly a year after hitting the market. But the new HP Veer 4G has already hit that price at several retailers within days of its initial availability. Amazon Wireless and Best Buy Mobile are now selling the Veer in both color choices with the usual 2yr contract for free, though AT&T's price is still the same $99.99 as it was at launch.
More surprisingly, the Veer has seen a swift decrease in its full retail unsubsidized price. Amazon Wireless is now offering both colors of the Veer without a contract for $349 and free shipping, almost certainly a record drop for a brand-new GSM device. Best Buy and AT&T are all still selling the Veer at its original full retail price of $449, however.
