Samsung Infuse 4G and HP Veer 4G on sale
Two smartphones at the opposite ends of the size spectrum reached AT&T stores on Sunday. The Samsung Infuse 4G is the largest smartphone in the US and centers on its 4.5-inch, 480x800 Super AMOLED Plus screen along with a 1.2GHz processor, 21Mbps HSPA+ cellular data, an eight-megapixel rear camera, and a front 1.3-megapixel camera. In spite of the size, the Android 2.2 flagship costs the same $200 on contract as most high-end smartphones.
The HP Veer 4G meanwhile is one of the smallest phones with just a 2.6-inch, 320x400 screen and a slide-out keyboard. It's the first of the webOS phones designed primarily during the HP era and has a much faster 800MHz Snapdragon processor along with its namesake 14.4Mbps HSPA Internet access and webOS 2.1. AT&T is selling the phone for half as much as the Infuse at $100 on contract.
