    WOW. Who could have thought that talking in front of the camera for 30 seconds would make you a million dollar richer. Awesome.

    Small smartphone is small.

    Actually, I’ve read good reviews on Palm’s OS in terms of UI and functionality. App development na lang ang kulang for this which, during these days, is a big point to consider.

    He should stick to the “sweet science”.

  15. benchmark says:

    It made me smile while watching the ad. :) Ang galing ng Pilipino! :)

    Go Pacman! (errr not HP Veer????? hehehe)

    Regarding sa phone…I am not sure…maybe maganda sya, though screen size is small plus fixed focus cam, but the specs are good. Well I hope the price is not as high as Pacman’s endorsment….nako..baka dun bawiin sa price ng phone hehehehe

  16. damaso says:

    $1 million fee kasi nahirapan si Manny mag Ingles

  17. 21 says:

    Palm has a very limited apps like BADA. Better go to android if that matters to you.
    Great commercial though, PAcman improved a lot.

  18. knee loat says:

    released na siya sa US last May 15 [Veer] then to be announced pa young Pre 3… hmmp…

  19. da says:

    kadiri to si pacquiao… nag-e-endorse ng ewan na cellphone hahaha. pera din eh.

    • Mark says:

      Hey before insulting this phone, did you know the notification system of this phone is currently the best? But I agree it needs more developer support and a more updated hardware

    • Jun says:

      Hello, HP is very well known in their products such as Printer, computer monitor, desktops, laptops, scanner, Fax, Ink tonner, smartphone and software.

    • knee loat says:

      @da : sure ka ba talaga sa sinasabi mo? ni hindi mo pa nga nahawakan yang veer eh…

  20. JCO says:

    The HP Veer was released last month sa US. AT&T nga lang yung carrier and there is no unlocked version pa. Superb yung webOS na platform but it really need apps pa talaga…wait till the HP TouchPad is released din.

  21. Jun says:

    Nagkakahalaga daw yan ng $400 or P16K.
    Medyo mahal para sa akin. Intayin ko na lang ang imitation ng China phone. (Joke)

  22. vince says:

    Why not just ditch the endorser and use the $1m to subsidize (reduce the price) of the product. Lalong bebenta yan kasi mas mura

  23. Mark says:

    where can i buy this hp veer here in the Philippines, i want this one.. Tnx!!

  24. leemar says:

    sana magkaroon ng webos phone dto sa pinas. globe sana magawan ito ng paraan.
