The Veer has a smaller battery than any webOS phone to date - a 910 mAh non-removable (Also a first for webOS phones) battery. The battery life is said to be similar to that of previous Pre models, with up to 5.0 hours of talk time or 300 hours of standby time. But despite not being able to remove the battery, the device comes with a touchstone-compatible back cover, allowing the device to charge inductively by just setting it on the touchstone.
The device lacks a micro-USB and headphone jack in order to keep a small form factor, so instead HP opted to include a magnetic strip on the device that connects to an adapter to allow either micro-usb access or a headphone jack.

The device will have 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of storage. The Veer will also have dual-microphones for noise cancellation, and is expected to be available this May.
