HP allowed journalists and analysts to get close and personal with its just-released WebOS smartphones, the HP Pre 3 and the HP Veer.

Both handsets were under heavy guard - as in journalists were not supposed to test them properly - but still plenty of snaps were taken.

The HP Veer is particularly impressive by its sheer size and will surely give the Sony Ericsson X8 a run for its money.

There were some compromises though; the phone uses a non-conventional magnetised USB connector, doesn't have a headphone socket, a flash for its camera or a front-facing one.

The HP spokesperson did not reveal which version of WebOS was being used, stating that it was a "2.x" iteration.
