HP: Pixi apps to be compatible with Veer, no extra work required

So you’re a webOS developer and you’re eyeing the HP Veer coming out in less than two weeks, and you’re wondering what you as an app wizard are going to have to do to get ready? Not much, says HP. In a posting on the webOS Developer Blog, HP says that all current App Catalog apps marked as Pixi-compatible will be automatically marked as Veer compatible, because, you know, they are. Same 320x400 screen. Same (though newer and faster and better) webOS operating system. Significantly better internals, which should alleviate every problem with the Pixi’s anemic hardware, unless you’re still hating on the screen size. The Veer will also be available as a device compatibility option when submitting new or updated apps to the Catalog.
