HP expanding internal beta tests on new devices

We are still expecting to see the HP Veer arrive sometime this Spring and the Pre 3 in Summer. We have a sign this morning that these launches may be well on track: HP is expanding a beta test program outside of the Palm Global Business Unit and into HP as a whole. While all signs still point to the Palm GBU still operating as a virtually independent group within HP, it's good to see that they're seeking feedback from the company as a whole.

The beta program - as with beta programs we've heard of in the past - is a rolling, ongoing thing where Palm seeds pre-release devices and software updates to people for short periods of time (usually a couple of weeks) for testing. Hopefully it's a sign that the two phones will hit earlier rather than later in their promised release seasons.
