Veer and Pre 3 start showing up in app logs

At the Think Beyond event, HP’s Applications and Services Senior Vice President Steven McArthur went out of his way to acknowledge developer Connor LaCombe, the guy behind Voogle, the lone Google Voice app for webOS. That’s for good reason, as Google Voice is slowly working its way into the mainstream. Now that the HP Veer and Pre 3 are public knowledge, Palm’s testing the two devices (and possibly versions 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 of webOS) and not masking them from showing up in app logs like Metrix. (it is possible that somebody's punking us, though if we had to guess we'd say fakers would be more audacious and put in something like the TouchPad)

LaCombe’s Voogle Metrix logs have picked up both the Veer and Pre 3 in testing, with the Pre 3 lumped in as merely “Pre” but standing out due to its 480x800 size screen (whereas the Veer stands out by name and blends with the Pixi in screen size). Neither device is much closer to launch - late spring and summer have never seemed so far away - but it’s still nice to see HP testing their devices with important apps to ensure full compatibility.
