The blogs are abuzz over a PreCentral un-sourced rumor report that the Veer will be free at Best Buy this Saturday – and that it will be available for in-store preorder. However, we have not been able to confirm this. The Veer is not listed for preorder on the BestBuy.com website, and a few folks are also reporting that in-store Best Buy staff no nothing of this promotion.
Even so, PreCentral has a good track record so they probably have the goods on this.
Having said that, it isn't exactly free. If the rumor pans out, you will still have to shell out $50 cash and sign your life away for a 2-year contract with AT&T. In return Best Buy will hand you the tiny, black & white HP Veer 4G and a $50 Best Buy gift card. Then you can go spend $50 on more Best Buy stuff.
Otherwise, the Veer will set you back $99 at AT&T stores nationwide, starting Sunday, May 15.
