Palm Centro Air Case Review
This week Palm released its first official Centro case with the launch of the excellent Palm Centro Air Case (pictured below) which I have quickly selected as my favourite Centro hard case and now decided to use on a daily basis to protect my smartphone.
I have to admit that I have been mightily impressed by this thin, strong, translucent and ultralight Centro Air Case as it offers terrific scratch and drop protection, fits perfectly to the contour of your smartphone and looks truly great.
For those who have never owned one of these cases, the Centro Air Case essentially provides two layers of thin plastic which are then “sandwiched” around your device and locked into place with a side latch mechanism that closes with a mild press. In this instance, the mold of the Centro Air Case is so good that it almost looks like it might be the original casing.
As you can appreciate from the images here above and below, the Centro Air Case provides all of the necessary cutouts for the Centro stylus, camera and back speaker. Additionally, the low profile of the case around the keyboard has been intelligently designed so as to ensure it does not interfere with your typing.
There are other small details such as the rounded corners around the side buttons (image above right) which again ensures optimal and quick accessibility.
Similarly, the bottom of the case provides perfect cutouts for the Centro headset jack, charger and HotSync connector as well as the microphone and lanyard loop. The only area that does not offer a cutout is the memory card slot but as Centronauts will know well by now the only way to really access it is actually by removing the battery cover so this cutout is not really required.
Separately, I’m also glad to say that I found the P6 Pouch Case (pictured on the right) to be the perfect companion for the Palm Centro Air Case if you’re looking to carry your smartphone by your side at all times.
The bestselling P6 Pouch Case (see my review) is one of the best value Centro accessories available and the smooth surface of the Air Case makes it extremely easy to insert and remove at a moment’s notice.
Centronauts always work hard on the case…
