Treo and Centro Accessories - Editor's Choice Roundup
Given the mountain of Treo accessories and Centro accessories available for your smartphone today I thought that it might be helpful to provide you with a very selective list of the top accessories in my own arsenal – one exclusively limited to those that I consider to be my Editor’s Choice products.
SPE P6 Pouch Case
This has been the bestselling Treo case for as long as I can remember and it has without a doubt withstood the test of time. Top marks and terrific value. (See SPE P6 Pouch Case review)
Helix Holster II
Both the original Helix Holster and this updated version have proven to be one of the best solutions to keep your Treo by your side and access it quickly with one hand. (See Helix Holster II review)
Nutshell Natural Case
Probably one of the most robust yet simple Treo cases ever made the Nutshell has recently regained a serious following even though it is one of the most expensive models available today.
SPE UltraSlim Executive Pocket Pouch
While some people have complained about the overall build of this pouch I still consider it one of the most convenient protective leather cases for my Treo and continue to use it on a daily basis – I wouldn’t be without one. (See SPE UltraSlim Executive Pocket Pouch review)
SPE P6 Pouch Case
It should not be surprising that this bestselling Treo case has also now managed to achieve the #1 rank in the Centro cases category. You simply can’t go wrong with this model.
The new Seidio Rubberized Centro holster ticks all the right points – it’s elegant, sturdy and makes it extremely quick and convenient to answer calls while always having the Centro by your side. (See Centro Holster review)
Seidio Super Slim Hybrid Hard Case
I particularly like this Centro hard case with its rubberized back to provide excellent grip while leaving a clear front that does not cut the lines of my smartphone.
Jawbone Noise Shield Bluetooth Headset
One of the top items in my holiday gift list, the Jawbone continues to make me extremely happy. Its noise cancellation technology is so good in fact that it’s become extremely hard to compare other headsets – there’s simply no other that comes close to matching its capabilities. I can’t recommend it highly enough. (See Jawbone review)
Jabra SP5050 Speakerphone
If you’ve ever thought that it was time to drive “hands free” and would like to have a dedicated solution in your car to quickly make and receive calls then you’ll just love the Jabra SP5050 – it’s the best and most beautiful Bluetooth speakerphone that I have tested to date. (See Jabra SP5050 review)
Freedom Keychain GPS Receiver
Until the day that Palm provide us with a Treo or Centro that has built-in GPS the best alternative will be this ultrasmall and ultralight GPS receiver that easily fits in your pocket… (See Freedom Keychain GPS review)
Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition 2+
Although you could certainly not go wrong gettng the TomTom Navigator 6 Bundle this GPS kit offered by Palm is more complete with an included custom Treo car mount and also considerably less expensive. A Treo GPS kit is one of my most trusted solutions and I never travel without one.
Motorola S9 Stereo Bluetooth Headset
This A2DP stereo Bluetooth headset is not without its faults but it’s nonetheless the lightest, most comfortable and most attractive one that I have come across to date. (See Motorola S9 review)
SPE Retractable S&C Cable
This product is probably the best value accessory that you will find in our store. It charges and HotSync’s your smartphone via your PC’s USB port and the combination of its retractable cable, small size and lightweight makes it ideal to take with you on the go. (See SPE Retractable S&C Cable review)
Treo Battery Charger (not for Centro)
This ultrasmall and ultralight portable battery charger is probably the best accessory ever designed by Palm and is ideal for charging your spare batteries while on the go. (See Treo Battery Charger review)
SPE Wall Charger
You can never have enough chargers and this compact and light one is perfect when you travel or simply if you’re looking to have a spare one at home or the office.
Palm Cradle Kit
This 3 in 1 charger, HotSync and battery charger cradle from Palm is not only elegant but also extremely practical. It has always been one of the bestselling accessories in our store. [Please note that a spare Centro battery cannot be charged via this cradle.]
Palm Car Charger
Pretty simple and a complete no brainer if you want to ensure that your smartphone is fully charger at all times while you’re driving.
Palm 2 in 1 Stereo Headset Pro
Thanks to its superb build quality and convenient 2 in 1 (audio + microphone) design this headset has rapidly become the #1 bestselling product in its category and won many fans. (See Palm 2 in 1 Stereo Headset Pro review)
SPE Stereo Adapter
If you ever want to use a standard 3.5mm headset with your smartphone then you’ll need this 2.5mm adapter. It’s one of the first and most basic accessories to add to your kit.
3M Microfiber Cleaning Cloth
You will have noticed that your smartphone accumulates dust, dirt and skin oils during normal use. This microfiber cleaning cloth makes it all disappear…
BodyGuardz Protective Skin for Treo and Centro
If you’re concerned about scratches to your smartphone then you’ll welcome the magic of these clear and ultrathin plastic films that are perfectly pre-cut to fit your device. An additional benefit is that it enhances the grip you have on your smartphone. (See BodyGuardz review)
iGrip Custom Fit Flexible Mount (not for Centro)
If you want to keep your smartphone easily within sight and reach in your car then this iGrip solution is my favourite as it also offers a light custom fit cradle for any Treo model. (See iGrip Custom Fit review)
Arkon Vehicle Mount Kit (fits Centro)
This universal car kit is the best one that I’ve found for my Centro and although it is slightly more expensive than the iGrip above it provides an extremely solid build and also a vent mount.
Treo and Centro Stylus
Your small Treo or Centro stylus may have a bad habit of “disappearing” and you’ll find that keeping a spare set at hand will come in handy. Additionally, many of the spare styli in our store offer a convenient Pen-Stylus alternative – ideal to quickly jot something while on the go.
I’ve stopped counting the number of spare batteries that I own. It’s evident that they provide you with the most convenient way to get back up to full speed when you’re running looking on your charge. I recommend getting a spare battery with the highest mAh capacity for your smartphone.
