Palm Centro Announcement Today

I am currently in NYC where in a few hours Palm and Sprint are expected to unveil the new Palm Centro smartphone (pictured below) to an audience of credentialed media and market analysts attending a press conference at DigitalLife. The event, held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, will begin with lunch at 12:15 p.m. EDT, immediately followed by the press conference at 12:30 p.m. EDT.

Palm Centro Announcement

Additionally, Sprint have already launched a Palm Centro microsite containing a few more details including the claim that it is the "world's smallest Palm device", that it will be launched on October 14 available for $99.99 (after $100 mail-in rebate with a minimum $25 data plan and two year service agreement) in either red or black…

Palm and Sprint are also inviting credentialed media, as well as market and financial analysts not attending DigitalLife to join a one-hour live, streamed webcast about this announcement today beginning at 12:30 p.m. EDT.

The live webcast can be accessed using the following link: http://www.videonewswire.com/event.asp?id=42256

A replay will be available using the link above at approximately 4 p.m. EDT on Sept. 27.

I will naturally post more information after the press conference and my meeting with the product management team as well as pictures and my first impressions of the new Palm Centro later this afternoon.

Treonauts are always at the centre of things

Can you please post the price more people will be paying which is not the 2 year agreement deal price? I hate seeing $99.99 when that price is ONLY available to new customers starting a new line of service. You can't even upgrade to that price if you already have Sprint. That is not just the price for people renewing a 2 year agreement. It's the price for a new line of service being activated.

My guess is the real price is $199 since the add says $99 after a $100 rebate if you do this, that and the other thing

The "treonaut wizard" has stepped from behind the curtain...live on webcast! Keep up the good work with getting us the latest news (good and bad) to us first. Thanks

Does it have wifi, FM radio, and GPS?

Wonder if this Centro will sport Palm OS? And will it be available in Europe?

I am keenly waiting for Palm to bring an up to date Palm OS device to replace my years old Treo 650. If not, I'll soon switch to my other favourite company, Apple and get the iPhone. What I'll never do is switch to WinMob. Not in this life. Hello, Palm, please wake up!

I am trying the iPhone after using a 650 for 2 years. Very disappointed! Going to upgrade to 755p instead, real keyboard with a touch screen is the best features of Treo, don't know how well the fixed screen will go over...

Will the Centro have Bluetooth so it will work with BMW Bluetooth?

by icoco | Sep 27, 2007 5:06:13 PM


Now that's it? That's the new Palm OS device? It seems as if we can't expect any more ideas from Palm than old wine in new bottles. The same old Palm OS as on my Treo. Best thing here is that we get back the sound on/off switch, which Palm took away with the 500. Ridiculous.

I'll say goodbye, see me at Apple. I'll switch to the iPhone soon. Sorry Palm, but that's just awkward.

Palm LIES.

(Or they're even more brain-damaged than I thought.)

The Centro isn't "the world's smallest Palm device".

This is:

Fossil Wrist PDA Watch

How soon they forget!

Grrrrr John Whorefin, its the smallest Pelm device, not the smallest PalmOS device, read the text before you start hosing! Fossil wasnt even a phone. GSL Xplore made plenty of smaller PalmOS phones, but once again, they weren't made by Palm.

I don't know why everyone whines about the lack of a touchscreen. What many don't seem to realize what makes the Treo so cool is that everything can be controlled with your thumb and therefore super quick when accessing anything. I rarely use my touchscreen except in small, infrequent instances when its slightly more convenient to tap something. I leave the screen shining and blinging in all its beauty and try not to paw it all up. If you use all the provided shortcuts it is quite handedly the fastest, easiest phone on the market. Try using a win mob with one thumb? Nightmare I know. Recognize.

correction to name post.

by Julian | Sep 28, 2007 3:44:18 AM

Well I like the look of it - it's like my 650 but smaller and has PocketTunes and room for a 4 gig card. I'm sold. Just have to figure out how to get one (uh two, my wife'll want one too) to New Zealand.

Hi! can you make comparisons to our beloved treos against this killer phones?

"Does it have wifi, FM radio, and GPS?"

HaHa, that's really funny. Made me laugh outloud (LOL). Actually maybe I should cry.

by Chuck Taylor | Sep 29, 2007 6:41:56 PM

"Does it have... FM radio..."

WTF?! You can't be serious dude. FM is sooo 1980s. Lame. FM stations are crap in any market, what a worthless thing to add to any decent product.
