Fun With Palm & Centro

After breaking the 1.0 million Centro smartphones sales milestone a couple of months ago it looks like Palm is set to add yet another million this quarter thanks to both the availability of the AT&T Centro as well as the continued strong marketing support given to the Sprint Centro.

Among others, following the success of the “More Yous” TV commercial that Sprint had been running nationwide since January to promote its Centro we now have a new – more fun and youthful – campaign that highlights some of the “cool” things that people can do with their smartphone.

The video (below) presents a woman’s finger gently flipping through multiple Centro smartphones in different colors (Sprint offers Red, Black and Pink) while a voiceover explains how the Centro “offers a touchscreen phone that manages your schedule, accesses email and text messaging, surfs the web, takes pictures, has an MP3 player and more – all on the smallest smartphone ever from Palm.  See how you can organize your life on the go – for only $99.99.”  [Or get it FREE]

     

Clearly both the Treo and Centro can do so much more than just the few obvious things that this latest Sprint commercial presents (see Top 100 Treo & Centro Software Gold List) but it’s nonetheless great to see that the Centro smartphone evidently continues to do extremely well on the Sprint network and that the company is investing in its further promotion.

On another note, yesterday I learned that the Vatican had bought Palm Inc. in an $800 million “cash, stock and souls” transaction hailed by analysts as “a bold bid to reconvert the Catholic Church into the number one mobile operator for communication with God”.

The news was accompanied by the excellent image above in which Pope Benedict XVI proudly displays his collection of Treo and Centro smartphones to the world.  Asked about the future of Palm during an interview, His Holiness admitted that the development team was in a bit of rut and stated that “Yes, we are going to need a miracle to get it out of the door, but I'm confident we will be able to arrange something on that front.”

Still thinking that our beloved Treo and Centro would now be officially blessed by divine providence I sadly learned that in fact some Gizmoders had had a bit too much to drink the previous night and somewhat embellished the otherwise real news that the Pope will text message thousands of young Catholics on their mobile phones during World Youth Day in Sydney in July…

Treonauts always have a refined sense of humour

Hi Andrew,

I am still waiting for the unlocked Centro to be sold from Palm (hopefully in multiple colors). Any idea when it will be available? Thank you.
