Two Million Centro Smartphones Sold!

Palm Centro Smartphone Reaches 2.0 Million Units Sales Milestone & Continues to Gain Momentum + Celebrate With 10% Off Special

Barely four months after announcing sales of 1.0 Million Centro smartphones, Palm today said it has added a cool extra million with its two-millionth Centro smartphone just out of the warehouse…

This seems to confirm that the Centro (see my review) priced at only $99 is experiencing growing momentum (six months to reach first million and only four months to reach second) with traditional mobile phone users who want to move up to a phone that offers much more functionality.  Palm is now offering Centro in more than 25 countries in North America, South America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Centro Smartphone Sales

“Consumers are ready to do more on their mobile phone, and Centro has struck a chord around the world,” said Brodie Keast, senior vice president of marketing for Palm, Inc. “Centro has everything a person needs to stay connected with everyone who is important to them -- and at a price point and size that make smartphones more attractive to a much wider audience.”

Now available from almost 20 carriers worldwide, including the three largest carriers in the United States, Centro has reached more young adults and women, as well as a broader range of household income, than any prior Palm smartphone. It offers customers an affordable, simple and fun option for staying connected and doing more with their mobile phones.

The Centro smartphone’s full QWERTY keyboard and color touch screen make it easy to quickly type text messages, respond to emails, start instant message conversations, browse the web and more. It offers all of the great organizer functionality for which Palm is renowned, such as a detailed and integrated contacts list and a simple and handy calendar for juggling business meetings and get-togethers with friends. Centro lets users “sideload” songs and manage music, audio books and videos easily, as well as shoot pictures or videos with the built-in digital camera.

When will next version be released?

www.treonauts.com loses more and more credibility...

2 million phones is a decline in Palm sales.

Where was the article about Palm's huge quarterly financial losses?

Nowhere to be seen here, because Andrew will not report news, just hype to promote sales of Palm-related trinkets.

“Consumers are ready to do more on their mobile phone"

Yes, they are ready... on Palm, they are stuck on standby.

iPhone users access web services FORTY-SEVEN TIMES MORE than other smartphone users.

Centro will not save Palm.

This is not TREONAUTS any more it is CENTRONAUTS

"2 million phones is a decline in Palm sales."

Decline from when?

I'm sure Palm have sold more phones in the 10 months since the Centro's launch compared with the 10 months prior to it.

Message to bah--you are too cynical. We should still celebrate the good news about Palm whenever it occurs.

by Andrew | Jul 30, 2008 7:04:18 AM

Bah - two million people now disagree with you... I think it's a pretty good number.

Palm will make a comeback and we'll all be able to properly cheer our Treo (and Quatro) again...

Cheers, A.

"This seems to confirm that the Centro (see my review) priced at only $99 . . ."

I've said it before and since there's no asterisk in the post, here you go:

I seem to recall that Apple sold 1 million iPhones in 3 days. It took Palm 6 months to achieve that number of Centros. I would also like to point out that Palm stock is down 63% over 12 months, it trades for a fraction of it's original IPO price, their revenue is declining, and they are not profitable. Palm could have sold 4 million Centros and they would still lose money.

Apple iPhone 3G sole over 1,000,000 in the first 2 days on sale.

by programmer joe | Aug 11, 2008 11:24:22 AM

How do Palm developers feel about the success of Apple iPhone software store?

More than 60 million downloads in 30 days...

More than 30 million dollars sales in 30 days...

More than $1 million sales EVERY DAY
