Sprint Palm Centro With New Colors & Double Memory

Palm Announces Centro smartphone for Sprint Available With 128MB Memory In Two New Soft-Touch Colors - Olive green and Vibrant rose - Starting Oct. 19 From $79.99

Centro Sprint New Colors

Following the success of its Centro smartphone and in preparation for the holidays, Palm today announced that the Centro smartphone for Sprint will become available in two new soft-touch colors – Olive green and Vibrant rose – as early as Oct. 19 at select retail locations, and beginning Nov. 2 in Sprint Stores, consumer and business sales channels, and online for as low as $79.99.

More importantly, Palm also announced that it has DOUBLED the available memory on these Sprint Centro smartphones to 128MB (up from 64MB on existing models) and naturally also still leaving the ability to add up to 8GB more with a microSD card

Additionally, these new Sprint Centro smartphones will now have the new excellent Facebook for Palm application (screenshots above) and Google Maps with the My Location feature pre-installed on the device.  Facebook for Palm lets users connect with friends, respond to messages, upload photos and videos, receive status updates, browse friends' profiles and send out new friend requests -- all right from their Centro.  And with Google Maps' new My Location feature, Centro knows where the user is and what's close by, so customers can find nearby restaurants, get directions, or see updated traffic reports.

Although I’m not a fashionista, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute added: "We're seeing fashion designers gravitate toward olive and rose tones, as forecasted in the PANTONE Fashion Color Reports for Fall 2008 and Spring 2009.  Olive green and Vibrant rose are both strong fashion colors, offering a sense of sophistication and elegance. These hues are classic colors, with the longevity to translate from season to season."  

Pricing and Availability

The new colors will be available for a special promotional price -- as low as $79.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement and $100 mail-in rebate and $25 or higher data add-on or Everything plan with data -- through Jan. 10, 2009.

New Centro Accessories

Palm also announced that it is introducing (available in November) several custom-designed Centro accessories (but has not yet provided images of these) that are simple and lightweight:

-- Centro Side Case -- This smart and elegant leather side case has white stitching, smooth microfiber lining to help protect the phone, a magnetic closure and an attached belt clip.

-- Centro Leather Flip Case -- The new Centro leather flip case lets users access Centro's touch screen, keyboard and buttons while it's snapped safely inside the case. It flips open for talking and using the phone, and comes with an array of liner and stitching colors to choose from -- black, green, rose or blue..

-- Vehicle Power Adapter -- The new vehicle power adapter for Centro is small and sleek, and includes a USB-to-microUSB cable and a multi-connector adapter (microUSB to multi-connector).

That's a lot of internal storage for a Palm OS type device, while still maintaining a reasonable price point. Too bad the Centro doesn't have the WiFi or GPS ability built in.

Why Cant Palm come out with a black centro with the soft touch finish. I would buy it in a heartbeat.

why not a palm centro w/ 128mb or more, that looks like a treo pro, and with wifi and gps, too?

is this asking for too much?

"why not a palm centro w/ 128mb or more, that looks like a treo pro, and with wifi and gps, too?

For the moment, yes. Next year, once Palm is ready to unveil Nova, they can do something like what you're describing. What they'll choose to do, of course, is still TBA.

In the meantime, as I've said before, they couldn't put in the WiFi, GPS, or 3G--which would leave them essentially with a Centro in a slightly different form factor. Palm would have great difficulty differentiating them (in terms of marketing) and the various carriers would end up picking one or the other--just the way if you look, there are all sorts of iPhone competitors out there that AT&T refuses to pick up because they're too similar to the iPhone. (In other countries, as the saying goes, YMMV.)
