Palm Centro Shows up on Sprint – Release Date October 14th
Right now – September 27th at 10.44am – there is just 25,275 minutes until the Palm Centro is officially available. How do I know this? Palm launched a teaser site. The copy reads: “Get a sneak peak at the world’s smallest Palm device that lets you do so much so fast”…blah blah blah. Anyway, the Palm Centro’s release date is October 14th. The release price – which is a little shocking in the good way – is just $99 with a 2-year agreement and a minimum data plan of $25/month. In the past, Palm’s Treo/PDAs were a least a few hundred dollars with a 2-year. The 4 features highlighted on the not-so-exciting teaser site are B-O-R-I-N-G: email, web access, documents, mp3s..zzzzzzzz. The device will come in red or black with a full QWERTY keyboard. I should mention that I do like the ‘Ignore With Text’ button (who wouldn’t want this button with a crazy bitch – see pic below – like that calling), and the ‘oh so iPhone ring/silence switch’.
Update: If you order a Palm Centro direct (official site here) from Palm before 10/31/07, you’ll score a free car charger and free shipping. You can also purchase the Centro with out contract for $399.
