Palm Centro

 

If you are looking for a smartphone that will let you make calls, send text messages, chat and do a bit of browsing, the Palm Centro co

With a price tag of Rs 13,990, we would say the Palm Centro is a deal. Its appeal is universal; it's not targeted only at hardcore businessmen. With such an attractive price and with loads of freeware available online, we recommend a buy. If you're...

Palm Centro - cobalt blue (Verizon Wireless)

 

Despite some minor shortcomings, the Palm Centro offers Verizon Wireless customers an easy-to-use, affordable, and solid performing smartphone that's perfect for the first-time buyer or anyone on a budget.

The Palm Centro offers ease of use, a compact design, and a solid feature set at an affordable price. The smartphone is also EV-DO capable and offers good call quality

The Centro's keyboard is small and cramped. There's no support for stereo Bluetooth headsets

Expert review by:

Palm Centro

 

Not the flashiest phone around, but its jaw-dropping price, ease of use and vast software ecosystem, make it a good choice for first time smartphone buyers and Palm OS afficionados alike.

Look at the price ma!, Palm OS is light and easy to use, Good software inclusions, Plenty of third party software apps available

No 3G or HSDPA, Thumb-board not for everyone, Camera is rudimentary, Looks are polarising, Unlocking from Telstra adds AU$100

Palm Centro PDA Phone (AT&T)

 

This sporty, slimmer variant of the Treo is available on the AT&T network.

Petite, attractive design ; Excellent call quality and battery life

Lacks Wi-Fi and GPS ; Plastic case feels a bit fragile

Expert review by:

Palm Palm Centro (AT&T)

 

The Palm Centro is an attractive option not just for Palm devotees but also for anyone seeking an inexpensive smart phone with a QWERTY keyboard. Previously, we tested a Centro available on the Sprint network; the version reviewed here is available...

Petite, attractive design ; Excellent call quality and battery life

Lacks Wi-Fi and GPS ; Plastic case feels a bit fragile

A sporty, slimmer variant of the Treo; its battery lasted longer on AT&T's GSM network than on Sprint's CDMA network.

Expert review by:

Palm GSM Centro Smartphone

 

The Palm Centro is like the friend you call when you need to be bailed out of jail: Reliable, smart and capable of getting the job done. But its dependable

Talk to your buddies or coworkers walkie-talkie-style. More compact than its older Treo cousins. Healthy portion of third-party applications from medical databases to games

No WiFi or integrated GPS (a Bluetooth GPS receiver is optional). Short three-hour battery life. The 1.3-megapixel camera captured crap-quality photos. Plastic housing feels like it could be busted by a strong wind

Expert review by:

Palm Centro

 

You might think the Palm Centro just puts lipstick on a pig-the pig being Palm's creaky, antiquated operating system-but dang if this little smartphone doesn't

The Palm OS may be old, but it's still fast, easy to use, and compatible with tons of awesome apps. All the power of a Treo with less of the bulk (and expense). Bundled software keeps you productive, connected, and entertained

Zero innovation: It's really just a smaller, more affordable Treo. Battery life sucks: Just 3.5 hours of talk time. Cramped keyboard not for the fat of finger. Stereo Bluetooth not supported out of the box-it requires third-party software

Expert review by:

Palm Centro ( AT&T)

 

It's no secret that Palm has been struggling of late to keep up with the smartphone competition. A lack of innovation and a stale operating system is partly to blame. However, the company made a bit of a comeback with its Palm Centro device, which...

The Palm Centro for AT&T offers users an affordable and easy-to-use smartphone. The compact handset also features Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and a full productivity suite with push e-mail capabilities.

The Centro for AT&T lacks 3G and doesn't support stereo Bluetooth headsets. Also, the QWERTY keyboard is tiny.

Despite a few misses, the Palm Centro for AT&T is a solid, easy-to-use, and affordable smartphone for first-time buyers.

AT&T Palm Centro gets reviewed

 

Now that the GSM Palm Centro has finally landed on AT&T, it's time to check in with the reviewers to see if the EDGE-only model is still worth the $99 -- and for the most part, it seems like it is. Everyone agrees with us that the green keys ...

Palm Centro from AT&T - Review of the Palm Centro from AT&T

 

The Centro still has a small keyboard, but AT&T customers looking for an easy-to-use smart phone should be satisfied.

Compact design, Easy to use, Bargain priced, Decent battery life

No stereo Bluetooth, Lacks 3G data, Cramped keyboard, Annoying memory card slot, No stereo Bluetooth

Product Specifications

Now you can use just one device - instead of many - to get it all done. The Treo 600 smartphone from palmOne seamlessly combines a full-featured mobile phone and Palm Powered organizer with wireless email and text messaging, web browsing and even a digital camera - all in one device that's so small it fits right in your pocket. Plus, because everything is totally integrated - including the full QWERTY keyboard - it's amazingly easy to use. The Treo 600 smartphone helps you find freedom from your desk by keeping you connected in all kinds of ways. Need to call a colleague? Just dial from your contacts list. Check email? Whether you need access to your work email or just want to keep on top of your many personal email accounts, there are a variety of easy-to-use and install email solutions available for the Treo 600 that can get you out of the office without taking you out of the loop. With the Treo 600 smartphone, not only do you have everything you need - it's all incredibly easy to use. That's because everything is totally integrated, so you can check your calendar while talking on the phone, dial calls directly from your contacts list, or take a picture and email it to a friend - without having to jump through hoops. And with new features like the 5-way navigation button and the Favorites screen, you can get to whatever you're looking for - all with one hand tied behind your back. The built-in QWERTY keyboard makes entering text and accessing information fast and familiar - perfect for messaging and a must have for email. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. You can also dial a phone number just by typing someone's initials - or their number, using numbered keys. Plus, special shortcuts let you launch up to 25 applications with the press of a letter. But don't let the keyboard's small size fool you. Thanks to specially designed dome-shaped keys, text entry is super easy - even for folks with two left thumbs. Take a picture with the built-in camera, view it on your color screen or send it to a friend. It's that easy. Want to customize your Treo 600 smartphone? Just use the SD/MMC expansion slot to add memory, software applications or content like ebooks. Because the Treo 600 smartphone runs the popular Palm OS, there are thousands of software applications you can download and use - like MP3 players, so you can have music wherever you go. This Treo 600 is intended for AT&T activation only.
