Pink Palm Centro for Sprint Sprint

Hey ladies (and gentlemen, too, don't mean to discriminate), Sprint and Palm have just released a powder pink version of the Palm Centro smartphone if the current red and black models don't tickle your fancy. It's available starting today for the same bargain price of $99.99 with a two-year contract and after rebates and discounts, and has all the features of the original release, including Palm OS 5.4.9, EV-DO, and Bluetooth. For those of you who don't know, the Centro is Palm's smallest and lightest smartphone and really takes aim at the first-time buyer with its compact design, affordable price, and ease of use. And while not revolutionary, Palm's strategy seems to be working as the Centro has been well received by customers.

In other Palm news, several blog sites, including Palm Infocenter and Engadget Mobile, are reporting that AT&T will be the next carrier in line to get the Palm Centro once Sprint's exclusive is up on the device. Word on the street is that the AT&T version will be white. Stay tuned.
