CNET First Look
Palm CentroThe Palm Centro isn't the innovative product we were looking for from the company, but with its slimmer size, ease of use, and affordable price tag, the Centro is a good option for those looking for their first smartphone.
[ music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at CNET.com, and today we have your first look at the Palm Centro. This is Palm's first non Trio, and it's also the smallest and lightest smart phone they've put out, which is a good thing cause a Trio is pretty bulky, and lagging behind the competition a little bit. Comes in black and red, and it is nice and light, kind of feels toy-like actually. And the one downside is the keyboard's really, really cramped, it's pretty small even. I have small fingers and even I had problems typing out messages on it. Otherwise you've got a one point three megapixel on the camera on the back, you've got the advantage of a text screen, so you can navigate using the buttons, or just tapping the screen, which is really nice. It's got everything a Trio has, Bluetooth, email, and it's also EVDO support. It's a great value at ninety nine dollars. It's available through Sprint with a two year contract. So I wouldn't say it's the best device for a business user, but if you're looking for your first smart phone, or just want a really easy device, Palm Centro is a good choice.
