>> Hi, I'm Bonnie Cha, senior editor at cnet.com, and
today we have your first look at the Palm Central. 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 because the 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 is
really, really cramped. It's pretty small. I have
small fingers and even I had problems typing out
messages on it. Otherwise, you've got a 1.3 mega pixel
camera on the back, you've got the advantage of a touch
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, e-mail, and it's also
EVDO support. It's a great value at $99, it's available
through Sprint with a two-year contract. So I wouldn't
say it's the best device for a business on user, but if
you're looking for your first smart phone or just want a
really easy device, the Palm Central is a really good
device. This is Bonnie Cha, and this has been your
first look at the Palm Central.
