Palm Centro Review

SlashPhone
19 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Late last month, Palm launched their new multimedia smartphone, the Centro, which joins their perennially popular Treo line. Despite arguably more powerful, more flexible rivals, Palm’s handsets continue to curry favour among business-users who prize efficiency of use over the whiz-bang complexity...

Palm Centro (Verizon Wireless)

PC Magazine
10 November 2008
  • Conclusion: The Verizon version of Palm's best-selling Centro is a virtual clone of the 3G-capable Sprint version, giving subscribers a low-cost, quality smartphone that's a powerful alternative to most feature phones at this price—even if the company has already declared its OS dead.
  • Pros: Good voice quality. 3G support. Excellent PIM and document-editing features. Works well with both PCs and Macs.
  • Cons: No Wi-Fi, GPS. Bluetooth. No IM client. Palm OS is on life support.

Palm Centro (Sprint)

PC Magazine
4 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Call it "My First Smartphone." With the Palm Centro—basically a Treo 755p crammed into a smaller case—price is its best selling point. This is the most smartphone you can get for $99 with a service contract.
  • Pros: Palm OS is fast and easy to use. Good phone. Lots of IM and e-mail options.
  • Cons: Buggy. Tiny, cramped keyboard. Poor headset support.

Palm Centro (AT&T)

PC Magazine
4 November 2008
  • Conclusion: The Centro for AT&T sacrifices the Sprint version's high-speed data access, but you get more battery life—though not quite enough. Nonetheless, the low price makes it a good first smartphone—or a poor man's iPhone.
  • Pros: High-resolution touch screen. Works well with both PCs and Macs. Good voice quality.
  • Cons: Palm OS is outdated. No 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, or stereo Bluetooth. Battery life is on the low side for GSM.

25 June 2008
  • Excerpt: The Palm Centro Smartphone is the first smartphone I have actually used so I can't really compare it to others on the market. But what I can say is that being a bit of a techno geek I can understand the usefulness and intricacies of such an item.

  • Pros: Great size, Low price point, Full-featured Palm OS device, Easy to use, Good phone performance
  • Cons: Palm OS is stable, but boring, Lack of 3G data

Palm Centro

1 May 2008
  • Excerpt: The Palm Centro is the latest Palm with their Palm OS, unlike the other models that we’ve tested in the recent past that were based on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile. The initial reaction to the phone is that it seems like a very casual hip-looking phone.
