Palm Centro (Sprint)

PC Magazine
1 October 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 (Verizon Wireless)

PC Magazine
30 August 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 Review

best4reviews.com
23 August 2008
  • Summary: The Centro is a good, easy to use smartphone. Features such as the touch screen, expansion of storage and the ability to get your email on the move go a long way to making this an incredibly desirable product. It's let down though by a sense that the thinking behind it didn't go far enough, to market a mobile to the mid-teens through twenties and not include the ability to turn an mp3 into a ringtone is just shortsighted.
  • Pros: Touch Screen, Full qwerty keyboard, fast mobile web browsing, flight mode, better than average battery life, very expandable via app downloads, loads of accessories available, cheap
  • Cons: Limited amount of included software, screen goes to sleep too quickly, can't actually turn the thing off completely.

  • Excerpt: When the courier came and dropped off the box on my doorstep a short while ago, my brother asked me what I was going to review now. I told him that it was an unlocked Palm Centro. He immediately responded by asking, “Palm still makes cell phones?

Palm Centro AT&T Review

Phone Arena
1 May 2008
  • Conclusion: We still really like the Palm Centro, but prefer the CDMA version for its 3G data. The device feels great in your hand, call performance was admirable and as a smartphone there isn’t anything it can’t do. This phone is aimed at the “tweener” crowd- the 16-29 year olds who have never owned a smartphone- but given the robust support for both multimedia and business applications and the fantastic form-factor this phone should appeal to anyone interested in the Palm OS.
  • 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 Review

1 May 2008
  • Summary: Finally, it comes down to the price of the phone and that's where the Palm Centro has a chance. The phone has an MRP of Rs 13,990. For a similar price, you can easily get Windows Mobile phones with larger screens. In the Centro, you get a proper phone with a proper keypad, a compact but great screen and for a bit of the geek factor--Palm OS, which is still uncommon in India.

Palm Centro Review

Digitaltrends
5 December 2007
  • Conclusion: The Palm Centro is a good Smartphone for the average consumer, but not – ironically enough – physically large enough for the hardcore Palm acolytes. The tiny keyboard poses a real problem. That aside, the multimedia qualities – fast web, excellent camera and solid music capabilities – make it a good buy for those looking for a compact Smartphone.
  • Pros: Light and compact, easy setup; solid Internet and music access; nice camera
  • Cons: Tiny keys; strange control stick; small screen for stylus
