Palm Launches Centro

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

Palm announced that it will make the Palm Centro smartphone available to StarHub mobile customers in Singapore. This follows an announcement last week of the Centro's availability in Mexico through the mobile services of TelCel and Movistar. So far, the Centro has sold a million units in 6 months.

I'm eagerly awaiting the Centro's launch in the Philippines. The Centro isn't cutting-edge technology anymore, owing to the fact that it's connectivity is limited to EDGE networks and it still uses the now aging Palm OS 5.4 (Garnet). However, I think it still provides excellent value to first-time smartphone buyers and fans of Palm products. I just hope that when they do introduce it in the Philippines, they'll maintain the low price. A low price point will spur wide adoption in the now crowded smartphone market segment.
