Shortly after Palm announced the availability of the Centro in Europe, AT&T announced that it has begun selling the entry-level smartphone for $99.99. The Centro first launched with Sprint in the United States. AT&T says the Centro is the first Palm OS product to launch with AT&T services, such as XM Radio Mobile, Push to Talk and MusicID.
The smallest and lightest Palm product to date, the Centro will be available from AT&T immediately in “glacier white” with green keypad accents, and, in approximately one month, AT&T will debut a second color, “obsidian black.”
“The demand for crossover devices is skyrocketing, and the Centro hits a sweet spot for many customers looking for a QWERTY device with a solid suite of messaging and multimedia features,” said Michael Woodward, vice president of Business Mobility Products for AT&T’s wireless unit, in a statement. “At a great price that can be coupled with a variety of AT&T’s messaging and data options, we are thrilled to offer Centro to our 70.1 million customers.”
