Palm Releases Centro in Electric Blue

The Palm Centro is being refreshed in the eyes of potential consumers by adding a new color to the AT&T lineup. The Electric Blue version will go on sale later this week through AT&T outlets only. The current color choice — white with green keys — will still be available.

The Centro is Palm’s fastest selling smartphone in its history with over 2 million devices sold through Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon. An unlocked version is also available from the Palm website for those who would like to use this smartphone on GSM carriers that have not officially released it.
