Palm has announced that the one-millionth Centro has been sold since the device debuted last fall. Shipping in 10 countries currently, and from two wireless carriers in the U.S., it has clearly found a market among those looking for an accessible, low-cost smartphone.
Featured on the Sprint and AT&T networks in the US, the $99 (w/contract) Centro has been "flying off the shelves" according to Brodie Keast, senior vice president of marketing for Palm, Inc.. The Centro is aimed to be released in more countries and carriers in the coming months to continue this momentum.
Obsidian Black Available on AT&T
In addition the the sales milestone, Palm also has announced the availability of the Obsidian Black Centro for AT&T. Available in this carriers’ retail stores and online at the Palm webstore, the Obsidian Black Centro will be sold alongside the Glacier White model already available.
More About the Palm Centro
The Centro is one of the smallest and lightest smartphones Palm has ever offered. Nevertheless, it still includes a full QWERTY keyboard and a 320 by 320 pixel touchscreen.
Sprint’s version of this device offers EV-DO, but the GSM one does not offer support for 3G. Instead, the 2.5G standard EDGE is as fast as it goes.
It is 10.7 cm tall, 5.4 cm wide, and 1.8 cm thick; it weighs 119 g.
This model has a microSD card slot, Bluetooth, and a 1.3 MP camera.
