Palm, Inc. has just announced that Sprint’s version of the Centro will soon be available in two new colors: olive green and vibrant rose.
The Centro has been available from Sprint for about a year now, and one of the best ways of spurring sales on older models is offering them in new colors.
But Palm and Sprint are doing a bit more and improving the hardware, too. They are increasing the internal storage capacity to 128 MB, twice the storage of the original Centro for Sprint.
In addition, these Palm OS smartphones will feature a soft-touch finish that is intended to feel smooth and comfortable in the hand.
The olive green and vibrant rose Centro smartphones will be available as early as October 19 at select retail locations. Beginning November 2, they will be in Sprint Stores, consumer and business sales channels, and online at www.sprint.com/Centro and the Palm Store.
The new colors will be available for a special promotional price — $80 with a two-year subscriber agreement and $100 mail-in rebate and $25 or higher data add-on or Everything plan with data — through January 10, 2009.
