The Palm Centro is the smallest and cheapest Palm yet. This is basically a Palm Treo in a smaller, sleeker package. It runs the Palm OS, which has been criticized as being old, but it opens applications instantly and it does what it does well. The Centro fits in the hand well, and even though Palm has shrunk it down to lillipution size (for a smart phone), they did manage to sqeeze in a full QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard is tiny, but the keys are a single sheet rubber bubble and feel great to type on. It is surprisingly accurate and easy to use for such a small device. Reception is not a problem- I am able to pick up full signals in areas would my old phone would drop calls. Callers are able to understand me well. Ring tones are loud and can be easily silenced with the switch at the top of the Centro. The phone features a nice 1.3 megapixel camera and a camcorder. It also comes pre-loaded with pTunes, making this a great phone for multimedia fans. Sprint Mobile email is included, so users can check multiple email accounts, including Yahoo, Hotmail and gMail at the touch a button. Palm has marketed this to young people looking for their first smart phone, but with the small size and cheap price, it would be a great addition for all but the most demanding smart phone users.
