Those of you who’ve been pining for a Palm Centro untethered from Sprint will be glad to know that your GSM precious is here and it’s available in a smooth looking Glacier White.
The Palm Centro from AT&T operates off a next generation version of the Palm OS (5.4.9). It’s a quad band phone with Microsoft Direct Push and Xpress Mail which works with GMail, AOL, Yahoo! and MSN access e-mail in real time. With a Good Mobile messaging application you’re also able to connect to your office’s Blackberry services. Of course, SMS, IM and MMS messaging is available and for those of you with ‘Nextel’ features (read: annoyances), the Palm Centro is Push To Talk enabled.
Full features after the jump.
What this means to you: We’re a little disappointed there’s no integrated GPS, but still glad to see the Centro available on the AT&T network. Now about that GP Orange version…
