Gadget Pr0n: Palm Centro

Technology moves and it moves fast. One day you’re feeling like hot stuff because you’re the only guy strutting around with a beige cell phone that’s the size of a brick and the next day all of your friends are laughing at you because you’ve got no idea what a Bluetooth headset is.

Nobody wants to get left behind, but with new technological marvels hitting store shelves every day, how are you supposed to figure out what smart phone is right for you or which personal media player won’t make you look like a total dork? There’s only one way, watching Gadget Pr0n with the only people who can keep you from being left in the digital dust.

Up for review today is the Palm Centro.

Palm Centro

  • It has smartphone features like e-mail, internet, IM, etc. through the EV-DO Network
  • On Demand News from Sprint
  • Full touchscreen and keyboard
  • Bluetooth
  • Micro SD expansion slot
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • Keyboard is squished and hard to type
  • Touchscreen is not intuitive
  • Setting up versamail on the palm is difficult
  • Looks and feels like a toy
  • 4” high and 2” wide and 4.2 oz
  • Red color screams “My first phone,” though it comes in black
  • Geeks won’t like it even though they liked the original treo
  • Sprint’s superior network could be a reason to buy it, because the Centro is $100 and the iPhone is $400.
  • Sprint so heavily brands their site that you may end up spending the money you save on data plans and accessories
  • Bottom line, spend the extra $300 and grab an iPhone
