AT&T brings GSM-based Palm Centro to US

updated 08:05 am EST, Tue February 19, 2008

Palm Centro at ATT

AT&T this morning became the first North American GSM carrier to pick up the Centro, Palm's first non-Treo Palm smartphone in years. Already available through Sprint in CDMA form, the AT&T model switches to a unique white color scheme but switches to slower EDGE technology for data instead of EVDO. The phone nonetheless makes use of its Internet access with support for AT&T's music services and access to streaming versions of a collection of XM Satellite Radio channels. AT&T's push-to-talk feature is also available.

The smartphone is otherwise similar to the Sprint version and ships with a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth audio, and a microSD slot that holds up to 4GB of data. AT&T matches Sprint's own pricing and sells the Centro for $100 with a two-year contract or $350 for contract-free service.
