Palm Centro Blue for ATT
Palm today revealed that AT&T will get a third color option for the Centro as well as promo to help push the entry smartphone. The handset will now come in a light blue to match the black and white versions already available at the carrier; the phone remains the same with a 1.3-megapixel camera, EDGE data, and microSD storage as its core features. AT&T starts carrying the new model Friday at the same $100 price with contract as existing models.
Additionally, Palm also hints at a back-to-school promo that should start the same day and last through September 20th, suggesting a discount for the device for at least students. A company official declines to provide full details but is announcing the promo just as the more expensive iPhone 3G goes on sale in the US.
