Bell adds Palm Centro

Bell announced on Monday it has added the Palm Centro smartphone to the range of phones on its network. Bell's edition of the PalmOS smartphone will be available in black and carry 128MB of onboard storage. The Centro will include Facebook for Palm and Google Maps with My Location feature that will approximate user's locations in areas with enough cellular coverage. Users will be able to access personal and work e-mail with Exchange support. Documents such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF files can all be opened and edited on the Centro.

The handset is otherwise close to its reference version and carries the same 1.3-megapixel camera, EVDO data, and hybrid touchscreen plus keyboard input. In addition to onboard storage, there is a microSD card slot for adding up to 4GB more. Bell has not announced pricing for the Centro, and the handset has not yet shown up on the provider's web store.
