Affordable - And, at $99.99 with a two-year Sprint contract, the Centro is Palm's least costly model yet.

NOTE: Sprint only has 90 days exclusive on selling the Centro, so you can pick up your centro from other carriers such as Verizon Wireless, the country's largest CDMA/EV-DO carrier, and maybe Alltel, when Sprint's exclusivity period ends

This smartphone is clearly targeted at the youth market, 95 percent of the total mobile phone market.

Connectivity - Sprints CDMA cellular network supports high-speed cellular-broadband EV-DO data network. Dial-up-networking is via Bluetooth to use the Centro to access the Web or corporate network. Bluetooth can also be used to connect to other peripheral devices such as hands-free kits, wireless headsets, and GPS devices.

Storage - Centro comes standard with 64M of internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 4GB additional memory in a single expansion card.

Media - still digital and video using a 1.3 megapixel 2x digital zoom digital camera. Bundled Pocket Tunes Deluxe software allows you to listen to DRM-protected audio.

Email - Centro and Sprint provide a great messaging bundle with support for Microsoft Direct Push e-mail using the smartphone's VersaMail application, meaning you can access AOL, MSN, Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo! accounts.

Messaging - Palm's threaded SMS messaging client as well as additional support for multimedia messaging and AIM, Yahoo, and Windows Live instant messaging.

Applications - standard Palm OS applications and bundled software including the Blazer Web browser and DataViz' Documents to Go Professional 10 mobile office suite.
