Palm Centro Reviewed at OnCentro.com

For those of you who don’t know it yet, we have another site in our network, OnCentro.com, its dedicated to the new Palm Centro that has been released exclusively on Sprint’s network for 90 days. They won’t stop selling them after 90 days, but that’s when the exclusivity ends. Well, we got our hands on one of this nifty little devices and reviewed it.

So lets run through it real quick, it has a QWERTY keyboard, a touchscreen with stylus, a microSD card slot that supports up to 4GB of storage, a 1.3MP camera, and EV-DO. Furthermore its available in multiple colors, has an included messaging app, works with Sprint’s OnDemand service, and all that fits into a 4.3x2.1x.74-inch package.

New Alltel phones coming your way

New Alltel phones coming your way

Alltel is coming out with some new phones soon, there’s something from Palm, RIM, Motorola, and UTStarcom. If you just got Alltel coverage in your area but have been waiting for some better handsets or if you have been with them for a while and just want a new handset, it’s your lucky day.

First off is the Treo 755p, not really all that new of a device, but its good, and it clearly aimed at the business people. However the BlackBerry Pearl 2 or 8130 should open some eyes.

Treo 500v Reviewed

Treo 500v Reviewed

The Treo 500v was released on the Vodafone network very recently, and now its been reviewed. They only really had 3 things bad to say about it.

The first was that they were still using the 2.5mm headphone jack instead of the 3.5mm one that’s pretty standard. The second was the loss of the audio off switch on the top of most Treo’s. the third was that although the keyboard was usable, it was still pretty small.

Treo 500 smartphone unboxed

Treo 500 smartphone unboxed

Perhaps it's the slightly Fisher-Price look to the front panel; perhaps it's an inherent distrust of overtly soap-shaped objects after a particularly disturbing prison themed nightmare... either way, I'm not quite managing to get excited about Palm's latest Treo, the 500.  Still, from the sound of it I'm the one missing out; the 500 has already whipped up some interest in what the company has managed to achieve despite using the Windows Mobile OS, and Andrew over at Treonauts has done a good job of highlighting the physical improvements in his unboxing feature of the 500v Vodafone version.

Rumor: Palm Treo 500 due out soon, not called Gandolf

Rumor: Palm Treo 500 due out soon, not called Gandolf

So the device that was reportedly called the Gandolf, is now rumored to be officially known as the Treo 500, or the Treo 500v on the Vodafone network it is said to be hitting on September 12th. Personally I thin it looks exactly like the Centro with a couple minor differences, but apparently it’s a whole other device.

Apparently it will have 3G as in UMTS, not HSDPA and will feature Windows Mobile 6 not a Palm OS. It will also be missing the touchscreen which is apparently why a phone with seemingly better features than the Treo 750 gets the lower model number of the 500.

Palm Centro On Sprint

Palm Centro On Sprint

The Palm Centro has been known by at least two other names, the “Gandolf” and the “Treo 800”. The device is in fact a tiny Treo running Palm OS and is being called the “first truly new Treo form factor in years”.

Sprint is being coy and not picking a name for the device just yet, just as well, they have got to do their research on what works best, but I like the Palm Centro, its still kind of edgy, but keeps that professional air about it. However the gentleman at that attended the show saw and app on the home screen entitled “About Centro” leading me to beleive they are going with the Palm Centro.

Palm’s next-gen 3G Treo details emerge

Palm’s next-gen 3G Treo details emerge

The information on Palm's wizard-themed Gandalf smartphone continues to drip out, like warm molasses from the mouth of a drunken child, and it looks like its official name will be the far less magical Treo 500.  A 3G handset using HSDPA and Bluetooth 2.0, there'll be two main differentiations - a Windows Mobile 6 version and a non-touchscreen alternative running a new incarnation of the Palm OS - and then a number of colour options.

Treo 750 gets general European release

Treo 750 gets general European release

Fresh from Palm comes news that the Treo 750, previously only available through specific carriers in Europe, will now be on sale in general phone stores on any network, as well as direct from Palm's own website.

If you read SlashPhone's review of the 750v, the Vodafone UK-branded version, then you'll know that it's a great phone with some excellent added features by Palm that makes the Windows Mobile 5.0 OS even easier to use.  I know there are plenty of people who'd like to upgrade to this 3G, UMTS/HSDPA smartphone, and now they'll be able to do so without needing to leave their operator.
