Palm Centro Review
We were very pleased with the call quality of the Centro. On both our end as well as the caller’s, voices were clear and rich, and even in fringe areas we were able to hold a conversation. The speakerphone performance was equally satisfying, and while users could tell we were using it they didn’t have any complaints about the quality. On our end it was loud and clear without any distortion. Battery life was rated for 210 minutes and we were able to achieve 213 minutes. Standby time is a more than generous 300 hours.
Plain and simple, we really like the Palm Centro. The device feels great in your hand, call performance was admirable and as a smartphone there isn’t anything it can’t do. This phone is aimed at the “tweener” crowd- the 16-29 crowd who has never owned a smartphone- but given the robust support for both multimedia and business applications and the fantastic form-factor we expect this phone to appeal to anyone interested in the Palm OS. Oh, and the $99 pricetag might draw in a few users as well.
