The overall review was rather negative…even though the box is said to sell by the cartload. How does that go together?
I personally thank everyone who talked back about how he was happy with his Centro – comments are what keeps sites such as this one alive. However, I still stick don’t like the box…read on to find out more.
Palm’s Centro sells very well…to teenagers, soccer moms and other people who aren’t interested in the technology behind phones. For them, the Centro is interesting because of the keyboard that speeds up typing – any everything else is in the lands of dragons.
For them, the Centro is ideal. However, for people who really stress their handheld with things like video playback, spreadsheets, PDF’s,.. – the device IMHO is too small. People who currently have a Treo should carefully evaluate the Centro’s size – as sweet as the small size may appear, as annoying it becomes when using the box for an extended period of time.
The Centro definitely is a great device – but it’s not a great device for a power user like me. And this is what I tried to express in the review…not more, not less…
But this isn’t the end of our Centro coverage – stay tuned for a bunch of interviews with leading developers!
