Palm Centro: A step to get Palm back in the race?

The new Palm Centro looks like a hipper version of the Treo. With Palm losing market share in their business phones - and with consumer confidence dying with the announcement of the foleo Palm has decided to tap a new market - the youth.

The Centro is going to be offered at an insanely cheap subsidized tag price of $99.00. It features a full QWERTY keypad, touch screen. and the ol’ faithful Palm OS. So what’s Palm trying to do? With a total tag price of $600.00, they’re trying to bring back the duo device configuration which was very popular back in the early 2000’s. With $600.00 you get two devices instead of one — the new Centro and the Foleo.
