Manufacturer Palm has unveiled a new black smartphone called Centro designed to help people manage their social and professional lives together.
Centro has voice, text, email, web, contact and calendar capabilities, a full-colour touch screen and full keyboard.
Users can keep track of social engagements, check sports results, stay on top of the latest news, access music and get directions on Google Maps.
‘The combination of keyboard, touch screen and Palm’s trademark ease of use makes Centro intuitive to use,’ said vice president Roy Bedlow.
‘Consumers who are thinking about stepping up to use a smartphone will find Centro the perfect first choice, offering so many ways to keep in touch.’
Centro’s touch screen and full qwerty keyboard, combined with the simplicity of Palm OS, make it easy to use, with key features such as one-touch speakerphone, conference calling, ignore a call with text messaging and Bluetooth connectivity.
The full keyboard makes typing complete messages fast and easy when sending text, pictures, audio and video clips. Plus, Centro keeps all conversations in a chat-style view, just like Instant Messaging, so users can see the entire conversation unfold.
Pocket Tunes on Centro lets users sideload songs and manage music, audio books and videos easily.
