Palm Centro Leak

Palm's frequently leaked "Gandolf" may actually be targeted at youth rather than a direct sequel to the Treo, according to leaked details of a presentation to Sprint financial backers and the media. The silver and white handset will reportedly be known as the Centro and is consciously designed for a younger audience that might be buying its first smartphone and does not need the cost or the size of the Treo. The design will be Palm's smallest to date while still offering the full QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen of its larger phones. Its appearance is very close if not exact to early photos, according to the report.

The version demonstrated would support EVDO versus the GSM model known to be coming to Vodafone and would therefore support Sprint's 3G network, which would now be all but confirmed as one of the Centro's first American providers. Other rumored hardware details of the phone such as Bluetooth and a camera were not confirmed. Prices were also absent but should be below that of the already low-cost Treo 680, which sells for $200 with a two-year contract. [via Mobility Today]
