Centro in Sprint Promos
Virtually all of Sprint's upcoming smartphones for the fall have been shown in formal photography today, including the anticipated Palm Centro. A new leak confirms that the Centro will be available within the last three months of the year and should include a 1.3-megapixel camera and touchscreen. It should also bring along the majority of Sprint's streaming and downloadable video services plus instant messaging and mail. An exact price is still absent from the product sheet but is still rumored to reach $99 with a two-year contract.
Other product sheets have confirmed two extra devices, including a CDMA version of the HTC Touch, which brings EVDO (including the option of faster Revision A) as well as access to Sprint's Music Store and TV services to the touchscreen phone that launched in Europe this spring. The LG Rumor will be the company's primary messaging phone for the end of 2007 and will also feature a 1.3-megapixel camera, EVDO, and microSD support with storage up to 4GB. Both these phones will be due in the last quarter of the year but also haven't received pricing, but should be accompanied by the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 with GPS and a version of the Treo 755p.
