Palm Centros on $199 sale

Palm is now offering unlocked GSM Centro smartphones for $199 in cobalt blue, ruby red or glacier white. The aging handset was first spotted in the summer of 2007, and it hasn't changed since. The handset sports a full QWERTY keyboard with rubber buttons, 64MB or 128MB of built-in storage space and a 320x320 pixel display. A microSD card slot lets users add 4GB of storage space to the handset.

Otherwise, there is a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth support and e-mail synchronization capabilities with multiple e-mail accounts. A web browser is built-in, as is support for Google Maps, Microsoft Office and PDF files.

While Palm has not said why it's offering the sale on the device, it is likely to make room for the upcoming and much-awaited Palm Pre smartphone. [via GearLog]
