Two New Centro Colors Coming to Sprint
Palm's most recent Palm OS smartphone, the Centro, recently passed the 2 million sold mark. According to this SprintUsers forum thread, Palm is about to unleash two new Centro colors to help that device inch closer to 3 million units sold. The new colors are said to be "Rose" and "Green". A reported release date of October 19th is given with no additional details if these colors will be in-store or web-only. Unfortunately, no pictures are available of these refreshed Centros of yet.
In additional Palm Centro news, retail giant Best Buy is continuing their strong push of the Verizon Wireless version of the Centro. This week, ending Saturday the 6th, the Verizon Centro is available at Best Buy in-store for "free" after instant rebates with the signing of a 2yr contract for new customers. Current users eligible for an upgrade can get the Centro for just $59.99. Additionally, Best Buy is giving 500 bonus Reward Zone points with the purchase of the Centro, which works out to at least $10 in the form of an in-store gift certificate mailed to members.
