New Electric Blue Centro Color Offered for AT&T

Electric Blue CentroDespite the fact that a version of Palm's Centro smartphone has been available since February for the AT&T GSM network, users have been offered the wide range of colors hue available to their Sprint CDMA Centro brethren. Centro owners on AT&T been forced to accept a launch color scheme of Glacial White with a rather garish lime green dial pad, followed by a more recent black version that became available in late March after the white version's debut.

For AT&T users, relief is now at hand with the immediate availability of a new "electric blue" Centro that is certain to find favor amongst buyers shunning the white version. As of this writing,'s AT&T Centro checkout page lists the color as "coming soon" with the same $99.99 price tag as the other color offerings. Palm's blog states the new color will be available in AT&T stores and online at begining this Friday.

Judging by the photos on, this version is more of a bright teal blue somewhat reminiscent of the old Palm Zire 71 instead of the subdued navy blue seen on the recent Verizon Centro and in Mexico.

None of these new Centro color offerings should come as much of a surprise, what with the device's continued popularity and carrier acceptance some 9 months after its debut and a veritable rainbow of Centro colors previewed on Palm's website earlier this year.

the irony

It feels like kicking a puppy to point it out, but Friday Apple launches the iPhone 2.0, and Palm launches a blue Centro. Ouch.

Indeed. Perhaps they should have just called the "Cobalt Blue" Centro as a parting shot to the fanbase and then just closed up shop?

'Garish' Green?

I acutally really like the the Lime Green on the AT&T phone. I think the only thing that would be better is a black bodied phone with the Lime Green. Gaudy? Yes!

Patience, Palm's innovation takes time. Do you realize how much time and planning went into the electric blue project? Once the mad euphoria amongst the Palm zealots dies down from this announcement Palm will definitely be back in the lab mixing colors.

You mean back in 2000?

Well, ok then - this explains it.

How many resources were devoted to this 'revolutionary' project of releasing yet another crayon color in Palm's Fisher-Price phone line vs. fixing up the bugs (including incompatibility with Googlemaps' MyLocation) in the current $650.00 Treos?

It's no wonder Apple and Crackberry are eating Palm's lunch with their relatively sub-par phones.

I Like It!

First time I ever liked one of the dumb colors.

Well, it looks kinda childish. Of course.

Should'a called it "Swansong Blue."
