Palm Centro coming to Verizon this Friday [UPDATED]

Verizon subscribers eager to get their hands on Palm’s Centro smartphone should be able to get their fix this Friday.

Assuming the specs will be more or less the same as the Centro models sold by Sprint and AT&T, the specs will include:

  • 320×320 touchscreen display
  • Palm OS by ACCESS 5.4.9
  • Bluetooth
  • 64MB available user storage
  • microSD card support (up to 4GB)
  • Up to 3.5 – 4 hours talk time, 300 hours standby

The price is expected to be $269.99 $99.99 with a 2-year contract.

Wasn’t the Centro supposed to be the cheap smartphone that removed the price barrier for students, budding young executives, etc. from getting a smartphone?

I can’t imagine paying that much for a Centro but if you’re tied to Verizon and Palm apps I suppose you could justify it.

UPDATED: Thankfully the originally posted price of $269.99 was wrong! The real price will be $99.99 after signing a 2-year contract and sending in a $70 mail-in rebate.
