Palm To Launch Unlocked GSM Centro In Europe

Palm will be launching an unlocked GSM version of the Palm Centro in the UK on February 14th, and throughout Europe by the end of February. The GSM Centro is very much like the CDMA Centro carried by Sprint in the US, with the obvious change to the radio. The GSM Centro is a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900MHz) world-phone. Like other GSM Palm OS phones it is limited to EDGE speeds for data, no UMTS/HSPA. Currently only the Black Onyx version will be sold in Europe, with an MSRP of £199/€299. Since it is unlocked, and a quad-band phone, it would also work quite well on GSM carries in the US, such as AT&T or T-Mobile. A US launch seems likely to follow since they have the phone in production. US users who don’t want to wait can always import one. See this post at Treonauts for more details.
