Hold The Phone! (Literally)

Posted by thelanetrain on June 12, 2008

It appears that a summer smartphone war is very much on our hands.  Almost 72 hours after Apple announced a new iPhone, Verizon Wireless reported that it will be carrying the new Palm Centro for (brace yourselves) only $99!  That’s like half an iPhone!  It gets better.

According to the article from Channel Web, this budget smartphone is gonna have TONS of great features.  It comes in cobalt blue, features a vivid 320×320 pixel touchscreen, a QWERTY keyboard, weighs just 4.2 ounces, and has full 3G internet capability!  It still doesn’t look nearly as sleek or cool as the iPhone, but at least you don’t have to have AT&T’s shitty coverage.

Now if only Sprint and T-Mobile were somehow able to get their shit together…
