I enjoyed the short time I spent with the Palm Cento from Sprint and have actually recommended it to a few people who fit the profile for the device. These people actually LOVE the device and are pleased I told them about this compact smartphone. There is a GSM version available now from Vodafone in Europe and rumors of a GSM version eventually coming to the U.S. Most rumors had the device coming to AT&T in the U.S., but now Engadget Mobile has posted a photo of a Centro with the T-Mobile logo on it so we may see it from T-Mobile as well.
It has been a long time since T-Mobile offered a Palm OS device and I think the only one they actually branded was the Treo 600 back in 2004. It will be interesting to see if this rumored Centro comes with support for T-Mobile's upcoming (hopefully) 1700 MHz 3G network since it runs on Sprint's 3G network now and should work with AT&T's 3G network as well. If it does come to T-Mobile, then I may have found some good gifts for my wife and daughters looking for a compact and functional smartphone/messaging device.
