Palm Centro 690 (CDMA)
PALM IS DEAD!
It's insane that Palm is still around. Look at the specs of every Treo since the 650. Notice anything? ALL THE SPECS ARE THE SAME! Palm coned customers into thinking the new Treo's were updated, when in fact they were not. What they do is release a phone like the 600, with a low res screen. Then release the 650, with a high res screen. They have used this tactic over and over again. Check out Palm's web site. Even the mods in their forum are fed up with Palm.
If you are thinking about wasting your money on a Treo or Centro, DON'T! You w...
It's coming to Verizon and I have a question.
Here's my question for those of you who have been using the device. Can you get push email or the equivalent on it? If it doesn't push email, can you at least set it such that it goes to check your email at intervals you can set? Will it work with POP3 accounts?
Thanks for your input.

Verdict is in: PEOPLE LOVE IT
I didn't think there would be this many people asking for the phone, but people come in, they ask for it, and they buy it. Period. Looks like Palm might have a winner after all!
I dont even use the phone that much except for the test messaging. I texted like crazy on my other phones and never had such poor battery life.
However this is my first smart phone so maybe its just something that happens to all smart phones and Im not used to it?
Possibly interested in the Centro... curious about battery life, music and games
Whatever phone I get, I will NOT be wasting my money on a data plan. Does that negate like 90% of the purpose of a phone like this? Does this phone support Wi-Fi and if so, it is pointless without a dataplan or can you still jump online if you have WiFi access?
Can I install games on it through a USB cable? Are there any good ones that will run?
How bad is the battery life is you mainly use it for talking (and not a ton of talking either). I could go days and days without charging my old phone.
Is it a decent enough music player? I was tempted with...
can you send picture mail with this phone?
Is there a "back" button?
is the HTC TouchCube program available on this?
8gb memory card question
Anyway I've been reading about people using 6 and 8gb memory cards in their Centro and the only problem is that the Centro can't accurately report the free and total memory on the card. I need to buy a card and have a few questions about this.
1. Can the files that occupy the unaccounted for file space on the memory card be deleted in the phone's file manger?
2. How fast does pTunes access the content on a full 8gb memory card? How does this compare to a full 4gb card?
3. Can you recommend a 6 or 8gb memory card?
