Palm sells 1 million Centros, and counting

Thought the Centro was a non-starter, due to its middle of the road feature set and uninspired styling? Think again. Palm has just announced that they have sold 1 million of the little buggers. Citing the accessible $99 price point, the Palm press release goes on to tout the handset’s mass appeal, especially to customers entering the smartphone market for the first time. While it’s certainly not our device of choice around here, we understand the handset’s appeal and think that Palm has pulled off a bit of a miracle here. As availability spreads to more carriers, we wouldn’t be surprised to see sales numbers continue to escalate. Nice job, Palm! In the future, though, let’s just try and make a device that is actually 2008-ready.
