For some reason, Palm and AT&T have conspired to lower the price of their Centro handheld by a full $30. The diminutive little bugger is now on sale via all retail channels for the bargain basement price of $69.99. Sure, it will cost you in the form of a 2-year contract, but if the $199 iPhone 3G is a bit too expensive for your taste, the Centro might suffice as a suitable stand-in…that is, of course, if you’re completely blind. Sure, the Centro sports a likeable, if outdated, interface, and a number of useful features, but at the end of the day we think you’d have to be crazy to spend good money on a device that runs off the 2.5G EDGE network, and has a keyboard designed for babies and people with abnormally small fingers. That said, if $69.99 seems like too good of a deal to pass up, head on over to your local AT&T store, bypass the lines of crying iPhone customers, and pick one up for yourself. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.
