If you’re a die hard Palm fan, you might be be overjoyed with the news that you can now get your grubby mitts on a factory-unlocked Palm Centro. This isn’t for the CDMA-lovers, it’s for the GSM nuts. The unlocked model drops the puke green keyboard on the AT&T device for a white keyboard. Thank god. Price? $299. Not terrible at all. But for that price, you do have to put up with an outdated OS, constant crashes, and random resets. You can’t have it all, people! Also, a new Google Maps application will be available for all Palm Centros regardless of carrier starting tomorrow. The new application finally brings Google’s cell phone triangulation to the Palm OS.
