Troubled PDA maker Palm seems to have hit on a winner with its
new Centro smartphone, at least as far as shareholders are
The Palm Centro is skinnier and lighter than its existing Treo cousins and costs 70 euro with a two-year service contract. Shares in the company increased by five per cent after the announcement.
Palm's Treo, which pioneered the smartphone market, was considered a bit past its sell-by date being too thick and expensive for most users.
