I’ve been thinking of getting a smartphone with PDA function since long time ago. However, I didn’t really go into surveying the features and prices for such device because most of them are cater for business and corporate users.

Out of a sudden, on September 27th Palm Inc. announced its first entry level smartphone : Palm Centro. It is designed for individuals and traditional mobile phone users. Not to mention it’s using Palm OS 5.4.9, not Wiindows Mobile other smartphone in the market using.
