    Default Palm Centro, anyone?

    Does any Clubsnappers have used or own a Palm Centro? I'm considering replacing my PDA phone with it and wanna find out if it can multi-task(make calls and check calender or excel file at the same time). I've heard that Palm OS can only do specific multi-tasking job, not all like WM6.1........

    Actually yes... The G900 is 600, the G700 Business Edition is 488, the normal G700 is 475.

    Thanks for the advice, will consider the SonyEricsson but somehow it doesn't feel like a true blue PDA phone........ More like a normal phone bumped with business functions.

    Actually for Symbian phone, I was considering Nokia E71 with a Qwerty keyboard instead. Review was pretty good but price was on the high side without line.......

    Yup, saw the leaked advert on it but new phone is unlikely to be under $500......

    yes, you can switch to other applications while you're on a phone call.

    Thanks man, that's a relieve! Heard from the webreview that Palm OS is an old OS that can't catch up with the current trend of PDA which can do a few thing at the same time with ease.

    palm can use phone and apps at the same time!

    and it takes lesser steps to access a program and it does not have the need to clear the memory like WinMobile.
