According to PIC, these units are GSM. Despite the reported delay in the Centro’s launch in Southeast Asia, these colorful phones will probably reach the Philippines within the year.
Last November, I wrote that I want a Palm bluetooth headset. Since the Foleo was canceled — and I probably would not be able to afford if it was sold anyway — I thought the headset would be my Christmas gift to myself.
I was able to buy one on eBay for a total price of P2,466.17 because of the $20 shipping. I picked it up from the post office on February 7.
I excitedly tried it when I arrived home. Since the package only had the charger and there was no user guide included, I couldn’t pair the headset with my phone. I had to search the Web for a manual before I was able to make it work. Among the cool features I found out was redialing the last dialed number by just pressing the center button on the headset.
If you’re not on Linux or you can’t do a hotsync with your Linux yet, this post is not useful to you.

I found this command line — that generated a backup of all files on my Treo’s internal memory — at Atul Chitnis’ site while trying to look for a way to sync my AvantGo with J-Pilot. Syncing with J-Pilot used sync my AvantGo, too but it stopped after I upgraded my OS.
Kakabasa ko lang sa MyTreo.net na sa February 14 na ang launch ng Palm Centro sa United Kingdom. Hinihintay ko na lang ang petsa ng launch nito sa Pilipinas.
Eto ang teaser sa Palm UK website:
“Life starts after five o’clock. That’s why there’s the PalmÂ® Centroâ„¢ smartphone. Palm Centro gives you voice, text, email and web1, all in a phone that’s a lot smaller than you think. It even has a touchscreen and a full keyboard, so you can say L8R to those tricky keys on your cell phone. Carry names and numbers, shoot photos and video, and meet up with friends. Centro. Let’s go.”
Learned about this on YugaTech.com:
Brand-new Palm Treo 650s are now available for only P14,995 at ElectroWorld at Greenbelt 1 in Makati City. The 56% discount (from P33,900) is due to the store’s clearance sale that runs from February 1 to 10.
I used to have Google Desktop on both my home and office PCs. However, I had to remove it on my office PC because it made my super duper slow computer even slower. As for my home PC, it lost the Google Desktop application when I jumped out of Windows and switched to Ubuntu Linux. I forgot about it until last night.
