Remember those two new colors we mentioned awhile back for the Centro? Well, today Palm officially announced these two "soft-touch" colors, Olive green and Vibrant rose. Nice that these two colors will have the soft-touch paint. I really appreciate the soft-touch paint on my Treo 750 as it gives me a better grip, plus it just feels nice.

Palm says that with Twice the storage at 128MB, the ability to add up to 4GB more with a microSD card, Facebook for Palm, and Google Maps with the My Location feature all wrapped up in new colors at a special holiday price as low as $79.99 (3), the Centro for Sprint will make the perfect ready-to-go gift. The Olive green and Vibrant rose colors will join the popular Onyx black Centro in Sprint's holiday lineup.

From the press release:

"We're seeing fashion designers gravitate toward olive and rose tones, as forecasted in the PANTONE Fashion Color Reports for Fall 2008 and Spring 2009,� said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute�. "Olive green and Vibrant rose are both strong fashion colors, offering a sense of sophistication and elegance. These hues are classic colors, with the longevity to translate from season to season.�

The Olive green and Vibrant rose Centros will be available as early as October 19th at select retail locations, and beginning November 2 in Sprint Stores, consumer and business sales channels, and online at and the Palm Store. You'll be able to get the new colors for a special promotional price as low as $79.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement and a $100 mail-in rebate and $25 or higher data add-on or Everyting plan with data(3), through January 10, 2009.

Palm is also introducing several custom-designed Centro accessories that are simple and lightweight:

  • Centro Side Case: This smart and elegant leather side case has white stitching, smooth microfiber lining to help protect the phone, a magnetic closure and an attached belt clip. Available Nov. 2 online from the Palm Store.
  • Centro Leather Flip Case: The new Centro leather flip case lets users access Centro's touch screen, keyboard and buttons while it's snapped safely inside the case. It flips open for talking and using the phone, and comes with an array of liner and stitching colors to choose from -- black, green, rose or blue. Available Nov. 2 online from the Palm Store.
  • Vehicle Power Adapter: The new vehicle power adapter for Centro is small and sleek, and includes a USB-to-microUSB cable and a multi-connector adapter (microUSB to multi-connector). Available in November online from the Palm Store.

I love those two new colors! Looks like the Olive green and the Vibrant rose Centros will be in style since those two colors are so fashionable at the moment. Good to know that Palm has some new Centro accessories coming soon too. You can never have too many accessories to choose from.
