“I have to say that my first impressions are extremely positive and that, from a design point of view, the Centro is a classy little smartphone that outshines most of its rivals.”
Those are my words from January 2009. The Centro was released on October 14, 2007. The first iPhone was released on June 29, 2007. What the hell was I thinking when I wrote the words above?
I know what I was thinking. I was thinking that this was how phones were back then and even though it wasn’t the best Palm had produced, it was competitive. Simon mentioned on LIM that he had a Centro that he was disposing of and so I took the opportunity to pay a nominal amount to relive the old days. To be fair, he didn’t want anything for it, but I wanted to step back and this was the perfect way to do it.
How quickly we forget.
