Palm’s Colligan: Centro Easier Than iPhone!

Hey, I don’t make up the quotes. I just transcribe them!

Palm Almost Ready for High Fives?

I think people are buying Centros for different reasons [than the iPhone]. They’re [Centros] easier to use, they’re a little less pretentious, they are smaller form factor. They’ve got a full keyboard for doing data entry.


Screensnap, not video

This is the same guy who once infamously brayed:

“We’ve learned and struggled for a few years here figuring out how to make a decent phone. PC guys are not going to just figure this out. They’re not going to just walk in.”

Just less than two months before the iPhone was unveiled.

He also says that Palm will be offering a “breakthrough level of innovation” — probably after the mythical code-named Nova new Linux-based Palm OS is set on a street corner to woo prospects.

But what happens when those two-million Centro users expect that “breakthrough level of innovation” on another phone priced at just US$99 (or even less)?

And, um, Ed? Apple can still do further price drops on the iPhone. In fact, I’d count on that!

    I love that guy.

    Less pretentious? what does that even mean? Well, the PC guys walked in and Palm is headed for an epic fail.

    It sells because its “cheap”. Cheap will always sell a lot, but their profit margins are out the door with this one.
