Smart phones are angry today. The Apple iPhone, Blackjack on Samsung and any Blackberry device are popular commodities. The palm was a successful or missing company with some remarkable successes and some not too remarkable deals. The new Palm Centro from AT & T is promising all worlds – including satellite radio.
Palm Centro is a smart smartphone with touch screen, full QWERTY keyboard, and this incorporates XM radio. There are a number of other options available at Palm Centro that relate exclusively to AT & T. The full line from the built-in browser Blazer, the 64 MB storage to the mp3 player (upgradable to 4GB with card) and 25-channel XM radio. Although this is not a lot of channels (as XM offers more than this!) This ensures portability and ability to customize which channels are received.
You can listen to your favorite XM music, listen to live sports games, or watch conversations directly from the phone. While the phone is getting mixed opinions (the palm heritage is less than the past offer of the stars), the phone itself promises to compete competitively with the other smartphones currently available. The simple fact of being duplicated as a portable XM radio is a great feature. This can be combined with the ability to stream web TV shows, MP3s and many more, and Palm can be combined with winning combinations.
As satellite radio is widely accepted in today's automotive industry, it is not surprising that mobile technology is geared to incorporating music broadcasting. For more than a year, Apple and Sirius have communicated to make Sirius a radio add-on to the iPod. Although the partnership did not support reality at the moment, the concept of consumer demand persists. Undoubtedly, we will see that satellite radios are one of the features that phones, such as cameras, videos and MP3s, have been in the past.
There are other phones from other companies that promise more, but Palm is the only type that has debuted so far. This means that consumers requiring an XM radio (or any satellite radio) have few (legal) choices but use Palm Centro.
Why did Centro not get a better rating? Part of the problem lies in the fact that it only operates on the AT & T GSM network, which many consumers do not like for various reasons. Other reasons include the fact that the phone is at least $ 100, though the relative price of iPhone (which does not have XM); looks like a bargain basement. There are several software options available for Centro, which is a real smart phone, so only time will tell if it's on the market.
In the meantime, fans who want XM radio at all times but do not want to deal with Palm products can get their hands on multiple XM radio products that require portability. In the meantime, consumers who want to wait for a single device (phone, PDA and radio). Maybe Sirius has something in his work that will offer a better platform than GSM? Unfortunately, we just have to wait for media people to see what consumers are, though with the rapid launch of Palm, Sirius is probably not far behind. We can say that the days of portable satellite radio and mobile phone capabilities are not far away.
