Full-featured, easy to use smartphone for entry-level price; Clear, bright, high-resolution touchscreen; Compact body with rounded edges; Zippy EV-DO data with access to Sprint TV service; A-GPS works with location-based services

QWERTY keys are small and cramped; Display is smallish (if still easy to read); Hardware and software design feels a bit dated; Noticeably thicker than comparable devices; No Music Store access (yet)

Get Center in their hands. If you like the way it feels and if the buttons are not too small for you, you might you have found the best value currently in a smartphone with full-featured built for consumers. Palm OS is not stain, but it works well and fast Sprint EV-DO and excellent data network music store add value to the device. But the lack of space and the small buttons on the screen dealing with offenders for some.
