Worst Cell Phones - Palm Centro

Why are some buttons green and others not?

Do you ever get Centro confused with Centrino? Has Intel called?

The Palm OS was pretty neat about 10 years ago. I know. I have had at least four Palm Pilots. But the Centro looks like cheap junk. Oh wait. It's $99.00 so it is cheap junk.

I should be fair but I cannot be after the Palm lady laughed at me in 2003 about my Palm Tungsten W, so there.

By the way. some of the buttons on the Centro are green because Palm is trying to go green. They are, however, taking baby steps and could only see fit to purchase a few of the new green buttons.

Worst Cell Phones - Bang and Olufsen Samsung Serenata

Introducing the new Serenata! Here are the features!
- Network - GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900!
- Display - TFT touchscreen, 256K colors!
- Ringtone - Polyphonic (64 channels)!
- Talk time - Up to 3 hours!
- Design - Butt ugly!

There is no better way to describe this other than it is looks like a remote control, possibly for a television or a stereo. And then it dawned on me: B&O probably had a few thousand remotes sitting in a warehouse somewhere in Scandinavia and some whiz kid thought, "Hey, let's shove a GSM radio inside and call it a phone!".

The rest is history - just like the Serenata in late 2009.
