Illustration for article titled Sprints Centro Gets First Update

One of the most successful smartphones of the last year is the Centro from Palm. Sprint was the first carrier to sell the device, so it's no surprise that it's also the first carrier to offer a software update for the phone. The big change is the addition of location services to Google Maps, a quasi-GPS that's actually pretty useful. Other changes include updates to VersaMail for Gmail users, better Exchange support, and Bluetooth enhancements. Hit the jump for the full list from Palm's website. [Palm Update] Thanks, David!
