The touch screen, at 320 by 320 pixel resolution and 2.2 inches diagonally, takes up about half of the upper part of the device. In all, the Centro is 4.22 by 2.11 by .73 inches and weighs only 4.4 ounces, making it one of the smallest and lightest Palm products released. It is available in white today from AT&T and black next month.

The product appeals primarily to young women seeking a lower cost device, Palm said.

Centro runs the Palm operating system and provides e-mail, chat and Web browsing. The push-to-talk feature allows discussions with as many as 29 people.

It is the first Palm OS smart phone with built-in XM Radio Mobile, which enables access to 25 commercial-free XM radio channels in a variety of genres. The Centro also has a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and a removable battery that supports up to four hours of talk time. TeleNav GPS Navigator is preinstalled.

It holds 64MB of storage, but a microSD card can be used to expand capacity.
