palm centro unlockedPalm announced this afternoon that the Centro will be able to add Google Maps with My Location as early as tomorrow. The maker also announced an unlocked version of the Centro in white with gray.

Another phone with Google Maps for location and driving directions. Iv’e said it before, but anyone else feel like something else is coming? Google has to have given this some thought? Don’t get me wrong, Google Maps is fun but navigation is missing. Enough of my blather.

My Location on the Centro will allow users to find themselves with fewer keystrokes and less effort. The My Location is in addition to all the great things Google Maps brings: traffic, aerial shots and driving directions. Ok, I can’t take it. Just driving directions? Come on Google. You know where we are. You’ve got the directions. How much harder is it to put this together??? Ok, I am over it now. This is a cool addition for the plethora of Centro users out there (the phone is really cute). You can download as of tomorrow from here.

The unlocked phone is $299 and retains the same dimensions. You can find it for sale online here.
