Product Info


One of the sweetest things about the Centro is that little corner post on the bottom right corner. It accommodates a lanyard. These now come in a variety of colors, materials, lengths, and styles, with probably many more yet to appear.

I have several lanyards in my collection, and the ones I like best and use the most are neck lanyards. My Centro is red (!), and I like the contrast with a white lanyard. However, with its new leather entry, Palm brings yet another configuration to the ever expanding fray: finger style. It�s like guitar pickin�, but without the guitar. The promo copy tells the tale:

�Attaches to your phone or finger with black nylon loop

Maybe that�s a little mixed up, and the lanyard is supposed to attach your Centro to your finger. Could be. The lanyard is not long enough to fit around a wrist � except perhaps a very small one. Actually, I suspect its true purpose in life is solely fulfilling that Overriding Factor for All Things Fashion: looks. Think of it as jewelry for your smartphone.

The Palm Leather Finger Lanyard does indeed look good. Great, in fact, and with plenty of coolth to spare. It�s decorated with a silver-colored heart and two circular buttons that all look fab against the black leather loop. Moreover, it has a red interior and a splash of red stitching at the top that coordinates quite well with my Centro - although it would also go well with the black and the white models. I�ll reserve judgement on the pink one till I get one.

For function, the loop does only one job: it makes an excellent pocket puller outer. Yank the Centro by its lanyard, instead of fishing around in your pocket or book bag and smudging the screen with fingerprints. I find it quite handy.

For all this, it weighs nearly nothing. My kitchen scale, that I bought to diet with, pegs it at 2 or 3 grams � it can�t decide which. It considers that zero ounces, and I do, too, but if you must do the math, feel free. It�s still negligible additional weight to carry around.


If you feel the need to decorate your Centro, the Palm Leather Finger Lanyard is a good place to start. It offers great looks, and it forms a handle by which to retrieve your Centro from your pocket, book bag, or purse.
