Palm Treo 680 Launched!
After Palm made the announcement of the Treo 680 smartphone in late September, it is finally available for purchase today. The phone is confirmed to go through Cingular Wireless and will cost $199 with activation or $399 for an unlocked unit. It looks like you can buy it directly from the Palm store for the time being. At the time of writing, Cingular's website hasn't updated their smartphone lineup to show the addition. There are four colors available; Graphite is the standard color and the other three color (Arctic, Crimson, and Copper) is only available exclusively through the Palm store directly. My feeling towards this phone is best described by Sascha Segan's review titled "Palm's Treo 680 Smartphone Should Cost Less, Do More".
