Treo 680 now available from Cingular and unlocked

Summary:The Palm Treo 680 was announced last month and is now available for purchasing from Cingular and from Palm. You can get it for as low as US$199 or US$399 in an unlocked model. This latest Treo runs the Palm OS and should be quite a hit for the holidays.

Treo 680 flavors

The Treo 680 was announced on 12 October and it is now available for purchase. I used a Treo 650 for over a year and one of my major issues was the lack of available memory and some resetting problems. The Treo 680 now doubles the available memory of the Treo 650, does away with the external antenna, and slims down the form factor a bit. I am about ready to pull the trigger on one since I only have an old Tungsten T3 Palm OS device in my collection and would like a newer Palm OS model for review purposes. You can buy the Treo 680 from Cingular for as low as US$199 with activation and a service contract. Since I am on T-Mobile Palm is also offering the Treo 680 SIM unlocked for US$399. Now I just need to decide what color I want and am leaning towards Crimson.
