    A2DP for the POS? I am impressed.

    Although that website is ghetto as hell, I don't trust it.

    edit: mp3 ringtone but not aac/amr? It's probably bogus.

    Those specs dont look right. A2DP - unlikely. IR - Where's the port?

    Ghetto??? *Seriously confused* I've always thought Jim's site was nice and clean.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    The same site mentions more possible "evidence" of Apple's upcoming iPhone with music and video. Add this to the ThinkSecret rumor that Apple's iPhone will be carried exclusively by Cingular initially in the U.S, to be released Q1-'07. Scant details so far, but it will of course have iTunes integration a la iPod, and if you have a Mac it will have iSync support for Address Book and iCal syncing (maybe Outlook syncing on Windows?). It will no doubt have Bluetooth (all of Apple's laptops have BT 2.0 + EDR). The article says it will be a candybar form factor, have a 2.2 inch display (no pixel depth specs yet) and a 3 mp camera.

    Considering Palm's disappointing near-term GSM plans in the U.S., I may have to wait to see what yummy gizmo Apple dishes up before I buy my next handset.

    Still holding onto my rock solid Treo 600 on T-Mobile.

    At the same spot where the IR receiver on the 750 is, there is no window on the 680.

    it also says standard sd card, so I assume the ir port is in the same place as the 650? I thought the 750 and 700p/700x didn't support a2dp bluetooth stereo? The 680 looks like a very strange mix if these specs are right. Low end camera but high end features like bluetooth stereo? To be honest I expected the 680 to be the same as a 750?

    The 680 is supposed to be a lower priced device, from what I understand. I think the BT stereo support claim is a mistake. Would be nice if it were true though!

    Well, I see an LED charge light on the 680 that doesn't appear on the picture of the 750. That means the cases are different, at least in a small way, so not seeing the IR port in the exact same place as on the 750 is not so convincing.

    It would be odd if a so-called low end device omitted the lowest end connectivity option.

    We've seen pictures of the device from all sides, and still have not seen an IR port.

    Maybe it's under the battery

    I've seen the manual. The IR port is on top, SD slot (yes, full SD) is on the side.
    Bluetooth is 1.2, no stereo according to manual, voice dialing via bluetooth is not on list of supported functions. DUN is enabled.

    Edit to add: my biggest suprise on glancing through the manual was that soft reset is to be done by removing the battery - no reset button to press.

    A bit disappointed by the bluetooth feature list, but I'm still liking the phone.

    What does it say about memory?

    Pretty hilarious, I can't find a listing of how much memory there is in the entire user guide.
    However, the person who sent me the guide said that there was 64MB on their phone.

    The 650 has 23 MB of memory available to the user based on 32 MB total (?). With 64 MB total in the 680, does this mean we can expect somewhere around (23 + 32) = 55 MB available?

    So the only hardware changes are an update to Bluetooth 1.2 and possibly more memory. On the down side it uses the same 1200mAH battery as the 750v
