    Have been following this forum for quite a while, though never actually registered. Am dying for a Treo 680.

    Anyway, the Palm UK store lists the Treo 680 as available for Pre-Order at 329. That's $625. Well the 650 is retailing for 399, so make your own conclusions with regards to pricing. See:

    No colour options this side of the Atlantic for some reason, maybe us here in Europe are less "hip"?

    Edit: P.S. I took also took a screenshot in case Palm decides do one of those "lets take down that website before they discover anything" thing they do so well.

    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!

    Over at Expansys the Sony Erricson M600 is 60 cheaper at 269.99, and its 3G, smaller, thinner and lighter.

    Oh its just a skin over XP.

    surur: Yes, but the M600i doesn't have a camera (and people say the 680's camera is bad) nor a full thumboard, and in my opinion and my opinion only, no where nearly as "cool" as a bright-red Palm.

    I was going to say it looked pretty cool in Casino Royale, but in fact it looked gigantic and pretty bricky. I hope the Treo does better in that Russel Crowe movie.

    The M600 is not as easy to work with as with Palm products. One of my colleagues got the M600 and after only two weeks is tired of it. My Treo works far easier....

    I had an email this AM from UK Palmstore offering preorder on the 680.

    They will ship next monday 27/11/06

    I called hoping to sort an order, but withheld my large when i was told the colour options are not available in the UK.

    Call me a fashion victim (as if!) but I so want a copper one...

    frustrated, nuff said

    Has anyone noticed they list the 680 at 329 and the 650 for 399 !!!! How's that for crazy pricing?

    I have preordered mine and was told it will "hopefully" be dispatched on 27th November. The sales person asked if I could speak up as she couldn't hear me, I said I'm sorry I'm using a Treo 650. I think the joke was lost on her but it amused me.

    @pbutterworth I spoke to Orange today and they told me that the Treo 680 has been removed from review and it was unlikely to be offered by Orange and certainly not in the next few months. Keep in mind that this is Orange CS so please add salt to taste.

    Does not add anything to that posted above, but makes it more official
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway
