    New Smart Device Offers Cingular Consumer and Business Customers a Slim and Sleek Device Packed Full of Functionality


    ATLANTA & SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cingular Wireless and Palm, Inc. (Nasdaq:PALM - News) today introduced the new Palm® Treo(TM) 680 smart device, whose brand-new look, broad range of features and economical price will appeal to both consumers and business customers -- just in time for the holidays. The Treo 680 quad-band world phone on the Palm OS® platform -- which is available beginning Friday, Nov. 24, for as low as $199.99(1) -- boasts Palm's hallmark ease of use to keep any user productive, all with a slim and compact feel.

    Cingular business and consumer customers will be able to better balance their personal and business lives, as the all-in-one Treo 680 seamlessly combines a compact, full-featured mobile phone with so much more, all at a competitive price. Users can do even more with their phone, from accessing email and editing documents at the airport to organizing photos and music while waiting for a friend at the coffee shop.

    Market research firm In-Stat estimates that 25 percent of all wireless handsets worldwide will be PDAs and smartphones by 2011, which makes the Treo 680 the ideal phone both for feature-phone upgraders and new users.

    The Palm Treo 680 is easy to use and affordable because of the multiple innovations it encompasses:

    A new internal antenna enables a sleeker design;
    An improved phone application on the Treo 680 smart device allows users to dial faster;
    The ability to ignore calls with a quick text message lets users tell a caller "I'm in a meeting" or "Can't talk now";
    The large, bright color screen is perfect for viewing email, documents or spreadsheets via DataViz Documents To Go®, and even photos and movies;
    The highly regarded built-in QWERTY keyboard has improved buttons, making it even easier to type emails or SMS messages;
    The messaging application displays text-messaging conversations as "threaded chats," similar to IM, so users can see their entire conversation with a particular person; and
    The Treo 680 smart device also can be used as an MP3 player and has an integrated digital camera, camcorder and video player, with simpler organization for photos and photo slideshows.

    FINALLY!!! Only problem I'm having is it doesn't let me select Canada as a country, but has the option of my province and postal code...

    Wow. $399 unlocked. I want a red one just because it is red. I can't see any massive benefit on upgrading from my 650. But still . . . . red. Wow. Dilemma. Do I buy myself a Christmas present?

    I'm with you man. I am banging my head against the wall. It has the Canadian provinces but it doesn't allow you to change the country. Whats up with that? Please let me know if you find a solution.

    Anyone notice this? If you are a current Cingular customer its $449 through Palm and you can't pick a color. However, the unlocked version on their website is $399 in your choice of colors. Why would anyone under contract with Cingular pick the locked one?

    I have to sell my unlocked 650 first before I can fork out the cash.
    Thank You,

    Wouldn't dream of selling my 650...but I can tell you...my credit card wants to jump out of my wallet for a crimson one! Good thing they skipped pink! That would be a done deal!

    I hear that. My CC is maxed due to a business trip to NY last week so selling the 650 is the only option. Yes, I hate to do it but on to bigger and better...LOL.
    Thank You,

    My order for an unlocked graphite is in! Now I need to part out my old 650. Will sell the keyboard, extended and regular batteries, and touchscreen. (The mainboard has some 'unauthorized' modifications.)

    You can get more money selling your used 650 on eBay than using the tradeup program.

    On top of it you get the free mobile music pack from Palm ($135.00 value).
