    You're right, for the most part. But in a purely business setting, like I am in most of my day...a black or graphite colored phone is considered more "professional" appearing whether that idea is valid or not. If I worked in a more casual atmosphere, the brighter colors would be more appropriate.

    Who knows...if I hang with the Treo, maybe the colored housings will become available on places like Cnn.cn that offer mobile phone replacement parts.

    I hope Palm decides to sell the unlocked colored treos again. Perhaps if they see they are losing a lot of potential customers they will rethink about their selling strategy.
    I've put a post in my weblog complaining about their decision. If enough people do that, hopefully Palm will listen.

    Thanks for the sage advice. Glad I came to this board to obtain words of wisdom from esteemed members such as yourself.

    If you have an unlocked red 680, and if it breaks, does that mean they're going to send you a graphite one to replace it?

    My guess is that they'll start selling colored Treo 680s in the international market. Glad I bought one online as its cheaper to buy in the US than here in Asia.

    *The unlocked Treo 680 graphite version will continue to be sold in the United States

    it's even on the european homepage. I guess all my whining to them about not buying a 680 paied off

    But it's probably a limited edition, and there is no copper :-( but i dont care, i got my copper from eBay. And it looks like i found a cheap used 750v so i can try that.

    It's good to see that they offer more choices, i'd better write them and tell them i like it.

    Just received the copper one off ebay in the states to give as a valentines present to my wife!

    Still, it cost me $450 inc shipping + 40 of tax at this end. All in all that will work out at around 275 with the dollar exchange rate so good. Not bad.

    My main trouble was finding someone who would ship to the UK.

    Given the trouble I have had getting it, I will be marketing it to my wife as " the only Copper Treo 680 in the UK"

    Guess you're right, now they only have graphite.

    You know, I'm beginning to enjoy this! Their website changes every few hours!

    Yep. Now on Palm's site:

    Effective February 15, Palm will begin selling Cingular-branded Treo 680 models in crimson, arctic and copper colors. Previously, those colored models were available only in unlocked versions from Palm. The unlocked Treo 680 graphite version will continue to be sold in the United States.

    Guess unlocked colors are no more.

    I think they're just messin' with y'all Palm reps probably lurk on TC and say, "Watch this!!" Then they pull the colored 680s off the website and laugh at all the posts wondering where they went. Then they put them back, and the game continues...
