    Though I think it was a given, it looks like there is definitely a ringer-switch on top of the device. (sad I have to point that out in 2007 as a "feature")

    Now we just need the rest:

    - price
    - battery size & performance
    - included software
    - see what Palm did w/ WM Standard

    All of that will make or break this device.

    Also, knowing Palm, the 800w will look very similar but black and the 320x320 screen, making up for that gap in between the dpad and screen.

    Must say the white looks sweet!

    I say the black ones look better

    So this is basically a thicker, heavier Moto Q/ blackjack? Palm is really pulling out all the stops now.

    but some will argue that it's because of its touchscreen (although i'm still uncertain which has what). some think it's because of it's larger battery but that can't be the case because the 680's battery isn't large at all (capacity wise).

    time will tell
    Blackberry Pearl (AT&T), Apple 3G iPhone,
    owned and used: Treo 750 (WM5, Cingular)
    T680 unlocked (T-Mo), T700wx, T700w, T650, T600

    If its hanging out with the battery under the battery cover, that would be upsetting.

    Yes.

    With my experience hanging with friends the Q and the Blackjack seem to have less than substantial battery life and they carry backup batteries...the Blackjack even comes with two batteries, so what does that tell you. Maybe the extra size is due to battery capacity? If the 500 has substantial battery life then the little extra size would be compensated for.

    Wouldn't it be funny if Palm releases another 32 MB RAM device (128 MB ROM + 32 MB RAM = 160 MB, approx = 150 MB mentioned earlier)?

    Well, it's gone 8.30am here in the UK, and there is no email from Palm or anything on the Palm UK site yet...

    Nothing on the Vodafone site either.

    In the UK, they don't start work until after 1 pm....

    Just kidding... it is early... time will tell.... sure something will be out today. Any shows skeduled or press announcements?

    The new Honda Accord is out today as well... they updated their site at around 12:15 am... I see palm has not updated their site yet. Not that I'm surprised.

    Any rate, I doubt if this will be the phone for most people here... no touch screen will be the killer deal for the palm faithful.... hopefully, palm can get some new people and grow the base... I'm so glad palm is moving... to show you are not dead, move a little....

    Some questions this poses:

    Where is that MicroSD slot? My guess is under the battery.
    I'd like to know the weight.

    A2DP is standard on WM6 devices. That 150 MB memory is getting really suspicious...

    Its on the UK website now.
    http://euro.palm.com/uk/

    but when you click find out more it doesn't work. Typical Palm....

    Nice flash advert though, they should put it on TV.

    Palm UK site says 256MB total - the 150MB is listed as "available".

    Still no Price yet... The "Buy" tab takes you to a page listing the pre-500 products only... with some page formating troubles as well...

    And beaten to the punch by a full 3 minutes also Thats just sad. Let me be the first (hopefully) to say its only 120g, which is cool. The theme is also pretty attractive.
