    What would you get? I have the 680 but am thinking I might be happier with the 8525. Would love to know what other people have experienced and their opinion.

    What are your needs? They are completely different devices.

    680=EDGE only, Palm OS, always exposed keyboard, a little more compact, square screen.

    8525=Wifi, UMTS, WM5, sliding keyboard, a little brickier maybe, rectangular screen that can go into landscape mode.
    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!

    If you are happy with the 680 stick with the 680, like phone diva said they are completely different devices. She broke them down to help you see clear

    The 680 is prettier than it is useful. The 8525 is a better phone, better PDA, and a better email device. I had a 680 for a few weeks in December and I was off for those weeks so I was using the phone very lightly. From that light use I could already see that the phone was not ready for heavy use. I have been using an HTC TyTN (original version of the 8525) for a few weeks now, and though it ain't perfect, it is certainly a MUCH better device than the 680 will be.
