    uberphones is reporting that industry insiders have confirmed an upcoming low-cost Treo - the Treo 680.

    Well put!:biggrin:

    Sounds like this is the famed lowrider that will be priced at $199. I'm curious as to the differences between the 650 and 680 considering the price points are about the same.
    Ah hell, it's 30 more, it must be better.

    As has been the history, the leaky faucet is now a become a full blown pipe. Images were found at PalmGear revealing both a Cingular branded Treo 680 and a Cingular branded Treo 750 (a Cingular version of the 750v). Check out the blog entry for more details and glorious imagery of the Treo 680 and Treo 750. I love excitement on a Saturday morning.

    And for the lazy.. here's the 680.

    So even though its not ground breaking, I am glad to see some of the new Palm stuff making its way to Cingular
    I would venture to guess that you take a stock 650, add High speed data radio, ptunes, and drop it in a 750 case and you get . . . . . . . . 680

    It actually has gold chains attached so you can wear it around your neck as "Bling" like Flav-a-Flav's clocks.

    Apples & oranges. The 750 runs Windows, while the 680 looks like it will run PalmOS. If you're starting from scratch, you're in great shape! Choices up the ying yang.

    The reason I switched from the 8125 to the Treo 650.

    I must be one of the crazy people that actually likes the look of the antenna. And I too use it to pull my Treo from it's case. Since I use the horizontal carry case I can hook one finger around the antenna and lift it up enough to get my hand around it and lift it out securely. It's a second-nature technique and I'd be lost without it.

    I kinda like the soap bar look without the antena... if this truly comes out I'm changing my Treo650. Palm needs to get more Palm phones out, I really hate WinMobile (yes I have used it... for 6 months). When is this pegged for release into the wild?

    I was actually considering changing to a BlackBerry... but now that I've been using one for a week I still prefer my 650.

    I own the 8125, and a Blackberry 7100g, and I still prefer my 650. A great device indeed.

    I've been using a 7290... not half the fun of my Treo.
