Palm has unveiled the new Treo 680 which is very similar in design to the Treo 700p except with an internal antenna. The new 680, expected to be priced at $199 when released in mid-2007, features quad-band GMS/EDGE (sorry Verizon subscribers), a 320 x 320 color screen (which is fantastic), an excellent VGA camera with video, Bluetooth, 64MB of non-volatile flash memory, 4 colors to choose from and all the productivity apps Palm users have come to love.
Productivity features include: multi-party phone conferencing, high-quality speakerphone, e-mail on the go, Web access using the Blazer Web browser, text messaging including multi-threaded chat, built-in organizer with calendar, contacts, to-do lists, and memo's and much much more.
Being a Treo 700p user myself I'm a huge fan of the Treo line and Palm OS. With this phones amazing price point and new color options it is sure to please business professionals and casual users alike. I've yet to figure out what features they've removed from it in order to get the price down from over $600 (like other Treo's).
