Palm’s Treo 680 smartphone has been around in the UK since last November, so what better way to boost flagging sales than a colour makeover – in this case, crimson red.
Yes, a new bold red colour is now available, but with no change to the specification, which includes quad-band phone with 320×320 colour screen, Bluetooth, 64MB of storage (which can be boosted by card), email, web browsing (via Blazer 4.5), music player, VGA camera, photo album and Documents To Go – so you can view, edit and share Word and Excel documents. The operating system is Palm OS.
You can also pick up the smartphone in conjunction with Palm’s TomTom GPS package deal, which throws in a plug & go expansion card for the UK, Bluetooth GPS receiver, vehicle device cradle and power adapter – adding up to around £155 of extras.
The Treo 680 itself retails for £299 online.
