Palm Treo 680 smartphone now available in the UK


Last month we highlighted the launch of Palm’s entry-level smartphone – the Treo 680. Well, if you were tempted, here’s the good news – you can pick one up from today.

The colourful Treo 680 is Palm’s “professional consumer” handset – which means it has the business functionality without sacrificing the looks. It’s a quad-band phone with 320×320 colour screen, Bluetooth, enhanced sms messaging (you can view as a thread rather than individual messages), 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.

Other notable features include an improved phone application, which allows you to dial quicker and navigate the phone features even more quickly, an ability to ignore calls and send a quick text message, such as “in a meeting” or “can’t talk right now” and an improved QWERTY keyboard. It’s available from today in red, orange, white and silver and retails contract-free from Palm for £299.
