Chris Davies - Oct 28, 2006

God bless leaked presentations.  Thanks to what we can only assume is a careless marketing bod, a Cingular smartphone presentation reveals that the Treo 680 is provisionally due for release on November 5th, with a list price of $424.99 that drops sharply towards the $200 mark depending on how willing you are to sell your cellphone-soul.  Details after the cut, people.

Price breakdown for the Palm Treo 680 is as follows:

  • $349.99 one year contract
  • $249.99 one year with unlimited data (and $100 rebate)
  • $274.99 two year contract
  • $174.99 two year with unlimited data (and $100 rebate)
