Cingular launches Palm Treo 680

Following the launches of the Motorola Q on Verizon's network and the BlackBerry Pearl on T-Mobile, Cingular has launched the Palm Treo 680, which, like its rivals, attempts to target the "prosumer" with a blend of enterprise-class functionality and consumery services like an MP3 player, video player, camcorder and digital camera. The device notably runs on a Palm OS, which many believe has an uncertain future. The new Treo's price tag is a bit higher than its rivals at $200--most currently retail for $100 with the two-year contract. Cingular also has a crowded deck for devices, only the Motorola Q is exclusive to Verizon Wireless.
