Palm Ships Treo 680

Palm today announced that it has begun shipping its Treo 680 to both cellular providers and users. First to receive the smartphone will be Cingular, Palm says, which will receive the new device November 24th beginning at prices of $200 with a two-year contract. The Cingular-specific version will ship with Telenav GPS Navigator software for driving directions as well as a 30-day trial of Yahoo! Unlimited Music To Go that takes advantage of the Treo 680's music support. The handset will also support the carrier's EDGE broadband network.

Palm also said today that it will begin accepting preorders for an unlocked version of the entry-level Treo immediately with an expected ship date of December 1st for both in-store and online customers. The unlocked version will require cellphone service with a GSM-based provider and accompanying SIM card and is expected to retail for $399.
