Treo 680 comes to Canada
Rogers Wireless has adopted the Treo 680, finally giving Canadians a chance to try out the phone. The issue has lain with the 680's use of GSM, since while there are two other national phone providers in Canada (Bell and Telus), Rogers is the only one with a GSM network. The 680 has been one of the most popular "mainstream" smartphones since its release in October, having features such as EDGE broadband, Internet radio streaming, and a low cost compared to its business brethren. Its main competition is the Motorola Q. Rogers' price range for the 680 begins at $300 CDN with a three-year plan, and scales to $500 without a contract.
