Palm has just posted a software update for the new Treo 680 on its product support web site.

This company has discovered that its latest smartphone can suffer from reduced battery life when the camera is used.
This is because the camera can continue to draw power from the battery — even when the device is in standby mode.
Palm strongly recommends that Treo 680 users install the update when convenient to take care of this problem. This bug won’t damage the smartphone, but it should increase the amount of time it can go on a single charge.
This update can be downloaded, without charge, from Palm’s web site. Instructions for installing it are on the same page.
