The Treo 680 has also recently debuted on some new South American carriers: Argentina’s CTI Movil and Peru’s Claro, who also began offering this device in El Salvador and Guatemala last month.

Other countries where the Treo 680 is available include France, Mexico, the Philippines, Singapore, and Switzerland.

More About the Treo 680

This smartphone greatly resembles previous Treos, but does not need the unpopular external antenna that those models had to have. It is also thinner that its predecessors.

The 680 runs Palm OS Garnet, and includes 64 MB of user-available storage.

It is a GSM quad-band smartphone with support for GPRS and EDGE. It also includes Bluetooth.

Naturally, this Treo includes a suite of PIM applications — Address Book, Calendar, To-Do list. It is also bundled with a suite of applications that will allow users to view and edit Microsoft Office documents.

An SD slot for additional storage and a 0.3 megapixel camera are also part of this model.
