Palm Treo 680 Shows Up On Amazon

For those of you who are interested in a slightly cheaper Palm OS smartphone in the form of a Treo 680 (some of you are, apparently), Amazon popped up both a pre-order page and a price. Unfortunately, the $413 price tag was taken down rather quickly—maybe it was wrong—but the page is still there.

This is the unlocked GSM version from overseas, not the Cingular-sponsored version which should be much, much less than $413. Features: GSM, EDGE, VGA cam, QWERTY, 312MHz Intel PXA270 processor. But if you're going to be paying four hundred bucks for a low-end phone, we'd much rather you liquify that money, pour it into a syringe and shoot it directly into your eyeball.
