Cingular internal documents have leaked onto the web this week. They confirm that the Treo 680 will launch at the end of this week, on November 5. The GSM/EDGE low-end Treo will retail for as low as $174.99 with all available contract and rebate offers. Cingular will promote the device at $279.99 after rebate with new two-year agreement.
However, the documents also state that the Palm OS Treo will be updated in early 2007 with support for Cingular’s PTT network. This would make the Treo 680 the first PTT-enabled Treo in the U.S.
The documents also added clarity to Cingular’s 8525, designed and produced by HTC. The device will reach approval for shipping today, and become available in-stores as soon as stock is taken. The device is PTT-enabled, making it the first non-BlackBerry PDA to carry PTT in the U.S.
Both devices will come bundled with TeleNav service, and Cingular has already begun stocking compatible Bluetooth GPS units for use with the TeleNav service.
