Palm Treo 680 is a low level Palm OS cellphone launched many years ago, including a 0.3 megapixels back facing camera.

This phone is a little thick compared to today's cellphones, with a thickness of 0.8". This time, Palm forgot about optimizing the weight, releasing a 5.5 ounces heavyweight product.

Palm equipped this cellphone with a good level screen, and a 320 x 320 resolution, giving this phone a good level graphic quality. This screen uses TFT resistive technology, but it's not multi-touch.

This device counts with a 65,54 MB internal storage, a little quantity that might be enough for basic users considering that the Palm Treo 680 also has an SD card slot to store pictures and videos and even some games and apps that allow external memory installation.

This cellphone is only equipped with a 0.3 megapixels back facing camera. It is capable of filming videos up to 352x288 .

The Palm Treo 680 comes with a poor 1200 mAh Li-Ion removable battery, which is quite poor for a cellphone like this. Palm reports a 4 hs talk time and a 300 hs stand by time for this phone.

This cellphone provides 3G connectivity, over EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a SIM card for GSM carriers.

The Palm Treo 680 costs about 125 dollars, a high price for comparing with other similar devices.
