SingTel Brings the Treo 680 to Singapore

Palm and SingTel today introduced the Palm Treo 680 smartphone, a GSM/GPRS/EDGE quad-band world phone, on the SingTel network in Singapore. SingTel customers will find the Palm OS based Treo 680 smartphone easy to use, slim and compact, yet packed full of features beyond its stellar phone capability, such as email, web browsing, messaging, multimedia, calendar, contacts and more.

Treo 680"SingTel is excited to bring the award-winning Palm Treo user experience to our customers," said Vicki Brady, vice president of Consumer Marketing for SingTel. "With multimedia, business, and wireless Internet capabilities right out of the box, the Treo 680 allows subscribers to leverage SingTel's island-wide wireless mobile data networks, as well as a selection of exclusive content available on SingTel IDEAS."

The Palm Treo 680 smartphone is easy to use because of the multiple innovations it encompasses, including the following:

  • Improved phone application, which allows users to dial and navigate the phone features more quickly;
  • Ability to ignore calls and send a quick text message, such as "In a meeting" or "Can't talk right now";
  • A full QWERTY keyboard with improved buttons, making it even easier to type emails or SMS text messages; and
  • A messaging application that displays text-messaging conversations as "threaded chats," meaning users can see their entire conversations with a particular person.

The Treo 680 is powered by Palm OS Garnet v5.4.9. It runs a 312 MHz Intel processor and has 64MB of user available storage memory and 64MB of SDRAM. The screen is a 320 x 320 pixel color touch-screen display. The 680 features a full size SD slot for memory expansion. It has a slimmer 1200 mAh rechargeable battery for up to 4 hours talk time. Bluetooth v1.2 wireless and IR are included as well as a VGA digital camera.
