November 5th is the release date for Cingular
When Palm, Inc. introduced the Treo 680 earlier this month, it did not announce which carriers would be offering this smart phone. However, thanks to various rumors and leaks, it has been known for some time that Cingular Wireless would be the first to release it - at least in the States.
Thanks to a PowerPoint presentation that has been leaked on the Web, it now appears that the date the latest Treo will debut on Cingular's network will be November 5.
This same document goes on to list what are supposedly the various prices for this upcoming smart phone. However, at one point it slightly contradicts itself.
It says that that the Treo 680 will be $425 without a contract, $250 with a 1-year contract and an unlimited data plan, and $175 a 2-year contract and an unlimited data plan.
However, the leaked presentation also includes what is apparently going to be a print ad for this device that gives its price as $200.
