Treo 680 coming to Cingula

Palm's Treo 680 smartphone will be coming to the Cingular network, Engadget reports. Based on a PowerPoint document obtained by the website, it appears that the 680 will come with Palm OS 5.4.9, five-tabbed quick access (dial, favorites, home, contacts, call log), quad-band GSP/GPRS/EDGE, a 312MHz XScale processor, a 2.2-inch 320x320 screen, SDIO, Bluetooth 1.2, IR, PocketTunes, and a 1200mAh battery. One unusual aspect of the PowerPoint file is the list of compatible mail clients: it mentions Good, XpressMail, BlackBerry Connect, and something called "Microsoft Direct Push (Q1,'07)." This may be a means of getting "push" e-mail straight from an Exchange server for free, without a BES conduit.
