Treo trade: 650 for 680
Now that the Treo 680 smartphone is finally available to take home, what are you gonna do with that crusty old 650? If it still works and is in decent cosmetic condition, Palm will buy it from you for $125! Brand new 680s start at $200, so this is a pretty spectacular deal.
Just get to Palm’s Treo trade-in page, submit a quote by December 18th, and ship the 650 (with a copy of your purchase receipt: you saved this, right?) by January 5th. Don’t camp out at the mailbox, though, as your $125 check (for 680s purchased directly from Palm) or gift certificate to Palm.com (for 680s purchased from other retailers) will take about two months to arrive.
Oh, and until December 22nd, unlocked 680s ($399) ship with a free Mobile Music Pack. Valued at $135, the pack includes a 1GB SD card, hybrid headset, and music CD containing Pocket Tunes Deluxe and a 30-day free trial of Yahoo! Music Unlimited to Go.
