i am a confirmed treo 600, 650 and now 680 user so please dont feel i just rant about treo, however the battery life on my 680 is LESS THAN HALF that of my 650. I know the battery is smaller however palm in their literature claimed the battery life would be EQUAL to the 650. I am not an email user, i only use the phone for its normal pda functions and phone calls. My 650 battery would always last approx two days. I cannot get thru one day with the 60 without recharging. I feel that palm should send a second battery or, at least stop the claim of equal battery life. i will be calling them. dave (otherwise imstill happy) P. S. Imagine you are travelling with the 680 and dont have access to charging when you need it, in that case alone this short battery life is a real issue.
