Mike received an email detailing some undocumented features and various other tweaks to the 680 that are worth mentioning:
Versamail now directly opens zip attachments
You can hit the right arrow in various places in Versamail to bring up contextual menus - i.e. on messages, multiple messages, and attachments.
Bluetooth file tranfer does work natively - just use the "send" option from the launcher's menu.
The bluetooth radio supports multiple channels. This means you can use a bluetooth GPS unit and a headset at the same time! Huzzah!
Streaming and Media
The same streaming options from the 700p are on the 680.
pTunes' pop-up console is worth checking out, it's in pTunes' preferences. It's really a neat little tool.
The sync cable is now a sync and charge cable
Update: Chad writes in with this note: "I use a Treo 650 and I purchased the upgraded Versamail 3.5 for $10. It has all of the features you were describing- they are NOT exclusive to the 680! How cool is that! So anyone that has a newer Palm device can take advantage of the same features!" Good point Chad, thanks!
