If you have a GSM Treo 650 that's getting long in the tooth and you're out of contract (or you have a GSM Treo 600), the Treo 680 is a worthwhile upgrade, though definitely not mandatory. If you find your battery talked down at the end of the day, that is a factor that you would do well to consider -- again, the Treo 680 gets about 2 hours less talk time than the Treo 650.

The 680, however, is primarily intended for new smartphone users and feature phone upgraders. If you're one of these people, the Treo 680 is a great match. The limited battery capacity is unfortunate, but shouldn't be an issue if you don't talk much or are good about charging your phone every night or so.
