According to this PRNewswire release, AT&T today introduced an eye-catching, dark ruby-colored version of the BlackBerry Pearl and a striking crimson iteration of the Treo 680. The red BlackBerry Pearl is the first wireless handset to be branded for the new AT&T.
Both these red beauties are immediately available exclusively to AT&T customers at Cingular Wireless retail stores with the Treo 680 initially at select outlets, the BlackBerry Pearl at all stores nationwide, and through cingular.com, AT&T's wireless business-to-business sales organization, authorized dealers and select national retailers.
"The new, red BlackBerry Pearl and crimson Palm Treo 680 are the next
'gotta have it' wireless handsets from AT&T," said Michael Woodward,
executive director, mobile professional solutions, for AT&T. "The
additional choices of color offer panache and style, and these world-class products boast all of the features that made the original versions very popular among AT&T customers."
Both the Palm Treo 680 smart device and BlackBerry Pearl are available for as low as $199.99 with a two-year contract and after rebates.

Update: For more information, please go to cingular.com/blackberrypearl or
cingular.com/treo680. I clicked on the Treo 680 link but didn't actually see an ad for the Crimson 680. I believe this link is to purchase the Crimson Treo 680 for Business Purchases. In fact, one of our TreoCentral Forum members just put in an order for one.
I'm betting that these two gorgeous devices will be a big hit. The unlocked Crimson Treo 680 was anyway. Try to find one on ebay right now. The last time I looked, there weren't any available and it was the same with the Arctic 680. And I think there was only one Copper 680 there too the last time I was over there.
Speaking of the Crimson Treo 680's launch on AT&T, GX5 is celebrating the launch by giving away an exclusive set of specially designed wallpapers for the Crimson Treo, perfect for your launcher background, Calendar screen, and of course DialByPhoto. Be sure to go and check it out. GX5 has some awesome graphics!
