Palm Treo 680 in Asia on December 8

Palm started accepting orders for Treo 680 on its website yesterday, and I learned that it will launch in the Philippines on November 29.

Meanwhile, CNET Asia reported that Palm has “announced that it will be shipping its latest Palm OS-powered cellular handheld, the Treo 680, to Asia come December 8.” A Palm representative has also confirmed that “Singapore will be first among the Asia-Pacific countries to get the new PDA-phone, though no dates have been set for the rest of the region,” the report added.

If the Treo 680 will launch in the Philippines next week, doesn’t it mean that we’ll see it earlier than Singaporeans do?

Palm Treo 680 Philippine launch next week

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Ever since I heard about Palm’s newest smartphone, the Palm Treo 680, from a friend who used to edit an info-tech publication, I’ve been regularly checking Google News for latest news on this “delicious” gadget.

I was not expecting the Treo 680 to be available in the Philippines until early next year, so I was surprised when my friend received this morning a press invitation for the Philippine launch of Treo 680. The invitation said:

It’s time to expect more from your phone.

You are cordially invited to join us in this exciting event as we unveil the latest addition to the Treo family–everything your next phone should be.

Palm Blogging for WordPress

Because my Palm m515 didn’t have direct connection to the Internet, I wanted to find a way how I could compose entries on my Palm and have these automatically posted on my WordPress blog when I sync.

I tried a number of palm blogging software available on the Web. None of those software worked. Most of the m-blogging tools required real-time Internet connection. I found one, though, that piqued my interest. It’s called AvantBlog. It lets users to post entries on their blog through AvantGo, a free service that allows users to download websites to their PDA when they sync. (I’ve been using AvantGo for a few years now to read the mobile version of INQ7, NYT, Time, and my blogs.) I thought I could use AvantBlog, but I later learned it was compatible only with Blogger.

I once tried answering comments on my blog using AvantGo by entering text on the form and tapping submit. After I synced, I noticed that my reply was posted on my blog. Then I thought that if I could post comments though AvantGo, why couldn’t I blog using the same tool? I later found out that it was actually possible.

If you are a WordPress user with a Palm, here’s a step-by-step guide: Continue reading
