Breaking: Palm Treo 680 Delayed Due To Manufacturer Screw Up

Let's Get This Party Started!

So earlier we told you how Amazon yanked the Palm Treo 680 off their website. Now we know why thanks to a reliable source – Apparently 144,000 Treo 680s were shipped out and had to be sent back because some genius forgot to connect the internal microphones. The manufacturer (who isn’t HTC) had to take back all 144,00 680s and fix them all. No word yet on how long shipments are going to be delayed for, but this is a huge screw up on the manufacturer’s part. It might seem minuscule to some, but imagine if Ford sent out 10,000 Explorers without connecting the brakes. See what we mean? Hopefully the first batch of Treo 680s won’t have too many flaws in their first shipment.
