Supposed photos of the new Palm Pre have leaked along with interesting details about the device.

First, a member of the TreoCentral message board posted a link to a Chinese Treo message board featuring photos of the new Pre set between a Centro and iPhone (as seen above). The photos come from Ludle International, a Chinese electronic parts and accessories wholesaler.

A translation of the Chinese Treo message board posting reveals the author spent some time with the Palm Pre. Among the highlights:

  • The Pre’s screen is less scratch resistant than the iPhone’s, while the Pre’s back is more scratch resistant despite being a fingerprint magnet.
  • The Pre is smaller than the iPhone.
  • The Palm Pre is currently in mass production.

Pre mass production would certainly give credence to rumors of an April or May launch date.

Of course, much of this information has been gathered from Chinese to English translations, so nothing can be confirmed. (via preThinking)
