Chinese Tipster Claims Palm Pre Already In Mass Production

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

First, a member of the target="blank" title="TreoCentral">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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
