Chinese wholesaler gets its hands on Palm Pre?

Big wheel keep on turnin’, rumor mill keep on churnin’. As the Pre’s release draws closer, the device is popping up left and right all over the Internet. In the latest installation of Pre sightings, Ludle, a Chinese accessories wholesaler managed to snag a Pre, or at least it would appear that way. It’s entirely possible of course, that this is a dummy unit even a complete sham (it is in that market, after all). The person responsible for taking the pictures offered some brief first impressions of the phone as follows: First, it feels smaller than the iPhone, but does that surprise anyone since it is smaller than the iPhone? The plastic screen is also more susceptible to scratches than the glass screen on the iPhone, but that certainly could be due in part to the guy’s disgustingly long fingernail as seen in the image below. Finally, this tipster claims that the Pre is currently in mass production and will be officially arriving very shortly. Right on. Take this news however you want, but with so many units already hitting the streets it really does seem like a May launch is in the cards. Hit the jump for one more shot and Ludle dude, seriously, just say the word and we’ll happily trade you a nail clipper for that Pre.
