Mole talks up Palm Pré... 2

An update to the not-even-out-yet smartphone

Everyone knows salt’s bad for you in large amounts, but you’ll need a fair sized dose if you’re to swallow the latest Palm Pré rumour. But it’s Register Hardware’s duty to report that a second Pré smartphone’s supposedly in the works.

Yes, we know what you’re thinking: 'But the first one’s not even out yet.' But according to some of website TechCrunch’s “better sources”, Palm is “very far along” on Pré Part Deux.

It’s unclear exactly what’s meant by “far along”. Is the firm far along with sketching out the design of the Pré’s successor? Or perhaps it’s far along deciding on how to finance the phone? Who knows.

Nonetheless, the source added that the new Pré will be smaller than its predecessor but it too will run Palm’s WebOS, developed specifically for the Pré.

The source hasn’t leaked anything about the second Pré’s potential communication capabilities or juicy technical features. However, they’ve claimed to know that the phone will appear during the later part of 2009. ®
