Rumor: Palm Pre successor to hit Verizon in October?

by Dieter Bohn Tue, 17 Aug 2010 11:59 am EDT


Phone Arena, who has a fairly decent track record when it comes to Verizon info, has anonymous info suggesting a "Palm Pre 2" could be on deck in the October timeframe:

Our source indicates that we might see the Palm Pre 2 doing its thing at this time, however, every bit of info regarding this possible successor seems to be held pretty tightly right now.

Given the dearth of rumors and hints out there right now, it's a little difficult to say how much confidence we have in the rumor - thin stock of the Pre Plus online notwithstanding. Then again, we did see the (possibly faked) "Roadrunner" running webOS 2.0 pop up in an app log last week.

Either you think these are the early signs of a potential new Palm device or you think people have been staring at the rumor noise so long they have convinced themselves there's a pattern in there. So: do you want to believe?
