Palm Pre already being mass-produced?

Palm Pre Mass Prod Rumor

The Palm Pre is already in mass production if a slip from a Chinese wholesaler proves true. Ludle International claims that the device is already in volume production and should be available in the near future. As evidence, the company has what appears to be an example unit and provides early impressions of the design: in addition to feeling smaller than an iPhone, the design's screen is less scratch-proof but is compensated for by a tougher (though fingerprint-prone) back.

Actual software use isn't mentioned, though the Pre's CDMA networking wouldn't function in China, where GSM is the predominant format. The Pre is increasingly seen as arriving in the US on May 17th and would need to already be in mid-production for enough quantities to satisfy Sprint's online and retail stores. [via preThinking]

    Sprint Palm Pre

    This to the comment made that the Palm Pre would not work in China because of the GSM network there; well that is not true at all; CDMA is just as wide spread in China as GSM; there are CDMA networks in almost every major city & in non major cities; that means that anywhere there is a CDMA network the Palm Pre will work both for voice & data services
