The Palm Pre is already in mass production If a slip from a Chinese wholesaler is accurate, then the highly anticipated Palm Pre is already in mass production and the device could be available at the rumored May 17th release date.
Ludle International says the smartphone is already in volume production and the company provided an "example unit" and a packaging slip.

A few of the early impressions of the phone are that it "feels smaller than an iPhone, the design's screen is less scratch-proof but is compensated for by a tougher (though fingerprint-prone) back."

We will keep you updated.

But it has such small keys, I will probably buy the iphone because I feel it would be more user friendly

Physical keys (even if they are smaller) > Touchscreen keys (which are still quite small)

Personally I don't see how the iPhone has done so well, I mean the only people that should need a smartphone is business people, and there are a lot better smartphones out their and a lot cheaper.
